EPA. Procedures for the recognition of equivalence require one party to explain the reasons for a particular regulation as well as its objectives and its basis for the other party to be able to show that its standards and regulations meet the same objective. In this process, however, the EU could come under pressure, as it is required to justify its regulations by the WTO SPS Agreement and its underlying values and purposes, which do not reflect the EU precautionary principle. Although recognition of equivalence does not directly change European standards of protection, the precautionary principle and its implementation could be constrained. Indeed, Japan’s products could be recognized as equivalent to the European ones and marketed in the EU, without being previously authorized under an EU regime according to the precautionary principle70. The execution of EPA marked a milestone for the economic relations between EU and Japan and is expected to boost trade in goods and services between these two countries by creating new opportunities of exchange and investments71. However, at this stage, it is hard to evaluate the impact that the precautionary approach, under article 16.9 EPA, will exercise in the trade and investment relations between EU and Japan and in the implementation of the precautionary principle under EU law. From the one side, the soft legal nature and the flexible/open content of the precautionary approach under EPA transfers to the Parties and, in case of controversies, to the Committee on Trade and EFA Trade Working Group’, <xxxxx://xxx.xxxxxxxxx.xx/files/doc/ docs/3c6173360eb7d0662468800001c0740c.pdf> (2018) accessed 28 February 2020. 63 For similar considerations as to CETA and the TTIP, see: Xxxxxx X., Xxxxx X.X., De Sadeleer N., Xxxxxxx X., ‘CETA, TTIP and the EU precautionary principle.

EPA. The EPA implements Section 303(d) of the CWA by reviewing, and either approving or disapproving the Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) developed by ODEQ. By achieving the TMDL goals in Diamond Lake, not only will the lake benefit, but the watershed and waterbodies downstream also benefit from the improved water quality conditions. (In Oregon, the ODEQ has the responsibility, under Section 303(d) of the CWA to develop TMDLs for waterbodies not meeting state water quality standards. The TMDLs are written to identify how the pollutant loadings need to be reduced to improve water quality in those waterbodies so they meet state water quality standards and thus protect the beneficial uses for those waters.) Additionally, EPA provides technical support and other resources, when available, to assist the state in the TMDL development process, and encourages the state and others to take a holistic watershed approach for restoring and protecting its waters and the surrounding landscape.

THE PRECAUTIONARY APPROACH IN THE ECONOMIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT BETWEEN EU AND JAPAN: A THREAT TO THE EUROPEAN PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE? market of biocidal products48, pesticides49, and chemical products50. Since no other TFEU provision contains a reference to the precautionary principle, it could be considered that this principle applies only to environmental matters. However, since the National Farmers’ Union and United Kingdom v Commission judgments of 5 May 1998, the Court of Justice has consistently held that the precautionary principle may also be invoked in the field of public health51. The CJEU considers that the extension of the scope of the precautionary principle to the field of public health can be explained in terms of the integration between EU environmental and health policies. First, both environmental policy and public health policy occupy a privileged position in EU law since they must be considered in a cross-cutting manner. On the one hand, Article 168 TFEU requires that a high level of human health protection be ensured in the definition and implementation of all Union policies and activities and, in similar terms, Article 9 TFEU provides that in defining and implementing its policies and activities, the Union shall take into account requirements relating, inter alia, to a high level of human health protection. On the other hand, under Article 11 TFEU, environmental protection requirements are to be integrated into the definition and implementation of Union policies and activities. Secondly, Article 191 § 2 TFEU states that Union policy on the environment shall contribute to further protecting human health. Health protection is thus seen as one of the objectives of environmental policy. This means that, when taking action to protect the environment, decision-makers must also ensure the protection of health52. Based on these two arguments, the CJEU states that the precautionary principle, enshrined in Article 191 § 2 as one of the principles of environmental policy, may also be applied in the field of public health. The precautionary principle is most often invoked today in the field of public health53. However, a d...
