represent foreign producers, foreign exporters, and U.S. importers
of goods alleged to violate the antidumping and countervailing duties
laws of the United States.
antidumping law and the countervailing duties law are two primary
trade relief vehicles for domestic industries seeking protection
against foreign imports. The antidumping law addresses injuries
to U.S. businesses caused by international price discrimination
(i.e. goods sold in the U.S. at lower prices then they
are sold for in the home market, or a substitute third-country market).
industries seeking relief file a petition with the U.S. Department
of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC).
Commerce then investigates whether there are sales at less
than fair value ("dumping") pricing issues, and the ITC investigates
whether there is material injury to the U.S. industry. The
course of investigation by Commerce requires the foreign producer
to answer one or more detailed questionnaires.
both agencies reach affirmative conclusions (dumping and injury),
an antidumping or countervailing duties order is put into place.
The order imposes an additional duty on the product from the
particular country in issue to reflect the level of dumping which
an order is put into place, foreign producers who are new, or who
have altered their pricing, may request further review of the antidumping
or countervailing duties decision. An annual review is available
to preexisting foreign producers only on the "anniversary month"
of the order (i.e. on the month that the original order
was issued). New producers or new shippers are allowed to apply
for new shipper reviews twice a year, on either the anniversary
month or six-months thereafter.
an order has been in effect for 5 years, it is automatically removed
by operation of law, unless the domestic industry is able to show
evidence that price discrimination and injury would otherwise continue.
to the complexities of the antidumping and countervailing duties
process, foreign companies often find that recourse to the U.S.
judiciary, a NAFTA panel, or to the World Trade Organization
is desired to redress certain legal issues.
is merely a simplified summary of the antidumping process.
In fact, the antidumping and countervailing duties laws are quite
complex and require careful planning in submission of responses.
We generally advise that, where antidumping issues are concerned
an exporter, foreign producer, U.S. importer or other interested
party retain experienced legal counsel.
