The European Commission said on Friday a World Trade Organisation ruling on the European Union‘s dispute with Russia confirmed the legality of specific EU anti-dumping rules, but raised issues about their practical application.

A WTO panel on Friday largely upheld a complaint brought by Russia against European Union anti-dumping measures, the third such ruling lost by the bloc.

“The Commission takes note of the panel report in the dispute with Russia on the use of cost adjustment in the EU anti-dumping measures,” a Commission spokesperson said.

“The report confirms the legality of specific EU anti-dumping rules under the WTO law, while raising certain issues as regards their practical application,” the spokesperson said.

“We will analyse the detailed reasoning presented in the report and reserve our rights in view of potential further steps in the dispute,” the Commission said.
