Complaint by United States (See also DS557, DS558, DS559 and DS560)

On 16 July 2018, the United States requested consultations with Turkey concerning the imposition by Turkey of additional duties with respect to certain products originating in the United States.

The United States claimed that the measures appear to be inconsistent with:

  • Articles I:1, II:1(a) and II:1(b) of the GATT 1994.

On 18 October 2018, the United States requested additional consultations that supplemented its consultations request of 16 July 2018. The United States referred to the amendment of the additional duties measure, through which Turkey increased the rates of duty for 21 out of the 22 tariff lines concerned by the additional duties measure. The United States maintained that Turkey had not imposed the increased rates of duty on any other WTO Member and that such increase in rates of duty further exceed those set out in Turkey's schedule of concessions beyond what was originally imposed.
