Anti-dumping and countervailing duties
The EU Anti-Dumping and Anti-Subsidies Regulation provides
for the imposition of anti-dumping or countervailing duties in line
with the GATT Anti-Dumping Code when a formal investigation
has found that:
– dumping or subsidization is taking or has taken place,
– such dumping or subsidization is causing or threatening
material damage to an industry segment in the EU, and
– the imposition of such duties is in the interest of the EU.
If all of these requirements are fulflled, the EU Commission may
impose duties equivalent to the value of the dumping margin or
the subsidy in question.
Alternatively, it may accept a voluntary
declaration by the private party or the country involved that the
dumping or subsidization will be discontinued.
