Antidumping Petition

A request by an American industry to the appropriate government agency requesting an investigation into potential dumping. Dumping is the act of exporting a good to a foreign country to capitalize on the price difference. This can cause harm to the domestic industry, especially in the short term. An antidumping petition starts an investigation that could result in the imposition of an antidumping duty to counterbalance the dumping.
