Communication from the Chairman of the Dispute Settlement Body


3 August 2000

With reference to your comments regarding the need to circulate not only requests for consultations (Article 4.3 of the DSU) and requests to be joined in consultations (Article 4.11 of the DSU), but also the various responses to such requests to be joined into consultations, I have looked into the matter and advised the Secretariat that it should resort to its previous practice of circulating a Note identifying Members accepted to participate in consultations pursuant to Article 4.11 of the DSU, where such information has been made available to the Secretariat.
