Overview

1    What is the main domestic legislation as regards trade remedies?

The legal basis for trade defence instruments (TDI) (ie, anti-dumping (AD), countervailing (CV) and safeguards (SG)) is the founding Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union of 29 May 2014 between the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation as amended upon accessions of the Republic of Armenia and the Kyrgyz Republic (EAEU Treaty) and, specifically, Annex 8 thereof, which contains Protocol No. 8 on Application of Safeguards, Anti-dumping and Countervailing Measures in Respect of Third Countries (TDI Protocol). A number of secondary acts of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC or Commission) regulate specific aspects of TDIs, including confidentiality matters, internal decision-making procedures and methodological materials for domestic producers aiming to facilitate the preparation of complaints. The EAEU Treaty and the secondary acts are available at the EAEU Law Portal (all materials are in Russian, while selected acts are also translated into Armenian, Belarusian, Kazakh and Kyrgyz languages) at docs.eaeunion.org/en-us/.
