  • Bown, Chad P. (2009) “The Pattern of Antidumping and Other Types of Contingent Protection,” World Bank, PREM Notes No. 144, 21 October.
    Executive Summary | Data 
  • Erratum - Due to late posting to the Colombian government website, this report counted one too few antidumping initiations and one too few antidumping measures imposed by Colombia in 3Q 2009

    Missing initiation:
    Colombia AD China Iron or Steel Tubes and Pipes 08/21/2009

    Missing measure:
    Colombia AD China Hoes/Digging Bars/Picks 07/29/2009

Public release of Global Antidumping Database version 5.1 

  • Detailed raw data through 3Q 2009 for twenty-five antidumping-using countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, EU, India, Jamaica, Mexico, New Zealand, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Urugauy, USA, and Venezuela). According to data from the WTO, for all member economies that still “control” use of their own trade policies in 2009 – i.e., subtracting out newly acceded member states to the EC that used AD prior to their EC accession - these 25 Members initiated over 90% all antidumping investigations by the WTO membership during 1995-2008.

    • No new 3Q data updates because no national government website updating for the following countries: Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand (thus 2Q 2009 is their most recent data)
    • New AD countries with detailed data added for the first time to v5.1: Ecuador, Jamaica, Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay
  • We also have detailed data through 3Q 2009 for fourteen countervailing duty-using countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, European Union, India, Mexico, Peru, Turkey, United States, Venezuela), in addition to all global safeguards and China-specific safeguards notifications that have made been to the WTO.

    • New CVD countries with detailed data added for the first time to v5.1: China, Venezuela

  • Data Caveats:
    • South Africa's latest semi-annual report to the WTO shows an AD imposition on ZAF-AD-285. However, as of October 2009 the South African government website shows a final affirmative decision but also its withdrawal at a later date.
    • Korea's latest semi-annual report shows AD measures on KOR-AD-139 and KOR-AD-140. However, as of October 2009 there is no updated information to reflect this on the Korean government website.
