UNITED STATES - STANDARDS FOR REFORMULATED

                                              AND CONVENTIONAL GASOLINE

 

                                         Request for Establishment of a Panel by Brazil

 

 

        The following communication dated 19 May 1995 from the Permanent Mission of Brazil to the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB), is circulated to Members. 

 

                                                            _______________

 

1.     With reference to document WT/DS4/1, dated 12 April 1995, I hereby inform you that consultations between the Governments of Brazil and of the United States on Standards for Reformulated and Conventional Gasoline took place in Geneva on 1 May 1995.  Unfortunately, it has not been possible to find a satisfactory solution for the issue raised by Brazil regarding the application of the above-mentioned Regulation by the United States.

 

2.     The Government of Brazil has therefore decided to request the establishment of a panel, at the next meeting of the Dispute Settlement Body, pursuant to Article XXIII of GATT 1994, Article 14 of the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade and Articles 4 and 6 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (DSU).

 

3.     With a view toward harmonizing the scheduling of this matter with that of the similar complaint by Venezuela, as contemplated in Articles 9.1 and 9.2 of the DSU, Brazil requests that the terms of reference contained in document WT/DS2/3 be amended so as to include a mention to the document attached herewith, it being understood that all rights of Brazil in the proceeding are in no way impaired.

 

4.     The Mission of Brazil kindly asks you to include this request in the agenda of the meeting of the Dispute Settlement Body scheduled for 31 May 1995 and to circulate the attached communication.
