The WTO First-Instance Ruling, in Softwood Lumber, on the USA’s Methodology in Anti-Dumping

Industry News

On April 9, 2019, the WTO Dispute Settlement Body issued its Panel Report regarding the United States’ particular use of Differential Pricing Methodology (DPM) in reaching its conclusion that the Canadian softwood lumber industry had been dumping into the United States.

The Report has to do not with the Department of Commerce’s (DOC) findings that Canadian softwood lumber is subsidized (which are subject to other challenges) but with its finding that dumping can be found by applying a particular methodology.
