WTO agreements

There are about 60 agreements, annexes, decisions and understandings in WTO, which fall into six main parts: an umbrella agreement (the Agreement Establishing WTO); agreements for each of the three broad areas of trade that the WTO covers (goods, services and intellectual property); dispute settlement; and reviews of governments’ trade policies. They also are divided into 3 broad principles: the General Agreement of Tariff and Trade (GATT) (for goods); the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) with their subtopics and Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights.

Besides them, there are also two agreements not signed by all WTO members, which relates to civil aircraft and government procurement.
