Taking into account the current workload of the Appellate Body, the People's Republic of China and Japan would like to request the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) to adopt the draft decision attached to this letter with respect to the dispute China — Measures Imposing Anti-Dumping Duties on High-Performance Stainless Steel Seamless Tubes ("HP-SSST") from Japan (WT/DS454).  We consider that the draft DSB decision, if adopted, would provide greater flexibility in scheduling any possible appeal of the panel report in this dispute, which was circulated to WTO Members on 13 February 2015. Attached to the letter you will also find the text of the confirmed procedures between the parties to the dispute.

 

We would be grateful if you could circulate this notification including its attachments to the Members of the DSB.
