Pages 18

The Safeguards Agreement, unlike the Antidumping Agreement, has a preamble. The preamble to the Agreement states one of the objectives of the Agreement as follows:

[T]o clarify and reinforce the disciplines of GATT 1994, and specifically those of its Article XIX (Emergency Action on Imports of Particular Products), to re-establish multilateral control over safeguards and eliminate measures that escape such control.
