Dumping is defined in the Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the GATT 1994 (the Agreement) as the introduction of a product into the commerce of another country at less than its normal value. Under the Agreement, WTO Members can impose anti-dumping measures, if after investigation in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement, a determination is made

‘that dumping is occurring, that the domestic industry producing the like product in the importing country is suffering material injury, and that there is a causal link between the two.’

In addition to substantive rules governing the determination of dumping, injury and causal link, the Agreement sets forth detailed procedural rules for the initiation and conduct of investigations, the imposition of measures, the duration and review of measures.
