Ukraine files appeal in dispute with Russia over railway equipment import restrictions
WTO

Ukraine filed an appeal on 27 August concerning the WTO panel report in the case brought by Ukraine in "Russia — Measures Affecting the Importation of Railway Equipment and Parts thereof" (DS499). 

The panel circulated its report on 30 July 2018.

Ukraine challenged Russia's application of its conformity assessment procedures for railway products to suppliers from Ukraine of rolling stock, railroad switches and other railroad equipment (railway products).

The WTO panel concluded that Ukraine did not establish that Russia applied its conformity assessment procedure in a manner that granted Ukrainian suppliers of railway products access under conditions less favourable than those granted to Russian and European suppliers of like railway products.
