Consultations

Complaint by Singapore.

On 10 January 1995, Singapore requested consultations with Malaysia regarding the prohibition of imports of polyethylene and polypropylene instituted and maintained by the Malaysian Government under the Customs (Prohibition of Imports) (Amendments) (No. 5) Order 1994 dated 16 March 1994.  On 16 March 1995, Singapore requested the establishment of a panel.  At its meeting on 29 March 1995, the DSB deferred the establishment of a panel.  At its meeting on 10 April 1995, Singapore decided not to request the establishment of a panel at that meeting but was not in a position to withdraw its complaint.

 

Withdrawal/termination

At the DSB meeting on 19 July 1995, Singapore announced that it had decided to withdraw its complaint completely.
