Importers, here is your chance to learn all about the hot topic of AD/CVD. In celebration of World Trade Month, Diaz Trade Law is providing the trade community a valuable opportunity to speak direct with Supervisory Import Specialists with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and a legal expert to address your questions and concerns relating to CBP’s role in administering and enforcing imports subject to AD/CVD.
In Fiscal Year 2016, CBP Processed $14 billion of imported goods subject to AD/CVD, and collected $1.5 billion in cash deposits. By the end of the fiscal year, $2.8 billion in AD/CVD duties were still owed to the U.S. (dating back to 2001). From fiscal year 2015 to 2016, AD/CVD cash deposits increased over 25
percent. Learn directly from CBP on AD/CVD Compliance and Enforcement! With President Trumps new Executive Order mandating a plan by June 29 “to require importers deemed a risk to U.S. revenue to provide security for AD and CVD liability through bonds and other legal measures”- many questions arise! Now’s your time to ask them!!
