The measures challenged by Indonesia are: certain provisions of November 2009 on anti-dumping measures on imports from non EU member countries concerning the determination of normal value in anti-dumping investigations; and, anti-dumping duties on imports of biodiesel originating in inter alia Indonesia, imposed in May 2013 (provisional duties) and November 2013 (definitive duties).
Indonesia claims that these measures are inconsistent with the EU's obligations under the Anti-Dumping Agreement.
Argentina has challenged in a separate case (DS473) one of the provisions also challenged by Indonesia (that of November 2009), as well as the same anti-dumping measures imposed by the EU on imports of biodiesel. A panel was established on 25 April 2014 to consider Argentina's complaint, although this panel has not been composed yet.

What is a request for consultations?
The request for consultations formally initiates a dispute in the WTO. Consultations give the parties an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding further with litigation. After 60 days, if consultations have failed to resolve the dispute, the complainant may request adjudication by a panel.
