Anti-dumping Investigation: Calculation of the Dumping Margin


Background/Objectives: Studying product dumped import practices is topical as it is vital to defend the Eurasian Economic Union common market from unfair competition on behalf of the exporting foreign companies. Method: The system analysis enables to study in an integrated manner such significant component of a dumping triad as the dumping margin and particularly, to develop a certain method to compare normal value of a product with its export price, as well to offer different ways of calculating the absolute amount and relative value (rate) of the margin assisted by the introduced business practices, such as breakeven model, etc. Findings: Main results of the research allow concluding that three major ways to calculate the dumping margin are possible regarding the supply of goods: a) based on export prices formed in purchase and sale conditions in a domestic market of an exporting foreign state (union of foreign states) at a normal course of trade; b) based on current prices at which goods are supplied from an exporting country to the third countries; в) based on export prices formed in the countries with a transition (or non-market) economy where an absolute (or partial) state foreign trade monopoly takes place. In addition, using asymmetrical comparison method of normal value of goods and their export prices in the course of exercising the so-called targeted dumping it becomes possible for the antidumping authorities to zero out those foreign trade operations without dumped import practices, which purposely increases both the rate and the relative value of the margin, thus raising the total value of the duty. Improvements: These findings can be of practical value for the manufacturers in the EEU member-states when preparing declaration regarding the use of anti-dumping measures against similar product importation into the Eurasian single customs territory at dumping prices.
