Abstract

The latest Appellate Body Report continues the assault through WTO dispute settlement on the practice of 'zeroing' in anti-dumping proceedings. The US - Zeroing (Japan) dispute may put an end to zeroing in most contexts, even in the recalcitrant United States, which continues to decry the Appellate Body's interpretations regarding this issue, with some reason. The zeroing line of cases also reflects a growing tension between negotiation and litigation, and Panels and the Appellate Body.

Keywords: WTO, Dispute settlement, 'zeroing', anti-dumping proceedings
