European Commission’s Tourism Advisory Committee

The European Commission’s Tourism Advisory Committee (hereinafter referred to as the ‘TAC’) was established under Council Decision 86/664/EEC of 22 December 1986. The TAC is comprised of representatives of EU Member States, who gather for meetings a few times per year, according to need. The purpose of the TAC is to exchange information among EU Member States and Candidate countries in the field of tourism, to consult and provide the opportunity to present the country’s position by drawing up guidelines on the latest European tourism policy, introducing Europe as a tourist region, addressing the most relevant tourism-related issues, and adopting communications from the European Commission.
