WTO NEWS

THE GOVERNMENT HAS APPROVED THE REGULATION ON PROTECTION OF UKRAINE'S RIGHTS AND INTERESTS IN TRADE AND ECONOMIC FIELD WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION

On 1 June 2016 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, approved the "Regulation of Protection of Ukraine's Rights and Interests in Trade and Economic Field within the Framework of the World Trade Organization" (the "Regulation")1 by the Decree No. 346. The Regulation defines, inter alia, the rules and procedures on protection of the rights and interests of Ukrainian companies in the framework of the World Trade Organization (the "WTO") dispute settlement system throughout all stages starting from consultations to implementation of the recommendations or rulings of the WTO dispute settlement body (the "WTO DSB").

The Regulation expressly provides for the right of Ukrainian interested bodies and organizations (including the public authorities, the enterprises, institutions and organizations irrespectively of their form of ownership, as well as the representatives thereof) to apply to the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine (the "Ministry") if another WTO Member State violates the WTO covered agreements In this case the affected body/organization may submit to the Ministry the respective statement outlining the circumstances of identified trade restrictions.

If the Ministry considers that there is a violation of the WTO covered agreements, it takes the decision to establish the interdepartmental working group, in which representatives of affected Ukrainian companies may participate, and which shall directly manage initiation and maintenance of a dispute.

Moreover, the state bodies and foreign diplomatic missions of Ukraine shall monitor the trade barriers applied by the WTO members with respect to Ukraine. Having the relevant violations been detected, the Ministry shall be notified within five business days in order to subsequently initiate the relevant procedures and address the violations2.

Just to remind: in the 20 years since the WTO was established, more than 500 disputes have been brought to the WTO. Moreover, according to the statistics, the average dispute covers 162 claims challenging 22 restrictive measures. At the moment, 102 of 162 WTO Members (63%) have participated in the WTO dispute settlement system. A large number of disputes resolved under the auspices the WTO as well as the active position of the states are caused by significant business interest behind each WTO dispute. Therefore, the Regulation is of great practical importance for the business, since it not only eliminates the obstacles to the protection of interests of domestic producers from trade barriers by virtue of the WTO mechanisms, but also regulates the mechanism of interaction between the state authorities and business. Moreover, it provides for the confidentiality warranties as to sensitive information, provided for by business in terms of such procedures.

ON 18 MAY THE OFFICIAL PROCEDURE OF ACCESSION OF UKRAINE TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION AGREEMENT ON GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT WAS COMPLETED

On 18 May 2016, the official procedure of accession of Ukraine to the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (the "GPA") was completed. From that date, Ukrainian companies are entitled to participate in government procurement of 45 Member States of the GPA, which, in particular, include: the EU member states, Japan, the USA, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Canada. Thus, the Ukrainian companies gain access to the WTO government procurement market, the total volume of which is estimated at 1.7 trillion US dollars annually, which in more than 30 times exceeds the volume of Ukrainian export in 2014.

The GPA is founded and functions on the basis of the key WTO principle – non-discrimination and equal access to markets. Thus, the foreigners will be granted full access to Ukrainian state tenders, as well as the Ukrainians – to foreign state tenders.

As from the beginning of 2016, the Ministry has been conducting active explanatory work with business representatives regarding the possibilities available within the framework of the GPA. Furthermore, as from January, the Ministry has launched the pioneering project supporting Ukrainian companies, which are planning to participate in a foreign tender for the first time3.

UKRAINE URGES THE MEMBER STATES OF THE EURASIAN ECONOMIC UNION TO STOP SYSTEMATIC VIOLATIONS OF THE WTO RULES IN TERMS OF ANTI-DUMPING INVESTIGATIONS

From 25th to 28th April 2016, the meetings of the WTO Committees on trade measures were held at the WTO Secretariat, where the Ukrainian delegation paid particular attention to the meeting of the WTO Committee on anti-dumping practices. Ukraine took advantage of the opportunity to raise a number of important matters regarding the conduct of anti-dumping investigations by the Eurasian Economic Union (the "EAEU"), the four members whereof are the WTO Members, namely Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russian Federation.

