Consultations

Complaint by the United States.

This request for consultations, dated 19 July 1995, has potentially broader product coverage than the case brought by Canada (WT/DS9) but otherwise concerns much the same issues. On 28 September 1995, the US requested the establishment of a panel to be considered at the meeting of the DSB on 11 October 1995, but the EC objected to it. The US again requested the establishment of a panel to be considered at the meeting of the DSB on 3 December 1996, but later dropped the request at the meeting. On 13 February 1997 the US made a renewed request for the establishment of a panel. At the DSB meeting on 20 March 1997, the US withdrew its request for a panel in this matter. On 26 March 1997, the US made a fresh request for the establishment of a panel.

 

Withdrawal/termination

On 30 April 1997, the US informed the Secretariat that it was withdrawing its request for a panel in view of the fact that the EC had adopted regulations implementing an agreement reached on this matter.
