Antidumping

Any law, regulation, tariff, or other tactic used to prevent dumping, which is the act of exporting a good to a foreign country to capitalize on the price difference. Dumping can result in a handsome profit for the exporter, but it can also damage the importing country's local economy. Governments attempt to counteract the practice by implementing antidumping measures.
