 Subject:  Panel of experts on sustainable development provided for in the Free Trade Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Korea
 Answer in writing 

In its resolution of 18 May 2017 on implementation of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the European Union and the Republic of Korea(1), the European Parliament stressed the problems in the implementation by Korea of its binding commitments on sustainable development. It also urged the Commission to launch formal consultations with Korea and, should those fail, convoke the panel of experts provided for in the agreement.

The EU-Korea FTA provides that, on the entry into force of the agreement, the parties shall agree on a list of at least 15 experts from which the panel of experts can be chosen if needed.

1. Does this list exist?

2. What consequences, if any, are foreseen if no agreement is reached on a list of experts?

3. Are there any rules of procedure in place concerning the panel of experts?
