Meti: Japan Requests the Establishment of a Panel under the WTO Agreement Regarding China’s Measure Imposing Anti-Dumping Duties on Stainless Steel Products Originating from Japan


On August 19, 2021, Japan requested the establishment of a panel under the WTO Agreement regarding China’s measure imposing anti-dumping duties on stainless steel products.

In July 2019, China started imposing anti-dumping (AD) duties (hereinafter referred to as the “AD measure”) on stainless steel products imported from Japan, the Republic of Korea, Indonesia, and the EU, claiming that its domestic industry was being injured by the dumped imports of such products. (The AD measure is scheduled to be in place for five years.)

Japan considers the AD measure to be inconsistent with the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (the WTO Anti-dumping Agreement) due to flaws in the Chinese authorities’ determination and its investigation procedures.

Japan will pursue an appropriate solution on this issue in accordance with the rules under the WTO Agreement.
