US Uses Special 301 To Bully Ukraine, Likely Violating WTO | Techdirt

US Uses Special 301 To Bully Ukraine, Likely Violating WTO | Techdirt | wagerseco101 | Scoop.it

In this year's Special 301 report, the United States Trade Representative listed Ukraine as a "Priority Foreign Country" (aka PFC), triggering a 30 day countdown to initiate an investigation under Section 301 of the Trade Act to determine trade sanctions. 19 USC 2412(2)(A).

 

This is only the second time that the U.S. has threatened a WTO-member country with sanctions as a PFC. And thus it is an appropriate time to ask what restrictions the World Trade Organization places on the operation of the Special 301 program.

 

As described more fully below, any sanction of Ukraine, including removal of General System of Preferences (GSP) benefits, would likely violate WTO rules. Indeed, the listing of Ukraine as a PFC, and the more general operation of "watch lists" threatening sanctions for intellectual property matters, could be challenged under the WTO even prior to any sanction actually going into effect.
