Dispute Settlement  
Chapter 10 Dispute Settlement

The ANZSCEP sets out a robust process for consultation or settlement of disputes between the 2 countries.

Each Party shall accord adequate opportunity for consultations. If the consultations fail to settle a dispute within 60 days after the date of receipt of the request for consultations, the Party which made the request for consultations may make a written request to the other Party to appoint an arbitral tribunal.

The Party concerned shall comply with the arbitral tribunal's rulings or findings within a reasonable time period. The reasonable period of time shall be mutually determined by the Parties and shall not exceed 12 months from the date of the arbitral tribunal's report.
