Canada Initiates WTO Dispute Proceedings On US Softwood Lumber Duties

Canada considers the US anti-dumping and countervailing measures to be inconsistent with provisions of the WTO’s Agreement on Anti-dumping, the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994. 

Further information is available in documents WT/DS533/1 and WT/DS534/1

What is a request for consultations?

The request for consultations formally initiates a dispute in the WTO. Consultations give the parties an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding further with litigation. After 60 days, if consultations have failed to resolve the dispute, the complainant may request adjudication by a panel.
