South Korea wins WTO appeal on Fukushima seafood ban

South Korea wins WTO appeal on Fukushima seafood ban | 12 April 2019 | The World Trade Organization has upheld South Korean's ban on seafood from areas affected by Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, overturning a lower panel's ruling last year. The Appellate Body on Thursday reversed the February 2018 decision deeming the restrictions to "arbitrarily and unjustifiably discriminate against Japanese products." Appeals rulings are final once formally adopted. South Korea banned seafood imports from eight Japanese prefectures after the March 2011 disaster, including Fukushima and Iwate, over radiation concerns.
