A panel of experts will be convened next month to determine whether Seoul violated its free trade agreement with the European Union by postponing approvals of key international conventions on workers’ rights.

The South Korean Ministry of Employment and Labor said on Tuesday that verbal reviews by an experts’ panel will be held via videoconferencing for two days from October 8 as part of the dispute settlement process on the trade and sustainable development chapter of the South Korea-EU FTA.

Initially, the two sides planned to hold a review session at the World Trade Organization’s headquarters in Switzerland in April, but it had been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
