Supporting Tables for commitments on agricultural subsidization

These tables provide background information on data and methodology used by countries in deriving their commitments on domestic support and export subsidies. They include detailed information on the provision of domestic support and export subsidies during the agreed years (i.e., the base period). For example, details can be found in these tables on

  • support exempt from reduction commitments (e.g. Green Box)
  • aggregate measures of support (AMS, sometimes called the Amber Box) overall and for specific products, including  the data  on  AMS support that did not exceed the prescribed minimum threshold in terms of value of production (i.e. the de minimis)
  • provision of export subsidies subject to reduction commitments

 

The documents containing the tables of supporting material are generally referred to as the AGST Supporting Tables and are specifically noted in the “Schedules” (or lists) containing domestic support and export subsidy reduction commitments.  For Uruguay Round participants, the supporting tables were prepared based — in practice — on a document negotiated in the Uruguay Round but never formally agreed: Modalities for the Establishment of Specific Binding Commitments under the Reform Programme.  Supporting material submitted in the context of accessions is prepared using the guidance contained in WT/ACC/4.

The WTO compilations in the series G/AG/AGST/ were circulated in five volumes and contained the AGST Supporting Tables submitted by countries during the Uruguay Round as well as in the context of accessions.  The agricultural supporting tables of acceded Members are now routinely circulated in the WT/ACC/ or WT/ACC/SPEC/ documents series and are referenced as such in Sections I (domestic support) and II (export subsidies) of Part IV of the Schedules.  The information contained in the supporting tables is used, as appropriate, by Members in their notifications of current measures.
