U.S. to charge up to 22 per­cent tar­iff on Cana­dian newsprint

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - The Bundle Building System That Does It All. -

The U.S. gov­ern­ment has an­nounced a pre­lim­i­nary de­ter­mi­na­tion in an an­tidump­ing duty in­ves­ti­ga­tion of im­ports of un­coated ground­wood pa­per from Canada. That class of pa­per in­cludes newsprint, as well as pa­per for print­ing and book pub­lish­ing.

The Com­merce Depart­ment says it de­ter­mined that ex­porters from Canada have sold un­coated ground­wood pa­per in the U.S. be­tween 0.00 and 22.16 per­cent less than fair value, down from the es­ti­mated dump­ing mar­gins al­leged by the pe­ti­tioner of 23.45 to 54.97 per­cent. The pe­ti­tioner is north Pa­cific Pa­per Com­pany of Wash­ing­ton state.

as a re­sult of the March 13 de­ci­sion, "Com­merce will in­struct U.S. Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion (CBP) to col­lect cash de­posits from im­porters of un­coated ground­wood pa­per from Canada based on these pre­lim­i­nary rates," ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the depart­ment.

Com­merce is sched­uled to an­nounce the fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tion in this in­ves­ti­ga­tion on or about au­gust 2.

U.S. au­thor­i­ties will start col­lect­ing cash de­posits im­me­di­ately from Cana­dian im­porters based on the pre­lim­i­nary duty rate, CnHI news Ser­vice re­ported.

If Com­merce makes af­fir­ma­tive fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tions of dump­ing and the U.S. In­ter­na­tional Trade Commission makes an af­fir­ma­tive fi­nal in­jury de­ter­mi­na­tion, Com­merce will is­sue an aD (anti-dump­ing duty) or­der. If Com­merce makes a neg­a­tive fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tion of dump­ing or the ITC makes a neg­a­tive fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tion of in­jury, the in­ves­ti­ga­tion will be ter­mi­nated and no or­der will be is­sued.
