Summary of the case

The EU includes a dispute settlement mechanism in all its trade agreements so that the EU and its trading partners can resolve disputes.

The system allows for the rapid settlement of disputes and is modeled after the WTO dispute settlement system. It is specifically designed to deal with disputes arising out of the rules of the bilateral trade agreement.

On 17 December 2018, the EU requested formal consultations with the government of the Republic of Korea regarding the implementation of the sustainable development commitments under the EU-Korea trade agreement. 

On 4 July 2019, the EU requested a panel to address its concerns after previous efforts to resolve the issues at stake had failed.
