Antidumping and Countervailing Duties
U.S. industries often complain that they face unfair competition from imported goods sold at below market value from a particular country. U.S. industries may then file a formal grievance with the International Trade Administration (ITA). If the ITA agrees with the grievance, additional duties will be imposed on the imported goods from the foreign country. The additional duties are "countervailing" if a foreign government is subsidizing the imported goods. These duties are "antidumping" if a private foreign company is responsible for importing or "dumping" the goods into the U.S. commerce. US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) collects those duties.
Our Firm’s Role
Our firm assists aggrieved industries to file petitions to impose antidumping and countervailing duties against foreign countries for their unfair competitive practices. We also assist importers when US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) imposes fines and penalties against importers for nonpayment. We also challenge antidumping and countervailing duties on importers' behalf by filing scope ruling requests.
