Trims Agreement Articles
Beckers-Schwarz; “The TRIMs Agreement – A Comment” TDM 3 (2011), www.transnational-dispute-management.com URL: www.transnational-dispute-management.com/article.asp?key=1736 Article 2.2 refers to the national treatment obligation under Article III(4) of the GATT in 1994, as well as the obligation to eliminate quantitative restrictions under Article XI(1) of the GATT 1994. Article 2.2 also refers to an illustrative list of TRIM, which is set out in the Annex to the TRIMs Agreement. The term “illustrative” indicates that the examples in the list do not constitute a closed list. In other words, there may be other types of TRIM that are inconsistent with the national treatment obligation in Article III(4) and with the obligation to eliminate quantitative restrictions under Article XI(1) of the GATT in 1994. .
