Aircraft manufacture, aircraft export, illegal export subsidy, WTO, free trade, countervailing duties, dispute settlement system, non-compliance.
This article broadly analyses the circumstance of non-compliance with the rulings of the Dispute Settlement Body (the ‘DSB’) of the World Trade Organization (the ‘WTO’) and the remedies provided by WTO law. The issue of non-compliance opens the gateway to the imposition of remedies, largely affecting free trade and hindering the objectives of the system. This problem is strongly evidenced in bigger markets like the aircraft manufacture and export sectors. This article aims at establishing the justification for finding alternative answers to the imposition of trade barriers, advocating for the exclusion of the defaulted Member of the WTO (the ‘Member(s)’), until their compliance with the DSB’s rulings.
