The imposition of anti-dumping duties is probably the most common as well as the most drastic measure taken to protect EU industries from allegedly uncompetitive trading practices of third countries. When a third country itself intervenes in international competition by using export subsidies, anti-dumping duties may - in accordance with the WTO subsidy agreement - be imposed on imports from this country.

We advise affected companies and associations on anti-dumping and anti-subsidy proceedings, in particular regarding 

  • Applications and contacts with the European Commission or national agencies;
  • Investigative proceedings and "on-spot" visits in third countries by European Commission or OLAF representatives;
  • The filing of statements and the completion of the questionnaire;
  • Hearings before the European Commission;
  • Proceedings concerning the extension of anti-dumping duties due to alleged anti-circumvention, scope reviews as well as expiry reviews;
  • Appeals of European Commission decisions, in particular concerning the imposition of preliminary or definite anti-dumping measures;
  • Filings of objections against import duty notifications


1:1. This is how we work together. You decide upon a competent partner; he/she will then remain your point of contact. > more
