This summary has been prepared by the WTO Secretariat’s Information and External Relations Division to help public understanding about developments in WTO disputes. It is not a legal interpretation of the issues, and it is not intended as a complete account of the issues. These can be found in the reports themselves and in the minutes of the Dispute Settlement Body’s meetings.



DS582 India — Tariff Treatment on Certain Goods in the Information and Communications Technology Sector

The DSB agreed to a request from the European Union and India for additional time for the DSB to consider the adoption of the panel ruling in DS582, which was circulated to WTO members on 17 April. In line with the request, the DSB will now have until 19 September to adopt the panel report unless either the EU or India appeal the panel's findings or the DSB decides by consensus not to adopt the panel ruling.

WTO dispute rules normally require the adoption or appeal of a panel report within 60 days of the report's circulation to members. The EU and India said the additional time would help facilitate the resolution of the dispute.
