Consistent with this obligation, USTR is providing notice that Indonesia has requested the establishment of a dispute settlement panel pursuant to the WTO Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (‘‘DSU’’). The panel was established pursuant to the DSU on July 20, 2010, and is expected to hold its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland, and to issue a report on its findings and recommendations within nine months after the date of its establishment. ADDRESSES: For the Commission by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.10 Florence E. Harmon, Deputy Secretary. WTO Dispute Settlement Proceeding Regarding United States—Measures Affecting the Production and Sale of Clove Cigarettes [FR Doc. 2010–20182 Filed 8–13–10; 8:45 am] AGENCY: Major Issues Raised by Indonesia The Office of the United States Trade Representative (‘‘USTR’’) is providing notice that on June 10, 2010, the United States received a request from the Republic of Indonesia (‘‘Indonesia’’) for the establishment of a dispute settlement panel under the Marrakesh Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization (‘‘WTO Agreement’’) regarding a provision of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Pub. L. 111–31). That request may be found at http:// www.wto.org in a document designated as WT/DS406/2. USTR invites written comments from the public concerning the issues raised in this dispute. DATES: Although USTR will accept any comments received during the course of the dispute settlement proceedings, comments should be submitted on or before September 15, 2010 to be assured of timely consideration by USTR. In its request for establishment of a panel, Indonesia challenges a provision of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Pub. L. 111–31) (the ‘‘Act’’). Among other things, the Act amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act by adding a new Section 907. Section 907 bans sales of all flavored cigarettes, other than tobacco or menthol flavors, wherever they are produced, beginning 90 days after the legislation was signed into law (September 20, 2009). Indonesia states that it considers Section 907 to be inconsistent with the obligations of the United States under Article III:4 and Article XX of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994, and Articles 2.1, 2.2, 2.5, 2.8, 2.9, 2.10, 2.12, and 12.3 of the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade. Indonesia further states that if the United States should assert that the measure at issue is an SPS measure, then it is Indonesia’s view that the measure is inconsistent with Articles 2, 3, 5, and 7 of the Agreement on the Office of the United States Trade Representative. ACTION: Notice; request for comments.
