If ignored, trade remedy investigations can lead to substantial duties being imposed on the affected U.S. exports, and the potential loss of lucrative export markets. If your company is facing a foreign government’s trade remedy investigation, contact the Trade Remedy Compliance Staff at (202) 482-3415 or TRCS@trade.gov.

WTO Trade Remedy Agreements


Antidumping Measures

If a company exports a product at a price lower than the price it normally charges in its home market, it is said to be “dumping” the product. The WTO Antidumping Agreement disciplines how governments can or cannot react to dumping by imposing an ‘antidumping’ measure.

Countervailing Measures

The WTO Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures disciplines WTO members’ use of subsidies and how governments can or cannot react to subsidies provided by governments to companies and industries by imposing a ‘countervailing’ measure on subsidized imports found to be injuring domestic producers.

Safeguard Measures

WTO members can impose safeguard measures to protect domestic industries being seriously injured by increased imports. The WTO Safeguard Agreement provides the rules for applying a safeguard measure.
