Korea, US reach mutually agreed solution in large residential washers dispute

The Republic of Korea and the United States announced at a meeting of the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) on 28 April that they have reached a mutually agreed solution to terminate subsequent procedures in “United States — Safeguard measure on imports of large residential washers” (DS546). WTO members considered a request from Indonesia for the establishment of a panel to examine EU countervailing and anti-dumping duties on stainless steel cold-rolled flat products from Indonesia. The EU said it was not in a position to accept Indonesia’s request.
