On 14 June 2012, the CJEU determined in Case C- 533/10 (CIVAD) that the unlawfulness of a Regulation cannot be considered a case of force majeure, and as a result the extension of the 3-year limit during which an importer can request the repayment of import duties is not permitted. The Court also found that national customs authorities cannot, on their own initiative, repay anti-dumping duties that were collected pursuant to an anti-dumping regulation that was found by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body to be in violation of the WTO Agreement.
