    Paving the Way for Unfair Competition

    The Imposition of EU Anti-Dumping Duties on Ceramic Tiles from China

    Rapporten analyserar EU:s antidumpningstullar på importen av kakel från Kina ur ett kritiskt perspektiv. Analysen visar att EU:s antidumpningsförordning måste förändras på flera avgörande punkter om syftet med antidumpningsåtgärder ska vara att främja en effektiv konkurrens. Om ingen förändring av regelverket sker bidrar antidumpningstullarna endast till att främja en orättvis konkurrens där EU:s egen tillverkningsindustri gynnas till de europeiska konsumenternas nackdel.

    The EU’s and the US’s Preferential Arrangements

    – a Comparison

    Various studies have shown how the cost of compliance with rules of origin often outweighs the benefits of the tariff preferences. The report "The impact of Rules of Origin on Trade" summarises existing literature which confirms that rules of origin often act as a barrier to trade by having negative effects on both utilisation of preferences and trade flows.

    Survey of e-commerce barriers within the EU

    20 examples of trade barriers in the digital internal market

    According to the Eurobarometer, 33 percent of consumers purchase products online within the EU, but only 7 percent do this across borders. There are several reasons for this level of fragmentation in the market, such as a low level of confidence in the Internet, a low level of broadband provision, deficient interoperability, cultural differences (with regard to language, payment methods, customer behaviour patterns) and barriers of a legal nature. In this report, the Board has focused on the last category. We highlight examples that demonstrate the legal barriers that companies face when they wish to expand their operations into other EU countries.

The market has become increasingly global which has affected international trade and international dependence. This report describes how Sweden’s dependence on trade has been altered.

    E-invoicing in cross-border trade

    The transition from paper invoices to e-invoices is an example of how new technology can improve and rationalise previous manual and lengthy procedures. The purpose of the study is to give a description of precisely what the primary barriers are to increased cross-border use of e-invoices. An increased use of e-invoices should facilitate international trade and simplify a process that currently requires many manual and repetitive action.

    Practical Aspects of Border Carbon Adjustment Measures

    - Using a Trade Facilitation Perspective to Assess Trade Costs

    Border carbon adjustment (BCA) measures are being discussed as a response to concerns regarding carbon leakage and competitiveness in a number of OECD countries, although no country has implemented these types of BCA measures yet. This analysis aims to complement the studies done on legal and economic issues with a discussion on the practical challenges and costs relating to the different ways a BCA could be constructed.
