Use of Zeroing in Antidumping Measures Involving Products from Korea

Key Facts
Short Title:
Respondent:
Dispute Status:

On November 24, 2009, the Republic of Korea (Korea) requested consultations regarding the final and amended determinations and antidumping duty order with respect to stainless steel plate in coils from Korea, the final and amended determinations and antidumping duty order with respect to stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from Korea, and the final determination and antidumping duty order with respect to diamond sawblades and parts thereof from Korea.  Korea challenges what it describes as the use by the Department of Commerce of “the practice of ‘zeroing’ negative dumping margins in calculating overall weighted average margins of dumping” in the investigations in those cases.  Korea claims that the Department of Commerce’s “use of its practice of zeroing” in those investigations is inconsistent with the obligations of the United States under Article VI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (“GATT 1994”), and Articles 1, 2.1, 2.4, 2.4.2, and 5.8 of the Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the GATT 1994
