The common external tariff is only one aspect of the EU’s commercial policy. This Chapter discusses another plank of this policy, namely measures which may be taken by the EU to protect trade, in particular the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties.

Provisions against the dumping of goods by non-Member States have been adopted as part of the common commercial policy. If the export price is below the normal price, the goods are considered to be dumped. If the dumped goods are causing or threatening to cause injury, an anti-dumping duty may be imposed.