Ukraine drew the attention of the WTO Member States to systematic violation by the EAEU of the WTO rules in terms of anti-dumping investigations, leading to the imposition of legally and economically unjustified restrictions on the access to markets of five countries (including Belarus) for Ukrainian goods. In particular, the Ukrainian delegation reported that the anti-dumping investigations concerning the import in the EAEU customs territory of bars, ferrosilicon manganese and steel tubes originating in Ukraine were conducted in violation of the WTO Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the GATT, and the GATT itself. In terms of the meeting the representatives of the EAEU Member States provided no explanations regarding matters raised by Ukraine, and informed that written responses would be submitted at the nearest time.

Moreover, in terms of the meeting Ukraine appealed to Pakistan regarding the anti-dumping investigation concerning cold rolled stock, originating, in particular, in Ukraine, emphasizing unlawfulness of Pakistan's provisional anti-dumping measures. Furthermore, in terms of the work of the WTO Committee on safeguard measures, the Ukraine's delegation addressed to the Republic of India a series of questions concerning the conduct of the safeguard investigations and their non-compliance with the focal provisions of the WTO agreements, requesting India to cancel the restrictions imposed and forgo the application of safeguard measures based not on facts, but on calculation of forecasted indicators4.

This gives us an overall picture of our user profiles, which in turn shows to our Editorial Contributors the type of person they are reaching by posting articles on Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) – meaning more free content for registered users.

We are only able to provide the material on the Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) site free to site visitors because we can pass on information about the pages that users are viewing and the personal information users provide to us (e.g. email addresses) to reputable contributing firms such as law firms who author those pages. We do not sell or rent information to anyone else other than the authors of those pages, who may change from time to time. Should you wish us not to disclose your details to any of these parties, please tick the box above or tick the box marked "Opt out of Registration Information Disclosure" on the Your Profile page. We and our author organisations may only contact you via email or other means if you allow us to do so. Users can opt out of contact when they register on the site, or send an email to unsubscribe@mondaq.com with “no disclosure” in the subject heading

Mondaq News Alerts

In order to receive Mondaq News Alerts, users have to complete a separate registration form. This is a personalised service where users choose regions and topics of interest and we send it only to those users who have requested it. Users can stop receiving these Alerts by going to the Mondaq News Alerts page and deselecting all interest areas. In the same way users can amend their personal preferences to add or remove subject areas.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file written to a user’s hard drive that contains an identifying user number. The cookies do not contain any personal information about users. We use the cookie so users do not have to log in every time they use the service and the cookie will automatically expire if you do not visit the Mondaq website (or its affiliate sites) for 12 months. We also use the cookie to personalise a user's experience of the site (for example to show information specific to a user's region). As the Mondaq sites are fully personalised and cookies are essential to its core technology the site will function unpredictably with browsers that do not support cookies - or where cookies are disabled (in these circumstances we advise you to attempt to locate the information you require elsewhere on the web). However if you are concerned about the presence of a Mondaq cookie on your machine you can also choose to expire the cookie immediately (remove it) by selecting the 'Log Off' menu option as the last thing you do when you use the site.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies and we are not aware of any at present that do so.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Mondaq (or its affiliate sites) are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of these third party sites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose any information requested. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and delivery address), and demographic information (such as postcode, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the functionality of the site.

Mail-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. Mondaq stores this information and may contact the friend to invite them to register with Mondaq, but they will not be contacted more than once. The friend may contact Mondaq to request the removal of this information from our database.

Security

This website takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected using firewalls and other security technology. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to webmaster@mondaq.com.

Correcting/Updating Personal Information

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as postcode), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavour to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the “Your Profile” page or by sending an email to EditorialAdvisor@mondaq.com.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our Terms & Conditions or Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on our site so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
