- Enforcement and protection
Since 1996, 24 TBR examination procedures have been initiated.
The TBR has been used to serve the needs of a variety of industries (music, textile, spirits…) and has considered practices of different trading partners (Brazil, Canada, Japan, Turkey et cetera).
In some of those cases, a solution has been reached through negotiation or action by the third country and in others by means of WTO dispute settlement procedures.
