On 25 July 2011, the European Union requested consultations with China concerning the imposition of definitive anti-dumping duties on x-ray security inspection equipment from the European Union.

The European Union considers that the measure is inconsistent with China’s obligations under the Anti Dumping Agreement related to the process of investigation (including failure to provide access to relevant information and insufficient explanation of the basis for the determinations) and the determination (absence of objective examination of the effect of the dumped imports on prices in the domestic market and absence of objective determination of causality). The European Union asserts various claims under Articles 2, 3, 6, and 12 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement, and Articles VI:1 and VI:6(a) of the GATT 1994.
