AD/CVD Overview: Laws in the United States and many other countries allow a country's domestic manufacturers or producers to allege that the imports of foreign competitors are priced unfairly (called "dumping") or benefiting from unfair subsidies. U.S. anti-dumping and anti-subsidy proceedings are administered by the Commerce Department ("DOC") and the International Trade Commission ("ITC"). Affirmative findings result in duties being imposed. Duty rates can be reviewed and potentially changed if requested by an interested party.
Experience: Over 25 years of experience; freelance consultant since 1998. Industry sectors include steel, food products, manufactured goods, chemicals, and non-ferrous metals.
