Complaint by the United States.

On 10 July 2000, the US requested consultations with Mexico in respect of Mexico’s 20 October 1999 definitive anti-dumping measure on live swine for slaughter (merchandise classified under tariff classification 0103.92.99 of the General Import Law) exported from the United States, independently from the country or origin, and actions by Mexico in the conduct of the anti-dumping investigation resulting in that measure.

In the view of the US the measures are inconsistent with Mexico’s obligations under Articles 2.2, 2.3, 3, 5.1, 5.6, 7 and 8 of the SPS Agreement; Article 4.2 of the Agriculture Agreement; Articles 2 and 5 of the TBT Agreement; and Articles III:4 and XI:1 of the GATT 1994.
