ANTI-DUMPING MEASURES

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Mesures antidumping

Definition:
Anti-dumping measures can be adopted after an investigation of the importing country, when dumping and material injury resulting therefrom has occurred.

Anti-dumping measures may take the form of anti-dumping duties or of price undertakings. Anti-dumping duties are generally enterprise-specific duties levied on certain goods to offset the dumping margin. Anti-dumping price undertakings may be offered to exporters to avoid the imposition of anti-dumping duties.

Context:
Dumping takes place when a product is exported at less than its normal value, i.e. the comparable price, in the ordinary course of trade, for the like product when consumed in the exporting country.
