Trade defence instruments


The EU's commitment to the liberalisation of international trade depends on a level playing field between domestic and foreign producers based on genuine competitive advantages. The European Commission's role in achieving open and fair trade includes the defence of European production against international trade distortions such as subsidisation or dumping, by applying trade defence instruments in compliance with EU law and WTO rules. The Commission monitors the application of these instruments, follows up the enforcement of measures and negotiates future international rules with EU trading partners.
