Anti-dumping proceedings, non-tariff trade barriers, areadopted by governments to protect domestic industries by driving out foreign products.
Quite a few Chinese products have hadantidumping actions filed against them by the U.S. Department of Commerce. At the same time, a new Anti-dumping regulation promulgated by the State Council of China took effect on January 1, 2002, which allows the Chinese government to protect Chinese industries from severe dumping actions by aforeign country.
Generally there are three factors that contribute to a "dumping" charge:dumping, injury, and causation. In practice, each factor requires facts, data, and analyses for support. Moreover, since both China and the U.S. are WTO member countries, their anti-dumping practices must conform to their obligations under the relevant WTO document. Therefore, anti-dumping practices become even more complicated under the WTO legal framework.
