Commerce Investigating Antidumping of Brazilian and Chinese Moulding/Millwork

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced last week that it is initiating an antidumping investigation of imports of Brazilian and Chinese wood moulding and millwork and conducting a separate countervailing duty investigation on imported Chinese wood moulding and millwork.  The petitioner – Coalition of American Millwork Producers – filed its claim on January 8, 2020 and alleged anti-dumping duties of 86.7% for products from Brazil and 181.2% to 359.2% from China.  The scope of covered products is defined as:

“…wood mouldings and millwork products that are made of wood (regardless of wood species), bamboo, laminated veneer lumber (LVL), or of wood and composite materials (where the composite materials make up less than 50 percent of the total merchandise), and which are continuously shaped wood that undergoes additional manufacturing or finger-jointed or edge-glued moulding or millwork blanks (whether or not resawn).  The percentage of composite materials contained in a wood moulding or millwork product is measured by length, except when the composite material is a coating or cladding.”

The case will now move to the International Trade Commission (ITC), which is scheduled to make a preliminary injury determination on or before February 24, 2020.  See Commerce Fact Sheet and Chinese Countervailing Duty Notice.  More Info: Jackson Morrill
