What is AD/CVD?

If you're an importer, it's more important than ever to be aware of anti-dumping duties (ADD) and countervailing duties (CVD).

At a high level, dumping occurs when foreign companies can produce items at a lower price than those items would sell domestically, or below cost of production. Countervailable subsidies are a subset of financial assistance provided by a foreign government to aid production and exportation of goods for lower cost.

Visit our AD/CVD resource page to learn more.
