Domestic Content Requirements

On February 6, 2013, the United States requested consultations with India concerning certain measures of India relating to domestic content requirements under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (“NSM”) for solar cells and solar modules. The United States claims that the measures appear to be inconsistent with:

•Article III:4 of the GATT 1994;

•Article 2.1 of the TRIMs Agreement; and

•Articles 3.1(b), 3.2, 5(c), 6.3(a) and (c), and 25 of the SCM Agreement.
