Harvard Journal of International Law. Under monopoly, it is true that marginal cost is equal to marginal revenue. If a Member, in its administration of anti-dumping duties, imposes duties lower than the margin of dumping when these are sufficient to remove injury, the period of provisional measures is generally six months, with a possible extension to nine months at the request of exporters. However, a finding of injury to the regional industry is only allowed if 1 there is a concentration of dumped imports into the market served by the regional industry, and 2 dumped imports are causing injury to the producers of all or almost all of the production within that market.
