COUNCIL
DECISION OF THE COUNCIL ESTABLISHING A STEEL COMMITTEE
(Adopted by the Council at its 475th Meeting on 26th October, 1978)
The Council,
Having regard to the Convention on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development of 14th December, 1960 (hereinafter referred to as the “Convention”) and, in particular, Articles 5(a), 6, 12, 13 and 20 thereof;

C(78)171(Final)
ANNEX
PROBLEMS
1. The world's steel industry is experiencing serious difficulties of both a cyclical and structural nature. These difficulties are widespread and are characterised by:
– persistent excess capacity;
– an exceptionally low level of demand;
– unjustifiably low prices on world markets;
– marked changes in traditional trade patterns;
– major dislocations of labour, frequently in areas already experiencing high unemployment;
– depressed financial performance among producers, which holds down investments needed for modernisation and rationalisation of plants;
– increasing governmental intervention in steel supply and demand, especially with foreign trade.
2. In virtually all major steel-producing nations, steel occupies a central place in the national economy. In a number of major areas, the magnitude of structural problems confronting the steel sector and resultant social and economic implications of the necessary structural adjustments are substantial.
3. The interrelationship of developments in the steel sectors from country to country and the potential that unilateral actions and policies can aggravate the problems of others have become clear. The convergence of cyclical problems among many nations serves to intensify the problems faced by each. There is general recognition that there may well be recurring cyclical difficulties.
OBJECTIVES
4. In view of these difficulties, governments need to work closely together in order to:
– ensure that trade in steel will remain as unrestricted and free of distortion as possible. Restrictive actions should be avoided and, where necessary, strictly limited in scope and time, and in conformity with GATT rules(1);
– encourage reduction of barriers to trade;
– enable governments to act promptly to cope with crisis situations in close consultation with interested trading partners and in conformity with agreed principles;
– facilitate needed structural adaptations that will diminish pressures for trade actions and promote rational allocation of productive resources with the aim of achieving fully competitive enterprises;
– ensure that measures affecting the steel industry are consistent to the extent possible with general economic policies and take into account implications for related industries, including steel-consuming industries;
– avoid encouraging economically unjustified investments while recognising legitimate development needs;
– facilitate multilateral co-operation consistent with the need to maintain competition, to anticipate and, to the extent possible, prevent problems.
COMMITTEE FUNCTIONS
5. The Steel Committee will meet regularly and additionally as required to:
(1) continuously follow national, regional and world supply and demand conditions in steel and closely related industries, including steel-consuming industries, with a view to identifying potential problems and implications and making assessments and forecasts available to all interested parties;
(2) continuously follow the evolution of national, regional and world steel industries with regard to employment, profits, investments, capacity, input costs, productivity, and other aspects of viability and competitiveness;
(3) develop common perspectives regarding emerging problems or concerns in the steel sector and establish, where appropriate, multilateral objectives or guidelines for government policies;
(4) regularly review and assess government policies and actions in the steel sector in the light of the current situation, agreed multilateral objectives and guidelines and the GATT and other relevant international agreements;
(5) identify deficiencies and gaps in existing data needed by the Committee with a view to improving national inputs to the Committee and cross-national comparability of data.
INITIAL COMMITMENTS
6. Participants in the Steel Committee agree to the following multilateral guidelines:
A. With respect to steel crisis trade actions:
1. No actions should be inconsistent with GATT provisions.
2. When actions are necessary they should be as limited and temporary as practicable and appropriate to the causes which led to their introduction.
3. All actions(2) taken by participants should be reported promptly to the Steel Committee and, in conformity with GATT rules, to the GATT. The status and rationale for maintaining such actions should be reported periodically to the Steel Committee. Participants agree to consult on any trade action of interest to another participant.
4. When taking action under domestic law and procedures to deal with serious difficulties of its industry, a participant shall take into account the concerns of trading partners that traditional trade flows established under normal conditions of competition not be severely disrupted.
5. Price guidelines should be in conformity with the international Anti-Dumping Code and are appropriate only during crisis periods of substantial excess capacity in exporting countries, widespread price-cutting by many exporters over many products in the importing market or on world markets, and depressed domestic industry conditions such as low capacity utilisation, profits, sales, investments and employment. Such actions should be expeditiously removed or liberalised as conditions improve.
