Complaint by the European Communities.

On 23 September 1998, the EC requested consultations with the Argentina in respect of definitive countervailing duties allegedly imposed by Argentina on imports of wheat gluten from the EC.

The investigation which led to the imposition of these duties had been initiated on 23 October 1996 and, consequently, the EC contended that the investigation exceeded 18 months, contrary to Article 11.11 of the Subsidies Agreement. The EC also claimed a violation of Article 10 of the same Agreement.
