Indonesia imposes a non-automatic import licensing regime for horticultural products pursuant to which an importer must complete multiple steps prior to importing a horticultural product into Indonesia. These steps include, first, an importer must obtain a Horticultural Product Import Recommendation (‘‘RIPH’’) certificate from the Ministry of Agriculture. When issuing the RIPH certificate, the Ministry of Agriculture considers factors such as production and availability of similar products domestically, domestic consumption of the product, and potential of the imported product to distort the market.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 127(b) of the Uruguay Round 
Agreements Act (``URAA'') (19 U.S.C. 3537(b)(1)) requires that notice 
and opportunity for comment be provided after the United States submits 
or receives a request for the establishment of a WTO dispute settlement 
panel. Consistent with this obligation, USTR is providing notice that a 
dispute settlement panel has been requested and established pursuant to 
the WTO Dispute Settlement Understanding (``DSU''). The panel will hold 
its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland.

Major Issues Raised by the United States

    The United States has requested the establishment of a panel to 
consider Indonesia's import restricting measures on the importation of 
horticultural products, animals, and animal products. In particular, 
Indonesia imposes non-automatic import licensing regimes for 
horticultural products and for animals and animal products pursuant to 
which an importer must complete multiple steps prior to importing those 
products into Indonesia. The legal instruments through which Indonesia 
maintains these measures are set out in the panel request.
    Indonesia imposes a non-automatic import licensing regime for 
horticultural products pursuant to which an importer must complete 
multiple steps prior to importing a horticultural product into 
Indonesia. These steps include, first, an importer must obtain a 
Horticultural Product Import Recommendation (``RIPH'') certificate from 
the Ministry of Agriculture. When issuing the RIPH certificate, the 
Ministry of Agriculture considers factors such as production and 
availability of similar products domestically, domestic consumption of 
the product, and potential of the imported product to distort the 
market. Second, an importer must apply to receive a designation as a 
Producer Importer of Horticultural Products or Registered Importer of 
Horticultural Products from the Ministry of Trade. Third, for each 
imported product, the importer must apply to the Minister of Trade for 
an import license by submitting the RIPH certificate and the 
designation.
    Indonesia also imposes a non-automatic import licensing regime and 
quotas for animals and animal products pursuant to which an importer 
must complete multiple steps prior to importing an animal or animal 
product into Indonesia. These steps include, first, importers must 
receive an Import Approval Recommendation (``RPP'') from the Ministry 
of Agriculture to import animals or animal products. After receiving 
the RPP, the importer must then apply for an import license with the 
Ministry of Trade. The Ministry of Trade only allows the importation of 
the product if, among other factors, domestic production and supply of 
the product do not meet ``demand for public consumption at reasonable 
price.''
    Indonesia's government also sets the quotas for animals and animal 
products twice a year, which is enforced through the import licensing 
regime.
    Through these measures, Indonesia appears to have acted 
inconsistently with the following obligations: Articles X:3(a) and XI:1 
of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994; Article 4.2 of the 
Agreement on Agriculture; and Articles 3.2 and 3.3 the Agreement on 
Import Licensing Procedures.
