ANTIDUMPING LAWS AND PRACTICES OF THE NEW USERS

Junji Nakagawa

More and more Members of the WTO are using anti-dumping (AD) measures as an effective tool for protecting domestic industries facing competition with foreign products. In contrast to the ‘big four’ (US, EC, Canada and Australia), which have been using AD measures frequently since the GATT era, many of the new users established their AD regimes and began to use them after the establishment of the WTO.

Why are there more and more new users? How are they applying AD measures? Do they comply with the rules of the WTO Anti- Dumping Agreement? What are their specific characteristics in the handling of AD cases? What should exporters and practitioners do to prepare for AD investigations by the new users? Based on extensive analyses of primary materials and hearings from practitioners and AD authorities, this book provides detailed and updated information to answer these questions on the following new users:

China, Chinese Taipei, Korea, Thailand, India, South Africa, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil
