EU Revises Sanctions to Counter U.S. Byrd Amendment

08 June 2007

The Daily Bugle
The EU has revised the levels of sanctions applied to certain U.S. products in response to the U.S. Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act (Byrd Amendment). The WTO authorised retaliatory sanctions take the form of an additional 15% duty, with 32 new products added to the target list, including paper products, plastic furniture, textile products, pens, footwear and mobile homes. The revision of the EU sanctions is a direct reflection of a rise in payments to U.S. companies made under the Byrd Amendment.
