Summary
Dispute resolution in the World Trade Organization (WTO) is carried out under the WTO Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU), whose rules and procedures apply to virtually all WTO agreements. The DSU provides for consultations between disputing parties, panels and appeals, and possible compensation or retaliation if a defending party does not comply with an adverse WTO decision by a given date. Automatic establishment of panels, adoption of reports, and authorization of requests to retaliate, along with deadlines for various stages of the dispute process and improved multilateral surveillance and enforcement of WTO obligations, are aimed at producing a more expeditious and effective system than that which existed under the GATT. To date, 343 WTO complaints have been filed, slightly more than half of which involve the United States as the complaining party or defendant. Expressing dissatisfaction with WTO dispute settlement results in the trade remedy area, Congress directed the executive branch to address dispute settlement issues in WTO negotiations in its grant of trade promotion authority to the President in August 2002 (P.L. 107-210). WTO Members have been negotiating DSU revisions in the WTO Doha Round, though a draft agreement has not yet been produced. S. 817 (Stabenow), S. 1542 (Stabenow), S. 2317 (Baucus), and H.R. 4186 (Camp) would each establish a new position in the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to help the USTR investigate and prosecute WTO disputes. S. 2467 (Grassley) would make the USTR General Counsel a confirmable position expressly responsible for WTO dispute settlement. H.R. 4733 (Rangel) and H.R. 5043 (Cardin) would create new congressional entities with functions related to WTO disputes
