U.S. launches anti-dumping investigation on imports of paper from Canada
The United States International Trade Commission began antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of imports of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada.
The investigations are in response to a claim by an American manufacturer that the paper is sold in the United States at less than fair value and is subsidized by the Government of Canada.
The Commission's investigation will determine whether there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury, or the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of imports of the subject paper from Canada.
Under U.S. law the Commission must reach a preliminary determination in antidumping and countervailing duty investigations in 45 days, or in this case by September 25, 2017.
The U.S. Department of Commerce will then, if applicable, determine the amounts by which the goods are dumped and/or subsidized.
