The role of Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) under the
Department is to provide the level playing field to the country’s domestic industry from the
foreign exporters so that they are able to compete effectively in the domestic market. This
measure is taken under the WTO agreement and comes under the Customs Tariff Act, 1975 and
Rules made thereunder. In August 2017, the investigation processes of DGAD became ISO
9001:2015 compliant which brought in transparency and accountability in its operations. The
Department has developed Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for its functions and activities.
These SOPs are codified in Quality Manual and procedures.
