WTO documents, 1995-present Print Page


BISD. [WTO] Basic Instruments and Selected Documents. Geneva: World Trade Organization; Lanham, Md.: Bernan, 2002- (covering 1995-). B1  K4602 .G46
BISD is the official compilation of documents in hardcopy, but it contains only selected documents and is several years behind in publication. The WTO series of BISD starts with 1995. Each volume has an index.

BISD does not contain WTO panel and Appellate Body reports or arbitration awards. For these, BISD refers researchers to the Dispute Settlement Reports co-published by the WTO and Cambridge University Press.
