Complaint by Costa Rica.

On 17 January 2000, Costa Rica requested consultations with Trinidad and Tobago in respect of Legal Notice No. 237 of the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Trinidad and Tobago, pursuant to which provisional anti-dumping duties are imposed on the importation of macaroni and spaghetti from Costa Rica, the actions preceding that decision (see WT/DS185) as well as the 1992 Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act of 1992, as amended by the Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties (Amendment) Act of 1995 and the Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties Regulations of 1996. Costa Rica claimed that these measures are inconsistent particularly with certain paragraphs of Articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 18 as well as Annex I and II of the Anti-Dumping Agreement.
