Consultations

Complaint by Tunisia (See also DS555)

On 21 February 2019, Tunisia requested consultations with Morocco concerning definitive anti-dumping duties imposed by Morocco on imports of school exercise books. This is the second consultations request submitted by Tunisia against Morocco on a similar matter (see DS555, concerning provisional anti-dumping duties imposed by Morocco on imports of school exercise books from Tunisia).

Tunisia claimed that the challenged measures appear to be inconsistent with:

  • Articles 1, 2.1, 2.2, 2.2.1, 2.2.1.1, 2.2.2, 2.4, 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5, 4.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.8, 5.10, 6.5, 6.5.1, 6.8, 9, 11, 12.2, 12.2.2, 18.1 and paragraphs 1, 3, 5, and 6 of Annex II of the Anti-Dumping Agreement; and
     
  • Articles II:1(a), II:1(b), VI:1 and VI:6(a) of the GATT 1994.

 

Panel and Appellate Body proceedings

On 19 September 2019, Tunisia requested the establishment of a panel. At its meeting on 30 September 2019, the DSB deferred the establishment of a panel.

At its meeting on 28 October 2019, the DSB established a panel. Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, Japan, the Russian Federation and the United States reserved their third-party rights.
