Complaint by Turkey.

On 10 April 2003, Turkey requested consultations with South Africa concerning its definitive anti-dumping measures on imports of blanketing in roll form from Turkey. These measures were imposed further to an investigation by the South African Board on Tariffs and Trade (BTT) into the alleged circumvention of anti-dumping duties on blankets originating in or imported from Turkey.

Turkey claims that: (i) the BTT failed to ensure proper notifications; (ii) the establishment of facts was not proper; and (iii) the BTT’s evaluation of these facts was not unbiased and objective, particularly in relation to the initiation and the conduct of the investigation as well as the imposition of the anti-dumping duty.

Turkey claims that South Africa’s measures are in violation of Articles 5.5, 6.1, 6.1.3, 6.2, 6.9, 6.10, 9.2, 9.3 and Article 12.1 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement; and Articles III and X of the GATT 1994.
