The WTO oversees the dispute settlement system of the GATT, but since the decisions of panels are no longer dependent upon the consent of the parties to a dispute, the process is ultimately not one of mediation or conciliation.

If after 60 days from the request for consultations there is no settlement, the complaining party may request the establishment of a panel. Where consultations are denied, the complaining party may move directly to request a panel. The parties may voluntarily agree to follow alternative means of dispute settlement, including good offices, conciliation, mediation and arbitration.
