Complaint by the European Communities.

On 15 January 1997, the EC requested consultations with Japan in respect of certain measures affecting imports of pork and its processed products imposed by Japan. The EC contended that these measures are in violation of Japan’s obligations under Articles I, X:3 and XIII of the GATT 1994. The EC also contended that these measures nullify or impair benefits accruing to it under the GATT 1994.
