When, in accordance with Article XXIV of ARTICLE XXIV of GATT in 1994, two or more countries have reached a level of integration as they have the characteristics of a single market, it is excluded that, in the whole integration sector, domestic industry should be the national industry covered in paragraph 1. (24) The objective is not to exclude measures under other relevant provisions of the 1994 GATT. An application under paragraph 1 contains evidence (a) dumping, (b) prejudice within the meaning of Article VI of the 1994 GATT in the interpretation of this agreement and (c) a link between dumped imports and the alleged harm. A mere allegation, which is not based on relevant evidence, cannot be considered sufficient to meet the requirements of this paragraph. The application contains the information reasonably available to the applicant on the following: another member may only take specific measures against export dumping in accordance with the provisions of the 1994 GATT, which are interpreted under this agreement. Once the agreement of the companies concerned has been obtained, the investigating authorities should inform the authorities of the exporting member of the names and addresses of the companies to be visited and the dates agreed upon. (19) The term « may » should not be interpreted in such a way that the procedure for implementing price commitments should continue simultaneously, unless provided for in paragraph 4. In order to verify the information provided or to obtain further details, the authorities may, if necessary, carry out investigations on the territory of other members, provided that the companies concerned are obtained and informed by the representatives of the government of the member concerned, unless that member objects to the investigation. The procedures described in Schedule I apply to investigations carried out on the territory of other Members.
Subject to the obligation to protect confidential information, the authorities make the results of these investigations available to the companies to which they belong, or transmit them in accordance with paragraph 9, and may make it available to applicants. The committee reviews the implementation and implementation of this agreement annually, taking into account its objectives. The committee annually informs the Commodity Exchange Council of developments over the period applicable to them. This article does not affect the second additional provision in Article VI, paragraph 1, of Schedule I of GATT 1994. An anti-dumping measure applies only in the circumstances of Article VI of the GATT of 1994 and as a result of investigations opened (1) and conducted in accordance with the provisions of this agreement. The following provisions govern the application of Article VI of the 1994 GATT, to the extent that measures are taken within the framework of anti-dumping provisions or regulations. It should be customary to obtain explicit consent from the companies concerned before the planned participation of the companies concerned in the Export Member State.
