U.S. sets final punitive duty rates on Canadian aircraft

The United States' Department of Commerce announced on December 20, 2017 its affirmative final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of 100- to 150-seat large civil aircraft from Canada.

Based on the complaint initiated by an American aircraft manufacturer, the Department calculated a dumping margin of 79.82 percent and a final subsidy rate of 212.39 percent.

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits equal to the dumping margin and the final subsidy rate upon import into the United States of aircraft described in the complaint.

The U.S. International Trade Commission will now determine if American industry is "injured" by imports of the "dumped" and "subsidized" aircraft and is scheduled to make its final determinations on or about February 1, 2018.

If the Commission makes affirmative final determinations that imports of aircraft from Canada materially injure, or threaten material injury to, the domestic industry, The Department will issue AD and CVD orders. If the Commission makes negative determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated.
