China has notified its decision to appeal the panel report in the case brought by the United States in “China — Additional Duties on Certain Products from the United States” (DS558). The panel report was circulated to WTO members on 16 August. The appeal was circulated to WTO members on 20 September.

Given the ongoing lack of agreement among WTO members regarding the filling of Appellate Body vacancies, there is no Appellate Body Division available at the current time to deal with the appeal.
