Foreign Unfair Competition: Practice and Procedure
Bloomberg BNA Corporate Practice Series
November 2012

International Trade partners Kathy Cannon and John Herrmann have authored the book Foreign Unfair Competition: Practice and Procedure, No. 28-5th in the Bloomberg BNA Corporate Practice Series Portfolio.

The book identifies unfair trade practices and statutory remedies that address those practices. It includes analysis and explanation of extensive changes in those remedies effected by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and the North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act. It examines the countervailing duty, anti-dumping, and injurious import provisions incorporated into the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended through 1998, as well as the retaliatory action, import relief and adjustment assistance, and relief from communist disruption sections of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended through 1998.

In addition, the portfolio discusses problems and requirements of administrative proceedings brought under those statutory provisions and the review of administrative decisions which be available.  The roles of the International Trade Administration, the International Trade Commission, and the United States Trade Representative in statutory investigations and proceedings are also covered.

The portfolio also touches on other statutes applicable to problematic foreign trade practices, such as Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (regarding imports that threaten national security) and the Exon-Florio amendment of Title VII of the Defense Production Act of 1950 (giving the president authority to suspend or prohibit mergers, acquisitions, or takeovers by foreign persons that threaten or impair national security).
