10. With respect to recommendations where there is no violation of the 1994 GATT or other covered agreement, see Article 26. Dispute resolution provisions contained in covered agreements may be invoked for measures that undermine their compliance by regional or local authorities or authorities in a member`s territory. If the DSB has decided that a provision of a covered agreement has not been complied with, the responsible member takes appropriate measures to ensure compliance. The provisions of the covered agreements and this agreement on the compensation and suspension of concessions or other obligations apply in cases where such compliance has not been possible (17). The dispute resolution process is based primarily on consultations between the governments concerned. If these consultations fail, the matter can be referred to a dispute resolution body. (At any time in the trial, the parties may settle their differences and terminate the proceedings.) As both parties heard their arguments, the panel issued a report indicating whether the measure at issue was compatible with WTO obligations. The report also contains the panel`s recommendations. As a last resort, the Dispute Settlement Agreement authorizes complaining countries to impose trade-related sanctions on WTO member states that constitute proven violations of a WTO agreement. 2. The Litigation Council informs the relevant WTO councils and committees of any progress on disputes over the provisions of the relevant agreements. 3.
When a request for consultation is made pursuant to a covered agreement, the member to whom the application is submitted responds to the request within 10 days of receiving the application, unless agreed upon, and engages in good faith consultations within a maximum of thirty days of receipt of the application. to reach a satisfactory solution for both parties. If the member does not respond within 10 days of receiving the request, or does not consult within 30 days or within an agreed time frame upon receipt of the request, the member who requested the consultation may immediately request the creation of a panel.
