Exporters and importers sometimes use circumvention as a trade strategy to avoid paying dumping or countervailing duties. You can apply for an anti-circumvention inquiry if you are part of the Australian industry producing like goods to those covered by the measures.
Circumvention activities include:
If you are seeking an inquiry into the avoidance of the intended effect of duty, we suggest you read the Application for anti-circumvention inquiry guidelines [325KB PDF] [233KB DOCX] before submitting your application.
The Australian Border Force (ABF) is responsible for collecting and enforcing anti-dumping measures.
To report any suspicious activities or apparent non-compliance, contact Border Watch.
The Commission, Department of Home Affairs, including the ABF, have agreed to enhance the collaborative working arrangements between them to ensure there is an effective whole-of-government approach to monitoring potential non-compliance and circumvention of anti-dumping measures.
Further information about the ABF’s approach to compliance is available on its website.
