On December 29, the Department of Commerce announced its final antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) determinations on wood mouldings and millwork products from Brazil and China.
Commerce found no dumping on wood mouldings and millwork products from Brazil and, therefore, there will be no AD order and duty deposit requirements for imports from Brazil.
New rates for China were outlined in decision memoranda for China and the rates will go into effect when Commerce publishes its AD/CVD final determinations in the Federal Register, which usually takes between two and five business days from the date of its final determinations.
A full list of companies with the applicable AD cash deposit rates for wood mouldings and millwork products from China is available in the draft Federal Register notice.
Upon the issuance of Commerce's final determinations on wood mouldings and millwork products, the International Trade Commission (ITC) must make its final determination on whether the domestic industry is injured or threatened with injury by way of imported wood mouldings and millwork products from Brazil and China.
If the ITC votes in the negative, no duties will be imposed, and any duties that were previously collected will be refunded. The ITC vote is currently scheduled for 22 January.
