Yet, it chose to create its own governing body outside the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other existing international institutions or fora, such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) or the United Nations (UN). The reason for this was that the existing international institutions were thought not to provide procedures that were sufficiently flexible to accommodate the attainment of a fast and effective result. The criticism was that this was achieved to a considerable extent at the expense of transparency.
