Analytical Note, November 2005

Compilation of proposals submitted on WTO Anti-Dumping negotiations: 2002 to July 2005.

WTO negotiations for the clarification and improvement of the WTO Agreement on Anti-Dumping (ADA) have been long and produced an extremely large number of negotiating material (communications, proposals, informal papers, etc.). The various proposals have concentrated on identifying areas of the ADA that require clarification, justifying improvements by explaining some of the deficiencies of the Agreement, and more recently on actual ways to improve the various provisions of the Agreement (e.g. by suggesting changes in language).

This document presents a thematic compilation of proposals submitted, following the current structure of the Agreement, in other words, following its articles. Proposals are divided in two parts: part one contains the proposal made from 2001 to June 2003 and Part two contains proposals made from 2004 to July 2005. Since the more recent proposals have provided greater details on the type of changes required, further elaborating on earlier proposals, Part two of this note also provides greater detail about the topics discussed.
