French Equivalent: Mesure compensatoire

Definition:
Countervailing measures are measures that can be undertaken whenever an investigation, by the investigating authority of the importing country, has led to the determination that the imported goods are benefiting from subsidies, and that they result in an injury.

Countervailing measures may take the form of countervailing duties or undertakings by the exporting firms or by the authorities of the subsidising country.
