United States – Conditional Tax Incentives for Large Civil Aircraft
Communication from the Panel
The following communication, dated 29 September 2015, was received from the Chairperson of the Panel with the request that it be circulated to the Dispute Settlement Body.
Article 12.9 of the DSU, read in conjunction with Article 4 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, provides that, when a panel considers that it cannot issue its report within 90 days, it shall inform the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) in writing accordingly and indicate the reasons, together with an estimate of the period within which it will issue its report.
The Panel in this matter (WT/DS487) was established by the DSB on 23 February 2015 and composed on 22 April 2015.
The beginning of the Panel's work has been delayed as a result of a lack of available experienced lawyers in the Secretariat. The Panel estimates that it will issue its report within the period of 12 months from today.
