UNITED STATES – COUNTERVAILING MEASURES ON
SUPERCALENDERED PAPER FROM CANADA
RECOURSE TO ARTICLE 22.6 OF THE DSU BY the United States
The following communication, dated 26 June 2020, from the delegation of the United States to the Chairperson of the Dispute Settlement Body, is circulated pursuant to Article 22.6 of the DSU.
Regarding Canada's recourse to Article 22.2 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes ("DSU") in the dispute United States – Countervailing Measures on Supercalendered Paper from Canada (WT/DS505), my authorities have instructed me to inform you that, pursuant to Article 22.6 of the DSU, the United States objects to the level of suspension of concessions and related obligations proposed by Canada in document WT/DS505/13.
Accordingly, as required by Article 22.6 of the DSU, the matter has been referred to arbitration.
 Canada's request in document WT/DS505/13 does not specify the sector to which the requested suspension of certain tariff concessions and related obligations would apply. Accordingly, any proposed suspension of concessions or obligations in a sector other than the goods sector or under an agreement other than the GATT 1994 would not follow the principles and procedures set forth in Article 22.3 of the DSU
 Pursuant to Article 22.6 of the DSU, "if the Member concerned objects to the level of suspension proposed, ... the matter shall be referred to arbitration."
