EU COM’s Study on Significant Distortions

Since December 2017 the EU has an alternative method to calculate dumped imports if state interference significantly distorts the economy of the exporting country.

In this case, the Commission will instead will use undistorted benchmarks to determine the ‘normal value’ of the product. This can apply to all WTO Members where significant market distortions are found.

To show that distortions exist, the Commission will examine all evidence in any case, as well as prepare country-specific reports. A report on China has already been published. . You can find the link to the Report on Significant Distortions here.
