The second event in the TBT@40 Dialogue Series will look at how Members use the TBT Committee to raise and discuss "Specific Trade Concerns" (STCs) with respect to each other's regulatory measures. This established practice is often considered a model to address (and even solve) trade friction without having to resort to costly, time-consuming WTO litigation. This event will allow speakers and discussants to assess how successful this practice has been, in which ways it could be improved and whether it could also be transposed to other WTO bodies.
