EU Challenges Russian Vehicle Anti-Dumping Duties

The European Union (EU) has filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) against Russia over anti-dumping duties on light commercial vehicles from Germany and Italy.

The duties were imposed on May 14, 2014, by the Eurasian Economic Commission, the regulatory body of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Imports of German vans are taxed at 29.6 percent and the rate for Italian vehicles is 23 percent.

The EU alleges that the measures are inconsistent with Russia's obligations under various articles of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 and the Anti-Dumping Agreement.

Russia and the EU have 60 days to resolve the dispute through bilateral negotiations. If, after this period, a resolution has not been reached, the EU may request adjudication by a panel.

Last year the EU requested WTO intervention in a dispute with Russia over a "recycling fee" levied by Russia on imports of motor vehicles.
