Complaint by India.

On 5 July 2004, India requested consultations with the European Communities concerning the imposition of definitive anti-dumping measures on imports of certain flat rolled products of iron or non-alloy steel, of a width of 600 mm or more, not clad, plated or coated, in coils, not further worked than hot-rolled (“HR Coils”) from India.

According to the Indian request, the EC violates Article 9.2 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement, which requires that an anti-dumping duty shall be collected on a non-discriminatory basis on imports of the product from all sources found to be dumped and causing injury. India claims that, while anti-dumping measures are in force against imports into the Community of HR Coils from India, no measures are in force against imports of the same product concerned from Egypt, Slovakia and Turkey, notwithstanding that the products imported from the latter three countries were also found by the Commission to be dumped and causing injury to the Community industry.

India also considers that the anti-dumping measures concerned violate certain other provision of the Anti-Dumping Agreement, including, but not limited to the following: Article 3, especially Articles 3.4 and 3.5; and Article 4.1.



On 22 October 2004, India and the European Communities notified the DSB that they had reached an agreement with respect to the matter raised by India in its request for consultations. According to the notification, the European Communities agreed to terminate the measure at issue.
