Chile has moved to create a disputes panel at the World Trade Organisation, opposing Uruguay’s Specific Internal Tax system.


Santiago claims the tax system levies heavier taxes on imported alcohol, (including wines, spirits, beer and mineral waters), than on domestically produced lines.


The tax is based on regular reviews of retail prices, with additional charges being made on imports, which Chile says is illegal discrimination. Santiago also claims the additional charges can unfairly vary from country to country.
