Chapter Summary

Considering the complexity of Article XXIV of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (GATT 1994) and the vagueness of many of the individual provisions contained therein, the Understanding on the Interpretation of Article XXIV of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (the Understanding) provides clarification on a number of important and hitherto unresolved issues with the object of reinvigorating the legal disciplines of Art. XXIV GATT 1994. In paras 1 to 12, the Understanding, first, concretizes several aspects of the World Trade Organization (WTO) framework for the formation of customs unions (CUs) and free trade areas (FTAs). In particular, it adds clarity to the meaning of Art. XXIV:5, 6, 7 and 12 GATT 1994 as well as to the availability of dispute settlement procedures with respect to matters arising in the context of CUs, FTAs and interim agreements in the sense of Art. XXIV GATT 1994.

Keywords: customs unions (CUs); free trade areas (FTAs); GATT 1994; World trade Organization (WTO)
