European Union AND CERTAIN MEMBER STATES – Certain Measures Concerning
Palm Oil and Oil Palm Crop-based Biofuels

Request for Consultations by MALAYSIA

The following communication, dated 15 January 2021, from the delegation of Malaysia to the delegations of the European Union, France and Lithuania, is circulated to the Dispute Settlement Body in accordance with Article 4.4 of the DSU.





My authorities have instructed me to request consultations with the European Union, as well as France and Lithuania, pursuant to Article 4 of the DSU, Article XXII of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 ('GATT 1994'), Article 14 of the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade ('TBT Agreement') and Article 30 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures ('SCM Agreement'), regarding certain measures imposed by the EU and EU Member States affecting palm oil and oil palm crop-based biofuels from Malaysia.

Malaysia considers that these measures are inconsistent with the obligations of the EU and the EU Member States concerned under the GATT 1994, the TBT Agreement, and the SCM Agreement.
