[[Page 19729]]

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 established pursuant to the WTO 
Dispute Settlement Understanding (``DSU''). The panel will hold its 
meetings in Geneva, Switzerland.

Major Issues Raised by Korea

    On July 18, 2014, the Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') 
published in the Federal Register notice of its final affirmative less-
than-fair-value determination in the antidumping investigation 
concerning oil country tubular goods from Korea (79 FR 41983). On 
September 10, 2014, Commerce published the antidumping duty order (79 
FR 53691).
    In its request for the establishment of a panel, Korea challenges 
Commerce's calculation of the constructed value profit rate for the 
Korean respondents in the antidumping investigation of oil country 
tubular goods from Korea. Korea alleges inconsistencies with Articles 
2.2, 2.2.2, and 2.4 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement. Korea also makes 
certain procedural claims with respect to Commerce's calculation of the 
constructed value profit rate, alleging inconsistencies with Articles 
6.2, 6.4, 6.9, and 12.2.2 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement, and Articles I 
and X:3 of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994.
    Korea also challenges Commerce's use of downstream sale prices and 
costs based on an affiliated supplier's books and records for the 
Korean respondent NEXTEEL. Korea alleges inconsistencies with Articles 
2.3 and 2.2.1.1 of the Anti-Dumping Agreement. In addition, Korea 
challenges Commerce's decision to select two mandatory respondents as 
inconsistent with Article 6.10, including Articles 6.10.1 and 6.10.2 of 
the Anti-Dumping Agreement.
    Finally, Korea challenges ``as such'' Commerce's use of an alleged 
methodology to determine whether a respondent's third-country sales are 
viable for the purposes of calculating normal value. Korea also 
challenges Commerce's application of this alleged methodology in the 
determinations at issue in Korea's request for the establishment of a 
panel. Korea alleges inconsistencies with Article 2.2 of the Anti-
Dumping Agreement.
