Complaint by Switzerland.

On 7 May 1998, Switzerland requested consultations with the Slovak Republic concerning measures imposed by the Slovak Republic (in particular, a decree of 6 July 1996) with respect to the importation of dairy products and the transit of cattle. Switzerland contended that these measures had a negative impact on Swiss exports of cheese and cattle. Switzerland alleged that some of these measures are inconsistent with Articles I, III, V, X and XI of GATT 1994, Article 5 of the SPS Agreement, and Article 5 of the Import Licensing Agreement.
