At present, the EC is actively involved in 341 WTO disputes: in 16 of these cases the EC is the complaining party while in the remaining 18 cases the EC is on the defending side.
These cases relate to the EC’s relations with 15 of its trading partners (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Honduras, India, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and the US).
Dispute settlement activities against the US continue to represent the majority of EC’s active disputes. In most of these disputes it is the EC which is the complaining party (7), being the defendant in 5 cases (GMOs, hormones, bananas, aircraft and Information  Technology Agreement). Regarding the substance of EC’s offensive cases with the US, a major part concerns the misuse of trade defence instruments.
