Definitive AD measures on beef and rice.


The US raised several claims related to the injury determination, the conduct of the investigation and due process, use of facts available, disclosure and public notice. The Panel exercised judicial economy on some claims and accepted all others; the AB only reversed two Panel’s findings.

The US and Mexico agreed on two deadlines for implementation of the DSB ruling: (1) 20 August 2006 for revising the dumping and injury determinations and (2) 20 December 2005 for amending certain aspects of the Mexican legislation.

Mexico lifted the AD duties on US rice exporters on 11 September 2006 and completed the amendment of its legislation in December 2006.

On 16 January 2007, Mexico and the US agreed on a "sequencing agreement" preserving US rights to impose retaliation against Mexico, should it conclude that actions taken by Mexico are insufficient.
