After measures are imposed

Applying for the continuation of measures

Anti-dumping measures expire after five years. You can apply to continue the anti-dumping measures if you are either:

  • the original applicant for the measures
  • representing the whole or a portion of the Australian industry producing like goods to those covered by the measures.

At least 9 months before the measures expire, we will publish a notice inviting applications to continue the measures. If we haven’t received your application within 60 days of this notice being published the anti-dumping measure will expire on the specified expiry date.

Read the guidelines before submitting your application

Applying for a review of measures

If you believe levels of dumping or subsidies have changed since measures were imposed or last reviewed, you can apply to have the measures reviewed or revoked. 

If you want to apply for a review of anti-dumping measures you can do this 12 months after publication of the original notice imposing measures, or the outcome of the last review.
