In its request, Korea challenges the provisions of US laws and regulations allowing the US Department of Commerce (USDOC) to use facts available in anti-dumping and countervailing investigations; the USDOC's practice of using adverse facts with regard to producers or exporters deemed to have failed to cooperate in the investigation; and six anti-dumping and countervailing duty determinations on certain products from Korea in which the USDOC relied on adverse facts available.

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.
