"Decisions which may be challenged before the Tribunal do not have to be individual in nature. That they may also be general is plain from Article VII, paragraph 2, of the Statute of the Tribunal [...] but a complaint against a general decision will not perforce on that account be receivable. There is also the rule in Article VII(1) of the Statute that the internal means of redress must have been exhausted."
