Analytical Index

General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 1994

The GATT 1994 is contained in Annex 1A of the WTO Agreement. It incorporates by reference the provisions of the GATT 1947, a legally distinct international treaty applied provisionally from 1948 to 1995. GATT jurisprudence and practice pre-dating the WTO as regards the provisions of the GATT 1947 is summarised in the GATT Analytical Index, the predecessor to the WTO Analytical Index.

Member's Schedules of Concessions form an integral part of the GATT 1994. The GATT 1994 is administered by the Council for Trade in Goods and the Committees reporting to it. Dedicated portions of the WTO website provide access to WTO documents relating to trade in goods as well as WTO disputes brought under the GATT 1994.
