When the Anti-Dumping Commission opens a case, we publish an anti-dumping notice (ADN) on our website. Each ADN invites interested parties to lodge a submission.
Interested parties are those who have an interest in a case and want to make a comment or argument on the public record. Interested parties include:
- trade organisations
We create an electronic public record (EPR) for each case. All information and documents related to a case are published on the EPR.
Preparing a submission
If you are an interested party, you may refute, support, expand upon or reply to matters raised by other parties during the case, or in response to a commission’s report.
You should reference other submissions, or other information on the public record, using:
- the case number
- document number
- title of the EPR
- page number.
We recommend you provide evidence to support your views or assertions.
Your submission should use headings and subheadings for clarity and all pages should be numbered.
Lodging a submission
- You need to lodge your submission in writing (preferred method is email, or the post or fax details listed in the relevant ADN).
- If submitted on behalf of a company or organisation your submission should be on company letterhead, or on the letterhead of your consultant or agent.
- The first page of your submission should include:
- case number, goods and countries involved
- name and contact details of the person and organisation making the submission
- role of the party making the submission (for example, Australian producer, importer, exporter, and so on)
- if submitted by a consultant or agent, the name, contact details and role of the person and organisation lodging the submission, as well as the name, client details and role of the third party/client.
