Third country antidumping actions were envisioned at the very inception of the GATT and yet almost completely neglected by most governments throughout the GATT/WTO history. The requirement for prior approval by multilateral trade institutions became a formidable procedural obstacle for any country seeking third country AD actions. Despite such difficulties, there were only few attempts to effectively employ such actions and several legal arrangements to refine the rules for third country AD actions. This article investigates the origin and historical development concerning third country AD actions and examines their implications for the current WTO system that is congested with numerous FTAs.
