SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: USTR is providing notice that establishment of a dispute settlement panel has been requested pursuant to the WTO Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (‘‘DSU’’). If a dispute settlement panel is established, the panel, which would hold its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland, would be expected to issue a report on its findings and recommendations within nine months after it is established. Major Issues Raised by China In its request for the establishment of a panel, China challenges the additional duties imposed by the United States on certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China pursuant to a Presidential determination and proclamation issued on September 11, 2009 under section 421 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2451). The President’s determination can be found at 74 FR 47433 (September 16, 2009); the proclamation can be found at 74 FR 47861 (September 17, 2009). The related report by the U.S. International Trade Commission issued as part of the investigation can be found at Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People’s Republic of China, Investigation No. TA–421–7, USITC Publication No. 4085 (July 2009). The additional duties took effect on September 26, 2009. The request purports to include any other measures the United States has announced or may announce to implement the President’s determination. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:14 Jan 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 China alleges that the additional duties, not having been justified as emergency action under relevant WTO rules, are inconsistent with Article I:1 of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (‘‘GATT 1994’’), because the United States does not accord to Chinese tires the same treatment it accords to passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China originating in other countries; and with Article II of the GATT 1994, because the higher tariffs consist of unjustified modifications of U.S. concessions. China also alleges that these measures have not been properly justified pursuant to Article XIX of the GATT 1994 and the WTO Agreement on Safeguards. China also alleges that these measures have not been properly justified as China-specific restrictions under the Protocol on the Accession of the People’s Republic of China (Protocol of Accession). Furthermore, China alleges that the U.S. statute authorizing these Chinaspecific restrictions is inconsistent on its face with Article 16 of the Protocol of Accession because, according to China, the statute impermissibly weakens the standard of ‘‘significant cause’’ by imposing a definition of the term that contradicts Article 16.4 of the Protocol of Accession. Finally, China alleges that the restrictions are inconsistent with Articles 16.1, 16.3, 16.4, and 16.6 of the Protocol of Accession.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mar[iacute]a L. Pag[aacute]n, 
Associate General Counsel, Office of the United States Trade 
Representative, 600 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20508, (202) 395-
7305.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: USTR is providing notice that establishment 
of a dispute settlement panel has been requested pursuant to the WTO 
Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of 
Disputes (``DSU''). If a dispute settlement panel is established, the 
panel, which would hold its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland, would be 
expected to issue a report on its findings and recommendations within 
nine months after it is established.

Major Issues Raised by China

    In its request for the establishment of a panel, China challenges 
the additional duties imposed by the United States on certain passenger 
vehicle and light truck tires from China pursuant to a Presidential 
determination and proclamation issued on September 11, 2009 under 
section 421 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2451). The 
President's determination can be found at 74 FR 47433 (September 16, 
2009); the proclamation can be found at 74 FR 47861 (September 17, 
2009). The related report by the U.S. International Trade Commission 
issued as part of the investigation can be found at Certain Passenger 
Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People's Republic of China, 
Investigation No. TA-421-7, USITC Publication No. 4085 (July 2009). The 
additional duties took effect on September 26, 2009. The request 
purports to include any other measures the United States has announced 
or may announce to implement the President's determination.
    China alleges that the additional duties, not having been justified 
as emergency action under relevant WTO rules, are inconsistent with 
Article I:1 of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (``GATT 
1994''), because the United States does not accord to Chinese tires the 
same treatment it accords to passenger vehicle and light truck tires 
from China originating in other countries; and with Article II of the 
GATT 1994, because the higher tariffs consist of unjustified 
modifications of U.S. concessions. China also alleges that these 
measures have not been properly justified pursuant to Article XIX of 
the GATT 1994 and the WTO Agreement on Safeguards. China also alleges 
that these measures have not been properly justified as China-specific 
restrictions under the Protocol on the Accession of the People's 
Republic of China (Protocol of Accession).
    Furthermore, China alleges that the U.S. statute authorizing these 
China-specific restrictions is inconsistent on its face with Article 16 
of the Protocol of Accession because, according to China, the statute 
impermissibly weakens the standard of ``significant cause'' by imposing 
a definition of the term that contradicts Article 16.4 of the Protocol 
of Accession. Finally, China alleges that the restrictions are 
inconsistent with Articles 16.1, 16.3, 16.4, and 16.6 of the Protocol 
of Accession.
