GENEVA (Reuters) – A World Trade Organization (WTO) panel on Friday largely upheld a complaint brought by Russia against European Union anti-dumping measures, the third such ruling lost by the bloc.
The panel found that the EU “cost adjustment” methodology for calculating dumping margins in the case violates WTO anti-dumping rules, particularly regarding prices for energy inputs.
But it rejected claims that the EU’s framework anti-dumping regulation, known as “the basic regulation”, breaks WTO rules.
Both sides have 60 days to appeal the decision in the case, brought in December 2016.
