Disputes by agreement (as cited in request for consultations)

A dispute arises when a member government believes another member government is violating a WTO agreement. The complaining member must submit a “request for consultations” identifying the agreements it believes are being violated. A dispute can be, and often is, brought under more than one agreement. The list below shows the agreements cited in the request for consultations.


This summary has been prepared by the Secretariat under its own responsibility. The summary is for general information only and is not intended to affect the rights and obligations of Members.
