China - Definitive Anti-Dumping Duties on X-Ray Security Inspection Equipment from the European Union

Report of the Panel

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, pursuant to China's Ministry of Commerce Notice No. 1(2011), including its Annex. The European Union claims that the measure is inconsistent with various provisions of the Anti–Dumping Agreement related to the process of the anti-dumping investigation (including failure to provide access to relevant information and insufficient explanation of the basis for the determinations) as well as the anti–dumping determination at issue (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 considers that the measure is inconsistent with Articles 2.4, 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5, 6.1, 6.2. 6.4, 6.5, 6.9, 12.2.2 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement, and Articles VI:1 and VI:6(a) of the GATT 1994.
