South Korea can impose annual trade sanctions of $84.81 million on the United States after challenging U.S. anti-dumping and anti-subsidy tariffs on washing machines, a World Trade Organization arbitration panel ruled on Friday.

The sum was much less than the $711 million that South Korea had asked for, but the arbitration ruling also provided a sanctions formula for South Korea to apply in the future, in case the United States imposes similar tariffs on other products in breach of the WTO rules.
