Dispute resolution

he chapter on dispute resolution sets out a process for settling disputes over how to interpret or apply the agreement correctly. EFTA FTAs stipulate that differences between the parties are to be resolved by diplomatic means as far as possible. However, they also provide for an arbitration procedure for disputes that cannot be settled in this way. An arbitration tribunal of this kind is set up for each individual case and is made up of three experienced arbitrators. The tribunal will issue a binding and final ruling as to whether the measure being disputed is compatible with the FTA.
