Tunisia initiates WTO dispute complaint against Moroccan book duties

Content by: World Trade Organization
Tunisia has requested WTO dispute consultations with Morocco regarding anti-dumping duties levied by Morocco on imports of school exercise books originating in Tunisia.

Tunisia alleges that Morocco acted inconsistently with a number of provisions of the WTO's Anti-Dumping Agreement. This is the first dispute proceeding initiated by Tunisia at the WTO.

Further information is available in document WT/DS555/1

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.
