Abstract.

The subject of this research is the question of implementation of temporary measures in case of non-compliance with the decisions of the Dispute Settlement Body of the World Trade Organization. The author analyzes the implementation of temporary measures in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), explores the order of implementation of temporary measures with regards to the Agreement of rules and procedures regulating the dispute settlement, studies the question of the volume of suspension of concessions as a temporary measure, as well as the possible issues that can emerge at the stage of determination of the volume. The author analyzes the practice of implementation of temporary measures. The scientific novelty lies in detailed consideration of the order of implementation of temporary measures in case of non-compliance with the decision of the Dispute Settlement Body of the World Trade Organization, as well as examination of the corresponding practice of the countries established within the framework of GATT / WTO. The study of this question remains relevant so that Russia can seize an opportunity for protecting its interests to the fullest possible extent in terms of WTO. The following conclusions were made: compensation is not a sufficiently effective temporary measure, therefore, the countries more often refer to suspension of concessions; mechanism for suspending concessions cannot be called perfect, because the developing countries are often not able to implement such measure for protecting their interests, thus it would seem that such mechanism requires reforms (the introduction of interim relief is possible).
