SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dispute Settlement Mechanisms of U.S. Free Trade Agreements U.S. free trade agreements set out detailed procedures for the resolution of disputes over compliance with the obligations set out in each agreement. Generally, dispute settlement involves three stages: (1) Lower level consultations between the disputing Parties to try to arrive at a mutually satisfactory resolution of the matter; (2) PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73509 cabinet-level consultations; and, (3) resort to a neutral panel to make a determination as to whether a Party is in compliance with its obligations under the agreement. This panel is composed of individuals chosen by the Parties. The method by which the panel is selected varies between agreements. Some agreements require the establishment of a roster, from which panelists shall normally be selected. See e.g. Chile FTA, Article 22.7. Other agreements allow the Parties to select anyone as a panelist, after consultations, but provide for a contingent list from which panelists can be selected by lot, if the Parties do not otherwise select a panelist. See e.g. Singapore FTA, Article 20.4; Australia FTA, Article 21.7; Morocco FTA, Article 20.7. Eligible individuals who wish to be considered for the various rosters and lists will be invited to submit applications. Persons submitting applications may either send one copy by fax or transmit a copy electronically. Applications must be typewritten, and should be headed ‘‘Application for Consideration as an FTA Panelist.’’ Applications will be asked to include the following information: 1. Name of the applicant. 2. Business address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address. 3. Citizenship(s). 4. Agreement or agreements for which the applicant wishes to be considered. 5. Current employment, including title, description of responsibility, and name and address of employer. 6. Relevant education and professional training. 7. Relevant language fluency, written and spoken. 8. Post-education employment history, including the dates and addresses of each prior position and a summary of responsibilities. 9. Relevant professional affiliations and certifications, including, if any, current bar memberships in good standing. 10. A list and copies of publications, testimony, and speeches, if any, concerning the relevant area of expertise. Judges or former judges should list relevant judicial decisions. Only one copy of publications, testimony, speeches, and decisions need be submitted. 11. Summary of any current and past employment by, or consulting or other work for, the Government of the United States or for the government of the other Party to the Agreement for which you be to be considered (e.g. NAFTA, Singapore, Chile, Australia, or Morocco).
