The research contract was awarded based upon the unique data collection approach utilized through on-line surveys and upon the development of a research partnership network focused on the sectors to be studied. It was this network that was responsible for driving potential survey respondents to the survey site.
Multilateral disciplines are the rules regarding whether or not a subsidy may be provided by a Member.
They are enforced through invocation of the WTO dispute settlement mechanism. Countervailing duties are a unilateral instrument, which may be applied by a Member after an investigation by that Member and a determination that the criteria set forth in the SCM Agreement are satisfied.
Part V establishes the substantive and procedural requirements that must be fulfilled before a Member may apply a countervailing measure against subsidized imports. Part VIII contains special and differential treatment rules for various categories of developing country Members.
Part IX contains transition rules for developed country and former centrally-planned economy Members. Parts X and XI contain dispute settlement and final provisions. The definition contains three basic elements: All three of these elements must be satisfied in order for a subsidy to exist.
Some Members argued that there could be no subsidy unless there was a charge on the public account.

Other Members considered that forms of government intervention that did not involve an expense to the government nevertheless distorted competition and should thus be considered to be subsidies.
The SCM Agreement basically adopted the former approach. The Agreement requires a financial contribution and contains a list of the types of measures that represent a financial contribution, e. In order for a financial contribution to be a subsidy, it must be made by or at the direction of a government or any public body within the territory of a Member.
Thus, the SCM Agreement applies not only to measures of national governments, but also to measures of sub-national governments and of such public bodies as state-owned companies. In some cases, however, the issue of benefit will be more complex.
For example, when does a loan, an equity infusion or the purchase by a government of a good confer a benefit?
In the context of countervailing duties, Article 14 of the SCM Agreement provides some guidance with respect to determining whether certain types of measures confer a benefit. Assuming that a measure is a subsidy within the meaning of the SCM Agreement, it nevertheless is not subject to the SCM Agreement unless it has been specifically provided to an enterprise or industry or group of enterprises or industries.
The basic principle is that a subsidy that distorts the allocation of resources within an economy should be subject to discipline. Where a subsidy is widely available within an economy, such a distortion in the allocation of resources is presumed not to occur. A government targets a particular company or companies for subsidization; Industry-specificity.
A government targets a particular sector or sectors for subsidization. A government targets producers in specified parts of its territory for subsidization.
A government targets export goods or goods using domestic inputs for subsidization. All specific subsidies fall into one of these categories. A detailed list of export subsidies is annexed to the SCM Agreement.
These two categories of subsidies are prohibited because they are designed to directly affect trade and thus are most likely to have adverse effects on the interests of other Members. The scope of these prohibitions is relatively narrow. What is most significant about the new Agreement in this area is the extension of the obligations to developing country Members subject to specified transition rules see section below on special and differential treatmentas well as the creation in Article 4 of the SCM Agreement of a rapid three-month dispute settlement mechanism for complaints regarding prohibited subsidies.
Actionable subsidies are not prohibited. However, they are subject to challenge, either through multilateral dispute settlement or through countervailing action, in the event that they cause adverse effects to the interests of another Member.
There are three types of adverse effects. First, there is injury to a domestic industry caused by subsidized imports in the territory of the complaining Member.
This is the sole basis for countervailing action. Second, there is serious prejudice. Serious prejudice usually arises as a result of adverse effects e. Thus, unlike injury, it can serve as the basis for a complaint related to harm to a Member's export interests.The word polyamorous first appeared in an article by Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart, "A Bouquet of Lovers", published in May in Green Egg Magazine, as "poly-amorous".
