Dumping occurs when foreign producers sell products in the United States at a cost lower than the sale price and lower than the cost of production in their home market.


Countervailable subsidies occur when producers provide financial assistance, production perks, and the production of specific goods providing benefit to foreign governments. Subsidies can be cash payments, credits against taxes and loans with terms that are not aligned with market conditions. In turn, the products are sold to other markets at a higher rate than the worth of the good, which can be described as a countervailed good.


Disruption caused by unfair foreign pricing and government subsidiaries affects the free flow of goods for Americans in the global marketplace. The International Trade Administration of the Department of Commerce works to enforce compliance, laws, and agreements to protect US domestic businesses. Administration Antidumping and Countervailing Duties (AD/CVD) efforts include understanding trades laws and how they relate to unfair dumping and foreign government subsidies, filing petitions that require an investigation into unfairly traded goods and important, ensuring petitions are compliant and further review public data and information.
