US: Preliminary anti-dumping duties on plywood

26.07.2017 − 

The majority of Chinese hardwood plywood manufacturers will be subject to preliminary anti-dumping duties as part of a current investigation under way in the US. According to a release issued on 19 June 2017, the US Department of Commerce (DOC) believes that Chinese plywood is being offered in the US at dumping prices. To make up for competitive disadvantages for the domestic plywood industry, the DOC imposed preliminary punitive duties of 57.36-114.72%. Preliminary countervailing duties on plywood imports from China had been announced back in April.

The DOC has investigated individual Chinese companies as mandatory respondents within the parameters of the probe. No cases of dumping were found at Linyi Chengen Import and Export or at Linyi Dongfangjuxin Wood so these companies do not have to pay any extra duties. Shandong Dongfang Bayley Wood faces the highest rate of 114.72%. Other companies that at least partly took part in interviews by US authorities are subject to a reduced 57.36% duty. The highest rate applies to all other Chinese manufacturers, too.
