The South African anti-dumping regime has a long way to go when compared to jurisdiction like the United States. Furthermore, consolidation of South Africa's anti-dumping laws into a comprehensive statute preferably incorporating the terminology used in the GATT Antidumping Code, would silence cries that South Africa's anti-dumping regime is excessively protective. However, it would be jurisprudentially unsound to judge a country's compliance with its international obligations solely in terms of its verbatim adoption of the substantive and procedural provisions of an international instrument in its implementing statutes. South Africa is moving rapidly in the direction of making its anti-dumping regime GATT compatible.
