Antidumping (AD) and Countervailing duties (CVD) encourage fair market between domestic and imported goods by imposing restrictions on unfairly traded imports. Importers who are not aware if their products are covered by US AD and CVD orders, may find themselves liable for AD/CVD duties. Since AD/CVD duties are unpredictable and may take years before final duties are assessed, the level of risk increases significantly. Importers are vulnerable to increased duty liability long after the goods are imported. Because of this, importers must understand the risk as well as the tools available to protect themselves from unwanted liability and to ensure import compliance.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help companies and their counsel understand the risk associated with importing goods subject to AD/CVD duties. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent laws which modify the US AD and CVD laws as well as how courts have addressed AD/CVD cases. Speakers will also offer best practices for import compliance.
