82 As a result, if the principle of issue estoppel were applied also before a WTO panel, then a WTO panel could preclude a SADC member from bringing, for example, a safeguards claim at the WTO in case substantively the same claim was previously decided upon by a SADC panel, as between the same parties. A WTO panel could also apply the principle of issue estoppel to the determination of specific facts or the legal characterization of facts by the previous SADC panel (or vice versa). The US doctrine of collateral estoppel could even go further and give res judicata effect also to a previous SADC panel finding on the same issue even if that panel was constituted at the request of another SADC member, different from the one now challenging the same measure at the WTO, in the event the former SADC member had ‘adequate opportunity to be heard’ before the original SADC panel.