6. Such price guidelines should neither exceed the lowest normal prices in the supplying country or countries where normal conditions of competition are prevailing, nor exceed the sums of the full costs of production (including overheads) and profit, as determined over a reasonable period of recent time, in the supplying country or countries; delivery costs to the importing market and import duties may be included in the event that price guidelines are established on a delivered basis.
B. Participants in the Steel Committee recall their determination to abstain from destructive competition in official support of export credit; they agree that their policies in the field of export credits for steel plant and equipment will be fully consistent with the Arrangement on Guidelines for Officially Supported Export Credits and contribute to the avoidance of competitive subsidisation of such exports.
C. Participants, recalling the general orientations for adjustment policies adopted as part of the Communiqué of the June 1978 Meeting of the Council at Ministerial Level, agree that domestic policies to sustain steel firms during crisis periods should not shift the burden of adjustment to other countries and thus increase the likelihood of restrictive trade actions by other countries (e.g. by artificially stimulating exports or by artificially displacing imports). Further, as a general rule, domestic measures should not prevent marginal facilities from closing in those instances where the facilities cannot become commercially viable within a reasonable period of time.
D. Participants in the Steel Committee agree to make every effort to provide effective programmes for steel worker re-adaptation away from facilities affected by structural adjustments into alternative employment. To this end, they will periodically exchange information on the effectiveness of policies and programmes to assist steel workers and communities.
E. Any action to restrict trade in steel-making materials should be reported promptly to the Steel Committee and be subject to consultation with affected parties.
INITIAL WORK PROGRAMME
7. With respect to the commitments agreed in this resolution the Steel Committee should promptly undertake an examination of government policies affecting the steel sector in the following areas:
(1) evolution of trade flows and the impact on them of government measures;
(2) guidelines for steel trade actions;
(3) adaptation of production structure through modernisation, closures and reconversions;
(4) re-adaptation of labour;
(5) domestic policies to sustain steel production and stimulate steel demand in times of crisis;
(6) domestic pricing and supply;
(7) government export credits for steel plant and equipment.
The Committee will continue the work initiated in the Ad Hoc Steel Group and may undertake examinations in other areas as deemed appropriate by the participants.

PRILOGA
TEŽAVE
1. Svetovna jeklarska industrija doživlja resne ciklične in strukturne težave. So zelo razširjene, zanje pa so značilni:
– stalni presežek zmogljivosti,
– izjemno majhno povpraševanje,
– neupravičeno nizke cene na svetovnih trgih,
– vidne spremembe tradicionalnih trgovinskih vzorcev,
– večje premestitve dela, pogosto na območjih, na katerih je že visoka brezposelnost,
– slabi finančni rezultati proizvajalcev, ki zavirajo potrebne naložbe v posodobitev in racionalizacijo proizvodnje,
– vse večje vladno poseganje v ponudbo jekla in povpraševanje po njem, zlasti v zunanji trgovini.
2. Jeklo v praktično vseh večjih državah proizvajalkah zaseda osrednje mesto v domačem gospodarstvu. Na številnih večjih območjih imajo strukturne težave v jeklarski industriji ter s tem mogoče družbene in gospodarske posledice zaradi nujnega strukturnega prilagajanja veliko razsežnost.
3. Postalo je jasno, da so dogajanja v jeklarski industriji posameznih držav medsebojno povezana ter da lahko enostransko delovanje in politika še poslabšata položaj drugih. Hkratne ciklične težave v številnih državah še povečujejo težave vsake posamezne države. Velja prepričanje, da se ciklične težave lahko ponavljajo.
