WTO Panels Established to Rule on US Subsidy Duties on Pipe Imports from Turkey

Posted by: Time:2017.06.27 01:13

At its meeting on 19 June, the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) agreed to the establishment of two new dispute panels: one to review a complaint filed by Turkey against US countervailing duties on imports of Turkish steel pipes and tubes; and the second to review Colombia’s compliance with an earlier WTO ruling regarding tariffs on imports of textiles, apparel and footwear from Panama.

United States — Countervailing Measures on Certain Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey

Turkey referred to its statement at the previous DSB meeting on 22 May 2017 and requested for a second time that the DSB establish a panel to examine its complaint regarding the US countervailing measures on imports of Turkish pipe and tube products.

The United States said that it was disappointed with Turkey’s request for a panel. It had explained to Turkey that the determinations identified in Turkey’s panel request were fully consistent with WTO rules. Turkey sought to challenge certain alleged practices which were not measures within the scope of a dispute settlement proceeding, the United States added.

The DSB agreed to establish a panel. Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, the Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia reserved their third party rights to participate in the panel proceedings.
