Antidumping Duties, Countervailing Measures and Safeguards

In this area of practice, we provide consultancy to local industries affected by the import of similar products at distorted prices or high growth, which can eventually protect themselves by requesting the imposition of antidumping measures, countervailing measures or safeguards, due to the agreements of the World Trade Organization (WTO) enforced by local laws.

The consulting services provided by Quiroz & Associates usually include a two-step approach: first, a feasibility analysis that assesses whether the case complies with the requirements to request some action. If action is required, the second step involves submitting an application to the National Commission on Price Distortion (Comisión Nacional de Distorsiones de Precios, CNDP) and representing the client in the proceedings.

Quiroz & Associates is one of the few economic consultants with experience in this area and has participated in most of the cases heard by the CNDP in the past decade.
