Summary of the case

The EU-Algeria Association Agreement includes provisions that allow for the settlement of disputes arising from the interpretation or application of the agreement.

In June 2024, the EU initiated a dispute settlement procedure under the Association Agreement to resolve a dispute concerning some restrictive measures introduced by Algeria as of 2021, targeting trade in goods and investments.

The measures challenged include an import licensing system with the effects of an import ban, subsidies contingent on the use of local inputs for car manufacturers, and a cap on foreign ownership for companies importing goods in Algeria.