CILJI
4. Glede na te težave morajo vlade tesno sodelovati, da:
– zagotavljajo, da bo trgovina z jeklom ostala čim bolj neomejena in neizkrivljena. Omejevanja ne bi smelo biti, vendar kadar je potrebno, bi moralo biti ozko usmerjeno in časovno omejeno ter skladno s pravili GATT(3);
– spodbujajo zmanjševanje ovir v trgovini;
– omogočajo vladam, da se takoj lotijo reševanja kriznih razmer v tesnem sodelovanju z zainteresiranimi trgovinskimi partnerji in po dogovorjenih načelih;
– olajšajo potrebno strukturno prilagajanje, ki bo zmanjšalo pritiske za uvedbo trgovinskih ukrepov in spodbudilo racionalno razporeditev proizvodnih virov za dosego popolnoma konkurenčnih podjetij;
– zagotavljajo, da so ukrepi za jeklarsko industrijo čim skladnejši s splošno gospodarsko politiko in da upoštevajo mogoče posledice za sorodno industrijo, vključno z industrijo porabnikov jekla;
– ne spodbujajo gospodarsko neupravičenih naložb, priznavajo pa upravičene razvojne potrebe;
– olajšajo večstransko sodelovanje in hkrati ohranjajo potrebno konkurenčnost ter da težave predvidijo in jih v največji mogoči meri preprečijo.
NALOGE ODBORA
5. Odbor za jeklo se bo redno sestajal in po potrebi tudi dodatno, da bo:
(1) stalno spremljal razmere v nacionalni, regionalni in svetovni ponudbi in povpraševanju v jeklarski in z njo tesno povezani industriji, vključno z industrijo porabnikov jekla, z namenom ugotavljati mogoče težave in posledice ter pripravljati ocene in napovedi, dostopne vsem zainteresiranim stranem;
(2) stalno spremljal razvoj nacionalne, regionalne in svetovne jeklarske industrije glede na zaposlovanje, dobiček, naložbe, zmogljivosti, vhodne stroške, produktivnost ter druge vidike uspešnosti in konkurenčnosti;
(3) razvijal skupne poglede na nastajajoče težave in zaskrbljenost v jeklarski industriji ter po potrebi začrtal večstranske cilje ali smernice vladnih politik;
(4) redno pregledoval in ocenjeval vladne politike in ukrepe v jeklarskem sektorju z vidika trenutnih razmer, dogovorjenih večstranskih ciljev in smernic ter sporazuma GATT in drugih takih mednarodnih sporazumov;
(5) ugotavljal pomanjkljivosti podatkov, ki jih potrebuje odbor, in razhajanja med njimi, da bi izboljšal prispevek posameznih držav k delovanju odbora in s tem medsebojno primerljivost podatkov.
ZAČETNE ZAVEZE
6. Udeleženke v Odboru za jeklo se strinjajo z naslednjimi večstranskimi smernicami:
A. V zvezi s trgovinskimi ukrepi za rešitev jeklarske krize:
1. Noben ukrep ne sme biti neskladen z določbami GATT.
2. Kadar so potrebni ukrepi, naj bodo čim bolj omejeni in kratkotrajni ter izvedljivi in ustrezni glede na vzroke, ki so privedli do njihove uvedbe.
3. Udeleženke morajo o vseh ukrepih(4) takoj poročati Odboru za jeklo in GATT skladno s pravili GATT. O stanju in smislu ohranjanja takih ukrepov je treba Odboru za jeklo redno poročati. Udeleženke soglašajo, da se bodo posvetovale z drugo udeleženko o vseh trgovinskih ukrepih, ki bi jo zanimali.
4. Udeleženka pri reševanju resnih težav v industriji ob uvajanju ukrepov po notranji zakonodaji in postopkih upošteva zaskrbljenost trgovinskih partnerjev, da bi nastale resne motnje v tradicionalnih trgovinskih tokovih, ki so se oblikovali v normalnih konkurenčnih razmerah.
5. Cenovne smernice morajo biti skladne z mednarodnim Protidampinškim zakonikom in so primerne samo v kriznih obdobjih zaradi presežkov zmogljivosti držav izvoznic, vsesplošnega zniževanja cen mnogih izvoznikov za številne izdelke na uvoznem ali svetovnem trgu ter zaradi slabih razmer v domači industriji, kadar so izraba zmogljivosti, dobiček, prodaja, naložbe in zaposlovanje nizki. Take ukrepe je treba ukiniti ali sprostiti takoj, ko se razmere izboljšajo.
