Argentina — Definitive anti-dumping measures on imports of
ceramic floor tiles from Italy
Argentina informed the DSB that it intended to implement the
findings in this case and that it would need a reasonable period of
time to do so. Argentina said it was currently discussing this issue
with the European Communities. The EC said that, in view of the
multiple violations found by the panel and of the fact that no
legislative act was required to repeal the anti-dumping measures,
Argentina should implement immediately. The EC confirmed that
discussions on this matter were taking place.
A special meeting of the DSB will take place on 10 December 2001.
The next regular meeting of the DSB is scheduled for 18 December 2001
