Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a dispute concerning the imposition by Argentina of provisional and definitive safeguard measures on imports of footwear and followed on from the Argentina - Textiles case. In the latter, the Panel had decided not to examine the consistency of Argentina's specific import duties on footwear with the WTO Agreement inasmuch as they had been repealed before the Panel was set up. However, further developments were to prove the Panel wrong in this respect. The European Communities thereupon asked the Panel to confirm the inconsistency of the new measures with the Agreement on Safeguards and with the GATT 1994. The Appellate Body, in addition to making certain findings concerning the terms of reference and the basic rationale that a panel should provide, clarified several important aspects of the Agreement on Safeguards, particularly as regards the conditions for imposing a safeguard measure.
