Complaint by the European Communities.

This request, dated 14 October 1999, is in respect of a number of Brazilian measures, particularly Brazil’s non-automatic licensing system and the minimum pricing practice, which allegedly restrict EC exports — notably of textile products, Sorbitol and Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC). The EC claimed that those Brazilian measures violate, in particular, Articles II, VIII, X and XI of the GATT 1994; Article 4.2 of the Agreement on Agriculture; Articles 1, 3, 5 and 8 of the Agreement on Import Licensing Procedures; and Articles 1 through 7 of the Agreement on Implementation of Article VII of the GATT 1994.
