A clear link between the trigger of the new non-standard anti-dumping methodology and the EUs market economy criteria: the use of Chinese prices and costs as a basis for calculating dumping should depend on Chinas and Chinese producers complete fulfilment of the EUs five criteria as established by EU law and practice

Non-reversal of the burden of proof: it should remain up to China and Chinese exporters to prove that they operate under normal market economy conditions

Non-discrimination between economic sectors: the new methodology should be actionable equally by all industrial sectors and EU producers affected by injurious dumping.
