Webinar: 1 CCS Credit
Two ongoing cases could signal important changes to the way dumping margins are calculated and result in higher AD duties on imported goods. One is calling into question the established practice of substantial transformation used for determining a product's country of origin. The other has introduced a new methodology that allows the use of alternative data to calculate AD margins where distortions may exist in market economies. This webinar will review the latest developments in these cases and how importers might be affected.
- new Section 232 national security investigation on steel imports
