EU appeals panel report on EU dumping methodologies, duties on Russian imports

On 28 August, the European Union notified the Dispute Settlement Body of its decision to appeal the panel report in the case brought by the Russian Federation in “European Union — Cost Adjustment Methodologies and Certain Anti-Dumping Measures on Imports from Russia — (Second complaint)” (DS494).

Given the ongoing lack of agreement among WTO Members regarding the filling of Appellate Body vacancies, there is no Appellate Body Division available at the current time to deal with the appeal.
