Dispute Settlement As A Part Of Multilateral Environmental Agreements

However, there are also some shortcomings in this system. B that the lack of transparency and NGO participation in procedures (despite the use of Amicus`s letters) (despite the emergence of a “trend towards greater transparency”), 6 of the implementation and compliance issues and, most importantly for this study, their importance in cases relating to environmental issues. Article XX of the GATT [art. XX, GATT, b), (g), (hat) provides exceptions to the trade obligations of the agreement on the environment. Thus, before the WTO agreement, there were already cases concerning environmental issues such as tuna (USA vs. Canadia), salmon and herring (USA vs. Canadia), Cigarettes Case (USA vs Thailand), the fall of tuna (USA against Mexico), the fall of tuna (USA vs. CEE), automobile (USA vs. CEE). After the WTO agreement on gasoline (USA vs Brazil, Venezuele), Shrimp Turtle Case (USA vs. Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Thailand (common case) and asbestos (EC v. Canada) can be considered as examples7. With regard to the specific issue of compliance, it should be noted that the WTO agreements also contain provisions to facilitate compliance, such as notification requirements, counter-communications, transparency, committees to review the functioning of the corresponding agreement.3 Multilateral environmental agreements are an important instrument for examining the functioning of the agreement.

More than 250 multilateral environmental agreements (MEA) are currently in force and deal with various environmental issues. About 20 of these MEAs contain provisions for trade control in order to prevent environmental damage: the Ministerial Decision of Marrakech on Trade and the Environment contains the work programme of the Committee on Trade and the Environment (CTE). Points 1 and 5 relate to the relationship between the rules of the multilateral trading system and the trade measures contained in THE MEAs, as well as between their dispute settlement mechanisms. Before requesting the creation of a panel, the complainant should grant 60 days after receiving the request for consultation, if all parties to the dispute believe that the good offices, conciliation procedure or mediation procedure have not resolved the dispute, the complainant may request the creation of a panel during the 60-day period (Article 5.4 DSU). While the panel process continues, good offices, conciliation or mediation procedures can continue in parallel if all parties to the dispute agree on this point (s. 5.5, DSU). With regard to transparency, the four members agreed in the ministerial decision on notification procedures (15 April 1994) on improving transparency, the effectiveness of monitoring systems and the implementation of publication and notification procedures under WTO agreements.

In addition, this decision referred to the creation of a Central Notification Register (NRC) which would inform members of the
