According to an agreement between Thailand and the United States (WT/DS383/6), the "reasonable period of time for implementation" in this anti-dumping case on polyethylene retail carrier bags from Thailand expired on August 18, 2010. At a meeting this week at the WTO, the United States informed the Dispute Settlement Body that it had implemented the rulings. The U.S. Department of Commerce's new determination in the antidumping case went into effect on July 28, 2010. A WTO press release states that the Kingdom of Thailand thanked the United States for its continued cooperation, especially its timely determination. The press release also notes that Thailand said that it would continue to monitor the implementation of this determination.
