On August 9, 2017 the North Pacific Paper Company filed a petition seeking antidumping duties on uncoated groundwood paper from Canada. This paper is currently imported under tariff items 4801.00.0120, 4801.00.0140, 4802.61.1000, 4802.61.2000, 4802.61.3010, 4802.61.3110, 4802.61.3191, 4802.61.6040, 4802.62.1000, 4802.62.2000, 4802.62.3000, 4802.62.6140, 4802.69.1000, 4802.69.2000, and 4802.69.3000.
On September 22, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of these imports.
On March 13, 2018, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination. Commerce calculated a preliminary dumping rate of 22.16 percent for Catalyst Pulp and Paper Sales, Inc./Catalyst Paper General Partnership (collectively, Catalyst). Commerce calculated preliminary dumping rates of 0.00 percent for Resolute FP Canada Inc./Donohue Malbaie Inc. (collectively, Resolute) and White Birch Paper Canada Company/Papier Masson WB LP/FF Soucy WB LP/Stadacona WB LP (collectively, White Birch Paper). Commerce determined a preliminary dumping rate of 22.16 percent for all other producers and exporters of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada.
As a result of the preliminary affirmative determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require cash deposits based on these preliminary rates.
On August 2, 2018 the Department of Commerce revised downward its preliminary determination from between 0.00 – 22.16 percent to between 0.00 – 16.88 percent in its final determination in the antidumping duty investigation of several Canadian producers of groundwood paper. The Department determined that two individually investigated companies had final dumping rates of 0.00 percent, and one company had a final dumping rate of 16.88 percent. The department also determined, based on the unique facts of this investigation and the arguments made by interested parties, that the final dumping margin assigned to all other producers is a rate of 0.00 percent.
The cases ended on August 29, 2018, when the USITC determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of these imports. As a result of the USITC’s negat ive determinations, no antidumping or countervailing duty orders will be issued on imports of this product from Canada.
