Safeguard measures

Safeguard measures can be taken when an industry is affected by an unforeseen, sharp and sudden increase of imports of a given product and producers cannot reasonably be expected to adapt immediately to the changed trade situation. It differs from the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy instruments in that it does not deal with unfairly traded imports, thus applying to all countries exporting the product.
