Link to Dispute Site:

On May 17, 2023, Argentina requested consultations with the United States with respect to (i) the definitive anti-dumping measure imposed on oil country tubular goods(OCTG) from Argentina, and (ii) certain provisions of the United States' legislation regarding cross-cumulation of imports in assessing injury caused by imports in anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations.

Argentina claimed that the definitive anti-dumping measure on OCTG from Argentina appears to be inconsistent with:

•    Articles 1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 5.1, 5.3, 5.4, 6.6, and 18.1 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement; and

•    Article VI of the GATT 1994.

Argentina also claimed that the United States' legislation regarding cumulation for determining material injury appears to be inconsistent “as such” with Articles 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, and 3.5 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement.

On September 1, 2023, Argentina requested the establishment of a panel. At its meeting on September 19, 2023, the DSB deferred the establishment of a panel.

At its meeting on October 26, 2023, the DSB established a panel. Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, Japan, Korea, Russia, Türkiye, and Ukraine reserved their third-party rights.

Following the agreement of the parties, the panel was composed on January 7, 2024.
