DISPUTE SETTLEMENT: THE DISPUTES
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.
