Use of the Dispute Settlement Mechanism of the WTO by Developing Countries in the Context of Food Safety

Food safety issues are becoming increasingly important in international trade, especially for developing countries that rely on exports. The Dispute Settlement Mechanism (DSM) of the World Trade Organization (WTO) serves as an important forum for trade-related issues among member countries. This study reviews the main food safety regulations currently prevailing in international trade, and examines food safety-related issues raised by member countries. Developed countries have engaged the mechanism for some time, but developing countries have started to use it only recently. The results of this study have several important implications for policymakers and stakeholders with regard to global trade issues. The long duration of the process and lack of regional representation highlight the importance of empowering the capacity of developing countries in terms of legal aspects.
