The arbitration procedure has been implemented in accordance with Article 22.6 of the Dispute Rules and Procedures Agreement (DSU) (i.e. if the Member concerned objects to the amount of the proposed stay or asserts that the principles and procedures set out in [Article 22.3] have not been complied with…, the case is referred to arbitration) and Article 7.10 of the SCM Convention (i.e. ”In the event that, Where a disputing party requests arbitration under Article 22(6) of the DSU, the arbitrator shall determine whether the counter-measures are proportionate to the scale and nature of the adverse effects found. `it is reasonable to assume that, otherwise, Airbus would have received in the five relevant sales campaigns the same number of firm orders in its sales contracts as Boeing would have secured in its actual sales contracts; In the view of the European Union, this is explained by the fact that the negative effects of R & D 2004-2006 are among the negative effects found in the circumstances of this procedure within the meaning of Article 7.10 of the SCM Convention. The disputed questions of law required the arbitrator (i) to consider the role of Article 7.10 of the SCM Agreement in arbitration proceedings under Article 22.6 of the DSU and (ii) that adverse effects first identified in a compliance relationship prior to arbitration could be included in the proposed level of countermeasures. Article 3 of the agreement prohibits the use of local content and export subsidies for non-agricultural products. Least developed countries (and other countries with a per capita GNI of less than $1,000 in constant $1990 dollars) are exempt from the export subsidy ban (Article 27(2) and Annex VII of the Agreement and paragraph 10.1 of the Doha Ministerial Decision on Implementation Issues and Concerns (WT/MIN(01)/17). (a) having regard to Article 7.10 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures (SCM) and Article 22.6 of the Dispute Settlement Agreement (DSU), the volume of countermeasures corresponding to the magnitude and nature of the adverse effects found is USD 3,993,212,564 per year; and, therefore, in accordance with its terms of reference in accordance with Article 7.10 of the SCM Convention, the Arbitrator stated that the magnitude of the remedies was proportionate to the scale and nature of the adverse effects found, that he would use the following general methods to assess the adverse effects found in the compliance proceedings: the State of Washington having lifted this tax reduction earlier this year, the EU has no valid basis for retaliating against US products. Any imposition of tariffs on the basis of a measure that has been eliminated is clearly contrary to WTO principles and will impose a US response, he added.
In view of the above, the Compliance Body concluded that by continuing to violate Article 5(c) and Article 6(3)(a), (b) and (c) of the Subsidies Agreement, the United States has breached the recommendations and decisions of the DSB and, in particular, the obligation set out in Article 7(8) of the Subsidies Agreement, take appropriate measures to eliminate the adverse effects or withdraw the subsidy. In a press release on 13 October, Valdis Dombrovskis, Commissioner for Trade, said the long-awaited decision allowed the European Union to impose tariffs on US products entering Europe. I would prefer not to, the additional tariffs are not in the economic interest of both sides, especially as we strive to recover from the Covid 19 recession. The body and the Appellate Body found in the main proceedings that certain measures taken by the United States, including subfederal measures, constituted subsidies specific to the US FTAA industry and were inconsistent with the subsidy agreement. . . .
