Antidumping and Countervailing Duties: Managing Risk and Ensuring Compliance
Antidumping and countervailing duties (AD/CVD) are unpredictable and require years for the assessment of final duties. As a result, importers are confronted with complex and increasing level of risk which, if not properly addressed, will result to significant duty and penalty payments that could negatively impact the importation activity.
In this 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 updates on the laws on US AD/CVD as well as courts' treatment to AD/CVD cases. Speakers will also offer best practices for import compliance.
Key topics include:
- AD/CVD Basics
- Regulatory and Legislative Updates
- Heightened Collection and Enforcement Activities
- Common Risks and Pitfalls
- Managing Compliance
