About The Webinar

U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently advised importers that they must submit post-summary corrections, with required antidumping and countervailing duty deposits, for entries missing third-country AD/CV cases where the CBP country of origin differs from the Commerce scope country. The concern is profound because for nearly a year CBP’s Automated Commercial Environment system did not allow importers to file AD/CV entries with any of the listed third-country case numbers. For liquidated entries, CBP encourages voluntary tenders but advises that failure to take immediate action could lead to enforcement.

Key Topics

  • confirming whether a third-country AD/CV case applies to your merchandise and how to report it at entry
  • finding your applicable third-country case or obtaining one if needed
  • understanding the differences and similarities between CBP origin and Commerce scope rules that create third-country scenarios
  • deciding how and when to file post-summary corrections, voluntary tenders, or prior disclosures to minimize exposure
  • avoiding Enforce and Protect Act transshipment issues
  • finding resources and implementing best practices to increase compliance
