About The Webinar

The Department of Commerce and U.S. Customs and Border Protection are now working closely together to combat the circumvention of AD/CV duty orders and the evasion of AD/CV duties. Recent changes to the U.S. AD/CVD regulations will make navigating AD/CVD laws more difficult as there are significant changes impacting this intersection at Commerce.  These changes come at a time when CBP is conducting formal investigations of alleged AD/CV duty evasion under the authority of the Enforce and Protect Act. Following review of CBP data and investigations, DOC has been utilizing anti-circumvention proceedings to expand the coverage of AD/CV duty orders and duty liability. DOC has even self-initiated an anticircumvention proceeding following CBP’s affirmative evasion determinations.

This one-hour webinar will review this evolving intersection of anti-circumvention and enforcement policies and provide insights on best practices to protect your company.
