("Use of the GATT Antidumping Code," General Accounting Office, Washington D. 2.) According to the Code, each signatory can legislate and administer its antidumping code, as long as it conforms to GATT standards. so far has ignored the GATT warning, indicating to other countries that the U. In 1986 China had been found to be dumping manhole covers in the U. 133-135.) Even when a foreign company goes to extraordinary lengths to supply information and cooperate fully with the investigation, the Commerce Department still may say that it is insufficient. SKF provided the Department with 150,000 pages of data.

(These standards are explained in Article VI of the GATT Agreement.) As recently as this year, the GATT has found the U. violating the intent of international guidelines to which the laws of signatory countries must conform. S of making it too easy for American enterprises to obtain punitive tariffs against foreign products. S., based on comparisons of costs of producing those items in Belgium, Canada, France, and Japan. This time, the Commerce Department decided to use the Philippine manhole cover industry as its basis for comparison even though the Philippine industry did not use pig iron, a primary ingredient in the Chinese product. But by changing the basis of comparison, a higher dumping margin could be used against the Chinese. In a 1989 case, for instance, SKF of Sweden, a manufacturer of ball bearings, was accused of dumping antifriction bearings into the U. Still not satisfied, the Commerce Department gave SKF only one week to make revisions of several clerical mistakes.

If the information supplied is not satisfactory to Department investigators, they may use production cost estimates by different firms in third countries, even though these costs are not comparable to production costs in the home market. According to the Antidumping Act of that year, for dumping to occur, a "predatory intent" by the exporter must be shown. Several multilateral agreements also have addressed the dumping issue. Government Determines "Dumping"ING" The Investigation Process. 5) If the Department issues a preliminary finding that sufficient evidence of such pricing practices exists, it will direct the U. Customs Service to suspend the importation of the product, or require U. If, however, the ITC finds that there is insufficient evidence, the case is dismissed. Sections 1677b(a)(2), 1677b(b), and 1677b(e).) If the market value of the product cannot be determined either by a home market price or a third country price, the Department will rely on a "constructed value." The constructed value method attempts to establish the exact cost of production of the product in question by using "best available information," which includes financial statements and documents on the product and companies in question. If the company does not provide the information in a specified period of time, the Commerce Department will then look to a third country of similar "level of industrialization" to determine how much "similar" products in that country cost to produce. When it constructs value, the Commerce Department adds an 8 percent profit margin to its calculated production cost to estimate a "fair" sale price in the U. This effectively means that if a foreign company cannot sell its product in the U. for at least an 8 percent profit, it likely will be found guilty of dumping. Among the difficulties: 1) Defining Unfair Prices When no government subsidies are involved, there is no economic case for the claim that selling at below cost is an unfair practice. But the world market today is so integrated and competitive that it is virtually impossible for a company to exploit a dominant share of a market for long, if at all. farmers charge Colombian farmers with dumping, it is assumed that the American farmers are accusing the Colombians of dumping the identical crop to that produced by the Americans. (James Bovard, The Fair Trade Fraud: How Congress Pillages the Consumer and Decimates American Competitiveness" (New York, St. 119; also see Luciano Pisoni Fabbrica Accessori Instrumenti Musicali v. Thus the price of the product sold in Korea appeared higher than it actually was when compared to the U. In order to determine production costs Commerce compared the company with cookware manufacturers in Thailand.

These practices by the Commerce Department routinely result in inaccurate production cost determinations, causing many companies to be found guilty of dumping, even when no such action occurred. The Kennedy Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), held between 19, resulted in the GATT Antidumping Code. steel industry, for example, has received trade protection for almost two decades. As a result, the industry has flooded the Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission with new dumping complaints. government considered 27 dumping complaints, and almost 200 separate dumping orders were, in effect, imposing duties and higher prices on one or more products from 42 different countries. Bars Cheaper Imports," The Washington Times, March 13, 1992, p. Investigation Methods When the Commerce Department attempts to determine when a product is being dumped, it compares the "U. price" with the product's "foreign market value." The U. price is determined by the purchase price when the good enters the U. If a foreign company is willing to accept only a 7 percent profit on a shipment of sweaters, for example, the Commerce Department would find it guilty of dumping those sweaters in the U. The claim of unfairness usually is based on the fear that a business will use so-called predatory pricing to drive out its U. competitors, leaving it to enjoy a monopoly and charge U. Thanks to freer trade in recent decades, there is little chance of an exporter achieving the power to charge a monopoly price. firm is allowed to "dump" in its own market, the practice is not considered unfair. company charges a foreign company with dumping, the Commerce Department assumes that the products in question are similar. The two countries, however, are hardly on the same level of development.

To promote free trade and thus to give consumers full access to the products they want, the Bush Administration should seek the support of Congress to end harmful dumping determinations that artificially raise the prices of certain imports. a good is sold for less than its 'fair value,' generally meaning it is exported for less than it is sold in the domestic market or third country markets or it is sold for less than production cost." (Reference Terms of International Trade, United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, Washington, D. 24.) GATT itself does not establish specific definitions of what constitutes dumping or act against countries that dump; it simply creates the guidelines on which countries can adopt their own laws to prevent dumping. antidumping laws thus have proved to be a more convenient tool to limit competition by denying foreigners access to the U. C.: Institute for International Economics, September 1990), p. C.) And in the first ten months of 1991, the number of new dumping complaints considered by the U. The FMV can be determined in three ways, namely: 1) Home Market Price (19 U. If the price in the home market is more than the U. purchase price, the Department normally finds that dumping has occurred. 127-128.) Even so, the Commerce Department was unable to persuade Thai companies to reveal detailed business information of their companies.

Specifically, it should: Antidumping laws originally sought to prevent foreign exporters from using predatory pricing to undermine American businesses. The code was amended during the Tokyo Round of GATT, held between 1973 to 1979. industries that in the past might have sought trade protection directly from Congress have found this route more difficult as successive GATT rounds have eliminated many forms of direct trade protectionism. So it then used the prosperous countries of France, Norway, and West Germany for comparing production costs with China.

One of the pillars of this "fair trade" approach is a set of so-called antidumping and countervailing duty laws. The antidumping laws are confusing and arbitrary, and in many instances merely allow American firms to secure punitive tariffs against competing importers where no unfair trade practices are involved.
