Dumping is said to occur when goods are exported by one country to another

country at a price lower than the normal value of the goods. 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.
Article 1 of the Anti- dumping Agreement establishes the basic principle that WTO
Members can impose anti-dumping measures, if, after investigation in accordance
with the Agreement, a determination is made:
(a) that dumping is occurring,
(b) that the domestic industry producing the like product in the importing country is
suffering material injury, and
(c) that there is a causal link between the two.
