Complaint by Korea.

This request, dated 10 July 1997, is in respect of the imposition of anti-dumping duties by the US on imports of colour television receivers (CTVs) from Korea. Korea contends that the US has for the past twelve years maintained an anti-dumping order for Samsung’s CTVs despite the absence of dumping and the cessation of exports from Korea, without examining the necessity of continuing to impose such duties. Korea contends that the US actions violate Articles VI.1 and VI.6(a) of GATT 1994, and Articles 1, 2, 3.1, 3.2, 3.6, 4.1, 5.4, 5.8, 5.10, 11.1 and 11.2 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement. On 6 November 1997, Korea requested the establishment of a panel. On 5 January 1998, Korea informed the DSB that it was withdrawing its request for a panel but reserving its right to reintroduce the request.



At the DSB meeting on 22 September 1998, Korea announced that it was definitively withdrawing the request for a panel because the imposition of anti-dumping duties had now been revoked.
