July 8 — The U.S. will ask the World Trade Organization to sanction retaliatory trade measures on India for allegedly maintaining a ban on its poultry imports.
India is failing to comply with a 2015 WTO ruling regarding the country's ban on U.S. imports of poultry meat, eggs and live pigs, the U.S. said. That ban on U.S. exports costs U.S. producers more than $300 million per year, according to industry estimates.
The WTO dispute settlement body previously determined that India's ban was not based on international scientific standards, was more trade restrictive than necessary and unfairly discriminated against U.S. imports.
Following the decision, Indian trade officials pledged to comply with the WTO ruling but rather than ending its ban immediately, would instead enter negotiations with the U.S. to determine a sufficient time line for compliance (136 ITD, 7/16/15).
The U.S. will officially seek recourse at the next meeting of the WTO dispute settlement body, scheduled for July 19 in Geneva.
