Opportunity to View Live Closed-Circuit Television Broadcast of the Public Meeting of the Arbitrator on Zeroing
USTR is pleased to announce that the upcoming meeting of the Arbitrator with the parties in the World Trade Organization (WTO) proceeding United States – Laws, Regulations And Methodology for Calculating Dumping Margins ("Zeroing"); Recourse to Article 22.6 of the DSU by the United States (DS294) will be open to public viewing at the WTO in Geneva, Switzerland. This dispute relates to certain U.S. antidumping administrative reviews in which the dumping margin was set to zero if the export price in the United States exceeds the home market price, rather than including the negative value when calculating overall dumping margins.
This meeting will be held to discuss the EU’s request for authorization to retaliate against the United States. At the meeting, the parties will be asked to make opening statements and pose questions or make comments on the other party’s statement. The Arbitrator may also pose questions at the meeting.
The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. CEST, with seats available on a first come, first served basis. In order to attend the meeting, the WTO must receive a completed application form. The form must be completed and submitted by 5:00 p.m. CEST Monday, May 10.
