Japan - Measures Affecting Consumer Photographic Film and Paper

Report of the Panel

On 13 June 1996, the United States requested consultations with Japan concerning Japan’s laws, regulations and requirements affecting the distribution, offering for sale and internal sale of imported consumer photographic film and paper. The US alleged that: the Japanese Government treated imported film and paper less favourably through these measures, in violation of GATT Articles III and X. These measures nullify or impair benefits accruing to the US (a non-violation claim).
