WTO and export restrictions

As the WTO failed to answer my question on what their position was on export restrictions I had to resort to trawling through their massive website.

This was buried in a press release on accession back in 2008:

"Export restrictions: Upon accession, export bans on nonferrous scrap metal will be eliminated and Ukraine will remove export restrictions on grains, as well as those on precious metals and stones other than gold, silver, and diamonds."
