Canada files WTO complaint over US trade remedy measures

Canada files WTO complaint over US trade remedy measures

Canada has requested WTO consultations with the United States concerning certain laws, regulations and other measures maintained by the US with respect to anti-dumping and countervailing duty proceedings. The request was circulated to WTO members on 10 January.

Canada considers the measures relating to US anti-dumping or countervailing duty investigations, reviews or other proceedings are inconsistent with US obligations under the WTO's Anti-Dumping Agreement, the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 and the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes.
