Fair Value and the GATT Policy Negotiations

In relation to the GATT Policy Negotiations, Christopher Mark (1993) provided the following explanation and/or definition of Fair Value: The benchmark against which selling prices of imported merchandise are compared in adumping investigation. In US practice, fair value is generally expressed as the weighted average of the exporter's home market prices or prices to third countries during the period of investigation. In some cases it is the “constructed value” –a derived figure used if there are few home-market or third-country sales of the product in question, or if the number of such sales made at prices above the cost of production is so few that they provide an inadequate basis for comparison. See also dumping margin.
