The EU says it has reviewed the announced US measures and considers that the US maintains a series of subsidies. In its requests for consultations, the European Union says that the actions and events listed by the United States in its 23 September 2012 notification to the DSB (notifying compliance) do not withdraw the subsidies or remove their adverse effects, as required by the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures.
The communication by the EU also says that instead, after the end of the implementation period on 24 September 2012, the United States “maintains specific subsidies that cause present adverse effects to EU interests”. The communication also says that “in the view of the European Union, the United States has failed to achieve compliance with the commendations and rulings of the Dispute Settlement Body (of the WTO)”.
