Wto Agreement Dsu

2. The organs shall deal with the relevant provisions of any covered agreement or agreement cited by the parties to the dispute. Any special or additional rules or procedures in plurilateral trade agreements established by the competent authorities of each agreement and notified to the DSB. 2. In accordance with Article 3(2), the panel and the Appellate Body shall not supplement or reduce, in their conclusions and recommendations, the rights and obligations provided for in the relevant agreements. Where a Member State considers that a measure adopted by another Member State has deprived it of an advantage derived from one of the agreements referred to, it may request consultations with the other Member State. [15] If consultations fail to resolve the dispute within 60 days of receipt of the request for consultation, the complainant may request the establishment of a panel. It is not possible for the requesting State to prevent or delay the establishment of an agency unless the DSB decides otherwise by mutual agreement. [16] The Panel, which normally consists of three members appointed ad hoc by the Secretariat, receives written and oral submissions from the parties, on the basis of which it should prepare findings and conclusions to be submitted to the DSB. The procedure is confidential and, even if private parties are directly concerned, they may not participate or make contributions separate from those of the State concerned.

[17] Disputes may also arise in the context of claims for non-infringement of services. [18] 2. The rules and procedures of this Agreement shall be subject to the special or supplementary rules and procedures for dispute settlement contained in the agreements referred to in Annex 2 to this Agreement. To the extent that there is a difference between the rules and procedures of this Agreement and the special or supplementary rules and procedures set out in Appendix 2, the special or supplementary rules and procedures set out in Appendix 2 shall prevail. In the case of disputes concerning rules and procedures under more than one covered agreement, where there is a conflict between special or supplementary rules and procedures of such agreements to be reviewed and the parties to the dispute are unable to agree on rules and procedures within 20 days of the establishment of the panel, the Chair of the dispute settlement body provided for in Article 2(1) (referred to in this Agreement as the DSB) shall establish, in consultation with the parties to the dispute, the rules and procedures to be followed within 10 days of the request of either Member. The Chair shall be guided by the principle that, to the extent possible, special or additional rules and procedures should be applied and that the rules and procedures set out in this Agreement should be applied to the extent necessary to avoid conflicts. The WTO Analysis Index is a comprehensive guide to the interpretation and application of WTO Agreements by the Appellate Body, Dispute Settlement Bodies and other WTO bodies. It contains excerpts from the main statements and conclusions of tens of thousands of WTO jurisdictions, including panel reports, appelation reports and arbitral awards, as well as decisions of WTO committees, councils and other bodies. (b) where it has been established that a measure does not impede or jeopardise the performance of the covered agreement concerned or impede the achievement of the objectives without infringing it, there shall be no obligation to withdraw the measure. However, in such cases, the panel or appellate body shall recommend that the Member concerned make a mutually satisfactory adjustment; Parties and third parties to a case participate in the implementation of the WTO dispute settlement procedure and may also involve DSB bodies, the Appellate Body, the WTO Secretariat, arbitrators, independent experts and several specialized agencies.
