on Large Residential Washers from Korea
Status Report regarding implementation of the
dsb recommendations and rulings
by the United States
The following communication, dated 18 June 2020, from the delegation of the United States to the Chairperson of the Dispute Settlement Body, is circulated pursuant to Article 21.6 of the DSU.
The United States submits this report in accordance with Article 21.6 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes ("DSU").
On September 26, 2016, the Dispute Settlement Body ("DSB") adopted its recommendations in United States – Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Measures on Large Residential Washers from Korea (WT/DS464). At the following DSB meeting, on October 26, 2016, the United States informed the DSB of its intention to implement the recommendations of the DSB in connection with this matter. Korea requested that the reasonable period of time for the United States to implement the recommendations of the DSB be determined through arbitration pursuant to Article 21.3(c) of the DSU. The Arbitrator determined the reasonable period of time to be 15 months, expiring on December 26, 2017.
On May 6, 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce published a notice in the U.S. Federal Register announcing the revocation of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of large residential washers from Korea (84 Fed. Reg. 19,763 (May 6, 2019)). With this action, the United States has completed implementation of the DSB recommendations concerning those antidumping and countervailing duty orders.
The United States continues to consult with interested parties on options to address the recommendations of the DSB relating to other measures challenged in this dispute.
