Summary of the dispute to date back to top
The summary below was up-to-date at
Complaint by Panama.
On 24 October 1997, Panama requested
consultations with the EC in respect of the EC’s regime for the
importation, sale and distribution of bananas as established through
Regulation 404/93, as well as any subsequent legislation, regulations or
administrative measures adopted by the EC, including those reflecting
the Framework Agreement on Bananas. Panama did not specify the WTO
provisions which the EC regime violates. This is the same regime that
was the subject of a successful challenge by the US, Ecuador, Guatemala,
Honduras, and Mexico (WT/DS27).
Mutually agreed solution
On 8 November 2012, the European Union and Panama notified the DSB of a mutually agreed solution pursuant to Article 3.6 of the DSU.
