WTO Arbitrator determines reasonable period of time in “US-COOL” dispute

The WTO arbitrator decided that the United States has until May 23, 2013, to bring its COOL measure into compliance with its WTO obligations.

Friday 7 December 2012 (5 years 2 months 17 days ago)

The World Trade Organization (WTO) arbitrator decided that the United States has until May 23, 2013, to bring its Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) measure into compliance with its WTO obligations.

The arbitro considers that the reasonable period of time should be the period of time necessary for the United States to implement the DSB's recommendations and rulings within its domestic legal system and that the requirement of Article 2.12 of the TBT Agreement does not justify granting additional time in this case. The arbitror, therefore, determines that the reasonable period of time for the United States to implement the recommendations and rulings of the DSB in these disputes is 10 months from the date of adoption of the Panel and Appellate Body Reports on 23 July 2012. The reasonable period of time will thus end on 23 May 2013.

Wednesday December 5, 2012/ WTO.
