New AD/CV Duties Possible on
Wood Moldings and Millwork Products
A petition filed Jan. 8 alleges that wood moldings and millwork products from Brazil and China are being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. market and that such items from China are benefitting from countervailable subsidies. The alleged average dumping margins are 268.74 percent for Brazil and 289.70 to 361.83 percent for China.
The Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission will next determine whether to launch AD and/or CV duty and injury investigations, respectively, on these products. There are strict statutory deadlines associated with these proceedings, so affected companies that wish to protect their interests should contact Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg as soon as possible.
