Expert Studies & Reports

  • External, independent evaluations of policy or study projects from an acknowledged expert.

  • Risk analysis for exporters – Certain countries are significantly affected by TDI and businesses exporting from such countries should understand the risks. Organizing studies in the common interest can be the most effective way of assisting business to internalize risk in decision making and adopt strategies to minimize such risk.

Training

  • Cliff Stevenson Consulting provides training to government officials on all aspects of anti-dumping and other TDI.
  • In case of AD officials, they are running complex investigations. Training in complex aspects of case e.g. dumping calc, causality, lesser duty rule is greatly needed, particularly when new people come into the job.
  • This includes specialised courses on AD investigation for anti-dumping authorities (e.g. courses previously organised for the Thai and Indian anti-dumping teams).
  • Training courses for EU Member States are also organised (e.g. previous courses prepared for the UK Department of Trade & Industry).
