EU requests WTO Panel on Chinese Anti-Dumping duties on Steel Tubes
EU News 369/2013
Brussels, 16 August 2013
The European Union today requested the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in Geneva to rule over a dispute concerning Chinese anti-dumping duties imposed on imports of high-performance stainless steel seamless tubes (“HP-SSST”) from the EU.
The EU believes the Chinese anti-dumping duties are incompatible with WTO law, both on procedural and on substantive grounds. At the EU’s request, consultations were held on 17 and 18 July 2013 to resolve the dispute. However, they did not satisfy the EU's concerns about the WTO-incompatibility of the Chinese measures.
