U.S., Japan and EU File Disputes Against China
Tuesday, March 13, 2012 | World Trade Organization

On March 13, 2012, the United States, Japan, and the European Union requested consultations with China under the dispute settlement system concerning the latter’s restrictions on export of various forms of rare earths, tungsten, and molybdenum. 

What is a request for consultations? The request for consultations formally initiates a dispute in the WTO. Consultations give the parties an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding further with litigation. After 60 days, if consultations have failed to resolve the dispute, the complainant may request adjudication by a panel.

Further information will be available within the next few days in documents WT/DS431/1, WT/DS432/1, WT/DS433/1.
