Complaint by Ukraine (See also DS569 and DS570)

On 19 September 2017, Ukraine requested consultations with Kazakhstan with respect to anti-dumping measures applied to certain types of steel pipes on the customs territory of Kazakhstan.

Ukraine claimed that the measures appear to be inconsistent with:

  • Articles 3.1, 3.4, 3.5, 5.2, 5.3, 6.1, 6.2, 6.8, 8.3, 11.1, 11.3, 12.2 and paragraphs 3 and 6 of Annex II of the Anti-Dumping Agreement; and
  • Article VI of the GATT 1994.

On 6 October 2017, the Russian Federation requested to join the consultations. Subsequently, Kazakhstan informed the DSB that it had accepted the Russian Federation's request to join the consultations. On 19 October 2017, Ukraine informed the DSB of certain concerns regarding the Russian Federation's request to join consultations, which was submitted beyond the 10-day deadline provided in Article 4.11.

On 7 September 2018, Ukraine supplemented its consultations request of 19 September 2017. Ukraine referred to Kazakhstan's failure to implement the findings of the investigating authority in the interim review of the anti-dumping duties on steel pipes, initiated in October 2017, concluding that such duties should be decreased.
