Canada - Measures Governing the Sale of Wine

Request for the Establishment of a Panel by AUSTRALIA

The following communication, dated 13 August 2018, from the delegation of Australia to the Chairperson of the Dispute Settlement Body, is circulated pursuant to Article 6.2 of the DSU.

 

_______________

 

 

On 12 January 2018, the Government of Australia (Australia) requested consultations with the Government of Canada (Canada) pursuant to Articles 1 and 4 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes ("DSU"), and Article XXII:1 of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 ("GATT 1994"), with regard to measures maintained by the Canadian Government and the Canadian provincial Governments of British Columbia ("BC"), Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia governing the sale of wine as it appeared that a range of distribution, licensing and sales measures such as product mark-ups, market access and listing policies, as well as duties and taxes on wine applied at the federal and provincial level discriminated, either directly or indirectly against imported wine. Australia and Canada held consultations on 1 March 2018, but unfortunately those consultations were unsuccessful in resolving this dispute.
