US Anti Dumping Measures Notified on Week 19 (4 May - 10 May 2020)

If a company exports a product at a price lower than the price it normally charges on its own home market, it is said to be “dumping” the product.

Is this unfair competition?

Opinions differ, but many governments take action against dumping in order to defend their domestic industries.

How to deal with dumping

WTO agreement allow governments to act against dumping where there is a genuine (“material”) injury to the competing domestic industry. In order to do that the government has to be able to show that dumping is taking place, calculate the extent of dumping (how much lower the export price is compared to the exporter’s home market price), and show that the dumping is causing injury or threatening to do so.
