Anti Dumping Measures : FAQs 14th March, 2014
Dumping is said to occur when the goods are exported by a country to another country at a price
lower than its normal value. This is an unfair trade practice which can have a distortive effect on
international trade. Anti dumping is a measure to rectify the situation arising out of the dumping of
goods and its trade distortive effect. Thus, the purpose of anti dumping duty is to rectify the trade
distortive effect of dumping and re-establish fair trade. The use of anti dumping measure as an
instrument of fair competition is permitted by the WTO. In fact, anti dumping is an instrument for
ensuring fair trade and is not a measure of protection per se for the domestic industry. It provides relief
to the domestic industry against the injury caused by dumping.
