Public Able to View Oral Hearing in WTO US-COOL Dispute
Following a request from Canada and the United States, two of the participants in “United States – Certain Country of Origin Labelling (COOL) Requirements – Recourse to Article 21.5 of the DSU by Canada and Mexico” (WT/DS384, WT/DS386), the WTO Appellate Body has decided to open the oral hearing on 16 and 17 February 2015 to public observation via simultaneous closed-circuit broadcast to a separate viewing room in the WTO headquarters in Geneva. Space is limited, so persons wishing to view the hearing must pre-register here by February 4. Space will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
