The Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD) was founded in 1998 as a forum for transatlantic discussions on Intellectual rights, Internet society, and food[1] between and among consumer organizations in the United States and European Union.[2][3] Members include The European Consumers' Organisation, ACLU, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Privacy International, Consumers Union and Consumer Federation of America [4]

TACD holds a conference once a year, alternately in U.S.A and the EU [5]

Some activities have been funded by Open Society Institute. [6]
