At the WTO Dispute Settlement Body meeting on 25 October 2010, the European Union informed the DSB that it intended to implement the recommendations and rulings of the DSB in the "ITA dispute cases." According to the United States, Japan and Chinese Taipei, the European Communities and its Member States now impose duties on certain information technology products contrary to their scheduled duty-free tariff concessions arising from the ITA.
The European Union also informed the DSB that it would need a reasonable period of time to do so. On 20 December 2010, the United States and the European Union informed the DSB that they had agreed that the reasonable period of time for the European Union to implement the recommendations and rulings of the DSB shall be nine months and nine days from the date of the adoption of the recommendations and rulings of the DSB. Accordingly, the reasonable period of time expires on 30 June 2011.
