The US complaint (DS419) also includes a new claim under the China Accession Protocol: China has not made available a translation of the measures at issue into one or more official languages of the WTO. As part of its accession commitments on transparency, China agreed to make such translations available within 90 days of the implementation of any measure affecting trade. Given the sheer number of trade-related measures issued in China on a daily basis, this obligation was bound to be breached. Now it has actually become a target in a WTO complaint!
Does anyone know whether any other acceding country has undertaken a similar translation obligation?
