Summary: This contribution provides an overview of a selection of significant recent developments on international level regarding the regulation of health and the environment, which are of relevance to the European Union. It focuses on developments with regard to the interaction between free trade and risk regulation in the area of health and the environment. Developments in this regard will be examined in the context of the World Trade Organisation, and other international organisations or initiatives establishing rules, setting harmonised standards or promoting international cooperation in this area. As the European Union plays an active role in the international arena, these developments will have an impact on its internal regulatory policies as well as on its external actions in international fora.
