(7) Before the appeal, a member decides whether the measures taken in these procedures are effective. The objective of the dispute resolution mechanism is to achieve a positive solution to a dispute. A solution acceptable to the parties to the dispute and compatible with the covered agreements is clearly preferable. In the absence of an amicable solution, the first objective of the dispute resolution mechanism is generally to ensure the withdrawal of the measures concerned when they are found to be incompatible with the provisions of one of the covered agreements. Compensation should only be used when the immediate withdrawal of the measure is not feasible and, on a temporary basis, until the measure incompatible with a covered agreement is withdrawn. The last resort that this agreement offers the member on the basis of dispute resolution procedures is the possibility of suspending the application of concessions or other obligations arising from the agreements covered on a discriminatory basis against the other member, subject to the approval of such measures by the dispute resolution body. 12. Notwithstanding paragraph 11, when a member of a developing country files a complaint on the basis of one of the covered agreements against a member of a developed country: The complaining party has the right to invoke as an alternative to the provisions of Articles 4, 5, 6 and 12 of this agreement the corresponding provisions of the decision of 5 April 1966 (BISD 14S/18), except that if the proceeding considers that the time frame provided in paragraph 7 of this decision is not sufficient to present its report and may be extended with the consent of the complainant. To the extent that there is a difference between the rules and procedures covered by Articles 4, 5, 6 and 12 and the corresponding rules and procedures of the decision, it prevails.

4. The recommendations or decisions of the dispute resolution body are intended to achieve a satisfactory resolution of the issue, in accordance with the rights and obligations arising from this agreement and the agreements covered. 5. All solutions to issues formally raised in the consultation and dispute resolution provisions of covered agreements, including arbitration awards, are consistent with these agreements and do not compromise or impede the achievement of an objective of these agreements. 7. There is no agreement on the roundtable participants within 20 days of setting up a panel, At the request of one of the parties, the Director General, in consultation with the Chair of the Dispute Resolution Body and the Chair of the Relevant Board or Committee, determines the composition of the proceeding by appointing the panelists whom the Director General deems most suitable, after hearing the parties to the dispute, according to the relevant special or additional rules or procedures of the covered agreement or the disputed agreements at issue. The President of the DSB informs the members of the composition of the body thus constituted no later than ten days after receiving the application. 2. Working groups review the relevant provisions of all agreements or agreements covered by the parties to the dispute. 1.

If members seek compensation for a breach or cancellation or breach of the benefits of the covered agreements or an obstacle to achieving an objective of the covered agreements, they must make use of the rules and procedures of that agreement and comply with them. The Dispute Settlement or Dispute Settlement (DSS) system is considered by the World Trade Organization (WTO) to be a central pillar of the multilateral trading system and a ”unique contribution of the Organization to the stability of the global economy.” [1] A dispute arises when a Member State takes a trade policy action or takes action that one or more colleagues consider to be a violation of WTO agreements or a breach of obligations.
