The two main weapons used to stop imports have historically been the antidumping (AD) and anti-subsidy or countervailing duty (CVD) laws. Based on a newly-proposed rule by the Department of Commerce (DOC) -- the U.S. government agency that administers the AD and CVD laws -- if your company is a domestic producer that wants to stop imports because they are dumped or subsidized, DOC is making it much easier for domestic companies to receive relief. If, however, your company is or could be on the receiving end of an AD or CVD case, the chance that your company will individually have an AD or CVD case terminated will be reduced dramatically if DOC implements its proposed rule.
