Complaint by the United States.

On 4 September 1997, the US requested consultations with Mexico in respect of an anti-dumping investigation of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from the United States conducted by Mexico, resulting in a preliminary determination of dumping and injury, and the consequent imposition of provisional measures on imports of HCFS from the United States. The US alleged violations of Articles 5.5, 6.1.3, 6.2, 6.4 and 6.5 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement.

On 8 May 1998, the US requested consultations in respect of the same anti-dumping investigation which had resulted in the imposition of definitive anti-dumping measures on these imports from the United States. See WT/DS132 and WT/DS132/RW.
