China Initiates WTO Dispute Complaint Against US Tariffs On Steel, Aluminium Products

China claims the duties of 25% and 10% on imports of steel and aluminium products respectively are inconsistent with provisions of the WTO’s General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 1994 and of the Agreement on Safeguards. The duties have been adopted through a number of legal instruments, including pursuant to Section 232 of the US Trade Expansion Act.

Further information is available in document WT/DS544/1

What is a request for consultations?

The request for consultations formally initiates a dispute in the WTO. Consultations give the parties an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding further with litigation. After 60 days, if consultations have failed to resolve the dispute, the complainant may request adjudication by a panel.
