An anti-dumping measure is an additional duty on dumped imports that have injured Australian industry.
A countervailing measure is an additional duty on subsidised imports that have injured Australian industry.
These measures (duties) are imposed by the minister on the recommendation of the commissioner.

Material injury and causation
We can only recommend measures if material injury has been caused by dumped or subsidised imports.
Material injury to Australian industry can include:
- loss of sales, profits, market share and productivity
- negative impacts to prices, cash flow, inventories, and employment.
The injury must be greater than what normally occurs in the normal ebb and flow of business.
To decide if the imports have caused material injury, we examine the volume and price of the imports and their effect on Australian producers of like goods.
We cannot recommend measures to address injury caused by something other than dumped or subsidised imports.
