written comments concerning the issues raised in this dispute.

dispute settlement proceedings, you should submit your comment on or

the Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the 
instructions for submitting comments in Section III below. The docket 
number USTR-2018-0021. For alternatives to on-line submissions, please

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Assistant General Counsel Ryan Majerus

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    Section 127(b)(1) of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA) (19 
U.S.C. 3537(b)(1)) requires notice and opportunity for comment after 
the United States submits or receives a request for the establishment 
of a WTO dispute settlement panel. Pursuant to this provision, USTR is 
providing notice that Vietnam has requested a dispute settlement panel 
pursuant to the WTO Understanding on Rules Procedures Governing the 
Settlement of Disputes (DSU). The panel established by the WTO will 
hold its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland.

II. Major Issues Raised by Vietnam

    On January 8, 2018, Vietnam requested consultations with the United 
States. You can find the consultation request at www.wto.org in a 
document designated as WT/DS536/1. The United States and Vietnam held 
consultations on March 1, 2018. On June 8, 2018, Vietnam requested the 
WTO to establish a WTO dispute settlement panel regarding the U.S. 
Department of Commerce (DOC) determinations in the following 
antidumping proceedings on Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam:
     Fifth Administrative Review and Fourth New Shipper Review: 
Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (DOC 
investigation number A-552-801).
     Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Sixth Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper 
Review (DOC investigation number A-552-801).
     Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Seventh Antidumping Duty Administrative Review (DOC 
investigation number A-552-801).
    Vietnam's request for establishment of a panel appears to be 
concerned with the alleged use of ``zeroing'', timeliness of a request 
for revocation, applying a Vietnam-wide entity rate based on facts 
available, and Section 129 of the URAA. Vietnam claims that certain 
alleged measures of the United States are not consistent with the 
United States' obligations under Articles 1, 2, 6, 9, 11, and 18 the 
WTO Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the General Agreement 
on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (Antidumping Agreement), Articles VI and XVI 
of the GATT 1994, and Paragraph 1.2 of Part I of the Protocol on the 
Accession of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam (Accession Protocol).

will maintain a docket on this dispute settlement proceeding, docket 
number USTR-2018-0021, accessible to the public at www.regulations.gov.

from other participants in the dispute. If a dispute settlement panel