6. Take cenovne smernice ne smejo preseči najnižjih običajnih cen v eni ali več državah dobaviteljicah, v katerih vladajo običajne konkurenčne razmere, ali zneska celotnih proizvodnih stroškov (vključno z režijskimi stroški) in dobička, ugotovljenega v primernem novejšem obdobju v eni ali več državah dobaviteljicah; lahko se vključijo stroški dobave na uvozni trg in uvozne dajatve, če so cenovne smernice pripravljene na pariteti dobavljeno.
B. Udeleženke v Odboru za jeklo so odločene, da se bodo vzdržale uničevalne konkurence v obliki uradnega podpiranja izvoznih kreditov; strinjajo se, da bo njihova politika glede izvoznih kreditov za jeklarne in njihovo opremo popolnoma v skladu z Dogovorom o smernicah za uradno podprte izvozne kredite ter da bo pripomogla k izogibanju konkurenčnega subvencioniranja takih izvoznih poslov.
C. Udeleženke se ob sklicevanju na splošne usmeritve prilagoditvene politike, sprejete kot del sporočila s seje Sveta na ministrski ravni iz junija 1978, strinjajo, da notranje politike za podporo jeklarskim podjetjem v kriznih obdobjih ne smejo preusmeriti bremena prilagajanja na druge države in s tem povečati verjetnost omejevalnih trgovinskih ukrepov drugih držav (npr. z umetnim spodbujanjem izvoza ali umetnim nadomeščanjem uvoza). Notranji ukrepi praviloma tudi ne smejo preprečevati zapiranja podjetij, ki so na robu preživetja, kadar ne morejo postati gospodarsko uspešna v razumnem času.
D. Udeleženke v Odboru za jeklo se strinjajo, da si bodo prizadevale pripraviti učinkovite programe za prilagajanje jeklarskih delavcev za druge zaposlitve zunaj podjetij, ki jih je prizadelo strukturno prilagajanje. Zato si bodo redno izmenjavale informacije o učinkovitosti politik in programov za pomoč jeklarskim delavcem in skupnostim.
E. Vsak ukrep za omejevanje trgovine z materiali za proizvodnjo jekla je treba takoj sporočiti Odboru za jeklo in se o njem posvetovati s prizadetimi stranmi.
ZAČETNI PROGRAM DELA
7. Odbor za jeklo mora v skladu z zavezami, dogovorjenimi v tej resoluciji, takoj pregledati vladne politike za jeklarski sektor na naslednjih področjih:
(1) razvoj trgovinskih tokov in vpliv vladnih ukrepov nanje,
(2) smernice za trgovinske ukrepe v jeklarstvu,
(3) prilagajanje proizvodnih struktur s pomočjo posodabljanja, zapiranja in preoblikovanja,
(4) prilagajanje delovne sile,
(5) notranje politike za ohranitev proizvodnje jekla in spodbujanje povpraševanja po jeklu v kriznih časih,
(6) oblikovanje domačih cen in ponudba,
(7) vladni izvozni krediti za jeklarne in njihovo opremo.
Odbor bo nadaljeval delo, ki ga je začela v ta namen ustanovljena skupina za jeklo, lahko pa proučuje tudi druga področja, če se udeleženkam to zdi primerno.

1. stalne opazovalke
i) letna članarina 5000 EUR velja za nečlanico udeleženko v odboru, ki neposredno poroča Svetu (»glavni odbor«), vključno z njegovimi podrejenimi telesi, naštetimi v vabilu;
ii) letna članarina 1700 EUR za podrejeno telo velja za nečlanice udeleženke, kadar nečlanica ni opazovalka v matičnem glavnem odboru, in največ 5000 EUR za več kot tri podrejena telesa istega odbora;
iii) večji mejni stroški zaradi začetne vključitve opazovalke in zaradi nadaljnjega posebnega dela, povezanega z njo, in sicer v višini, v kateri ti stroški presežejo letno članarino za neko telo;
iv) članarine se bodo samodejno letno povečevale v višini uradne francoske stopnje inflacije za prejšnje koledarsko leto. Dobljene številke bodo zaokrožene na najbližjo stotico;
