1.1.  This appeal concerns the Panel Report, Morocco – Anti-Dumping Measures on Certain Hot‑Rolled Steel from Turkey[1] (Panel Report). The Panel was established on 20 February 2017 to consider complaints by Turkey[2] with respect to the definitive anti‑dumping measures imposed by Morocco on imports of certain hot‑rolled steel products (hot‑rolled steel) from Turkey.[3]

1.2.  Morocco initiated the anti-dumping investigation at issue on 21 January 2013[4], and imposed provisional anti‑dumping duties on the imported products at issue, following the preliminary affirmative determination by the Ministère délégué auprès du Ministre de l'Industrie, du Commerce, de l'Investissement et de l'Économie Numérique chargé du Commerce Extérieur (MDCCE) of dumping, injury, and causation, dated 29 October 2013.[5] On 12 August 2014, the MDCCE published the final affirmative determination of dumping, injury, and causation.[6] The definitive measure came into force on 26 September 2014.[7] The factual aspects of this dispute are set forth in greater detail in section 2 of the Panel Report.
