The Anti-Dumping Review Panel (Review Panel) reviews certain decisions of the Minister and the Commissioner of the Anti-Dumping Commission (ADC). There are different processes depending on what type of decision is being reviewed.
The review process is governed by strict timeframes set out in Part XVB of the Customs Act 1901.
Reviewable decisions of the Minister are set out in section 269ZZA of the Act.
There are four types of decisions made by the Commissioner which are reviewable, as set out in section 269ZZN of the Act. At any stage of the review process, the Review Panel may ask the applicant to provide further information (s 269ZZQA(4)).

You can view non-confidential versions of applications and submissions received for Ministerial reviews and non-confidential versions of applications received for termination reviews on the current reviews page.
