EU's recognition of Russia as 'Market economy'

Published: 19 September 2002

Policies & Issues: Trade

As the European Union has announced the recognition of market economy status of Russia, this implies, among other, the amendment of the EC antidumping regulation (reg. EC/384/1996).

In spite of the recent progress in the operating conditions, our industry does still face a number of problems, and we therefore propose a number of specific recommendations with respect to the concepts of 'particular market situation' and 'non cooperation', which we hope you will consider when revising the Regulation.
