On February 16, 2012, Viet Nam requested consultations with the United States concerning a number of anti-dumping measures on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Viet Nam. Viet Nam claimed that two administrative reviews, a five-year sunset review, and other U.S. measures are inconsistent with U.S. WTO obligations under Articles I:1, VI:1, VI:2 and X:3(a) of the GATT 1994; Articles 1, 2.1, 2.4, 2.4.2, 6, 9, 11, 17.6(i) and Annex II of the Anti-Dumping Agreement; Article XVI:4 of the WTO Agreement; Articles 3.7, 19.1, 21.1, 21.3 and 21.5 of the DSU; and Viet Nam's Protocol of Accession. On February 27, 2013, the Dispute Settlement Body (“DSB”) established a panel. China, the European Union, Japan, Norway and Thailand reserved their third-party rights. Subsequently, Ecuador reserved its third-party rights. Following the agreement of the parties, the panel was composed on July 12, 2013.
