Abstract

This paper examines the recent WTO Panel Report in US- Clove Cigarettes within the context of the other two ongoing WTO disputes concerning US measures under the WTO's Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade. Appeals in two of the cases are underway and the third is anticipated, providing the WTO Appellate Body with an unprecedented opportunity to clarify WTO rules in this field.
