Protect National Industries from Harmful Practices

The Ministry of Economy provides national industries and Emirati manufacturers with protection against injurious practices in international trade. They can file a complaint if they are exposed to any of the harmful practices, whether it is dumping, subsidies, or increased imports. During the complaints submission stage, the Department of Anti-injurious Practices provides technical support to the national industry concerned to fill out the complaint form prepared by the department in accordance with the legal requirements of the WTO agreements – Anti-Dumping Agreement, Anti-subsidy and Countervailing Measures Agreement, and The Agreement on Safeguards.

Complaints Against Harmful Practices in International Trade

The Ministry of Economy studies the complaint and checks it against the legal requirements, such as imposing an anti-dumping fee, a compensatory measure against subsidies, or a preventive measure against an increase in imports. Based on the complaint, the investigation includes examination of evidence and study and analysis of all data provided by all parties involved. Various stages of the investigation take into account the specificity and impact of each type of harmful practice mentioned in the complaint. The investigation procedures and requirements differ according to the complaint - be it related to anti-dumping, allocated subsidies, or prevention of increased imports.
