The U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative determination in its preliminary injury investigation on December 30, 2016.

On June 19, 2017 the Department of Commerce announced an affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping investigation.

On November 13, 2017, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations. Commerce found that dumping has occurred by mandatory respondent Shandong Dongfang Bayley Wood Co., Ltd. at a margin of 183.36 percent, based on adverse facts available because it did not cooperate to the best of its ability. Commerce found that dumping has occurred by mandatory respondent Linyi Chengen Import and Export Co., Ltd. at a margin of 183.36 percent. Commerce established a dumping margin of 183.36 percent for the non-selected respondents eligible for a separate rate, and a dumping margin of 183.36 percent for all other producers/exporters in China that are part of the China-wide entity, based on adverse facts available because they did not cooperate to the best of their ability. Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to collect cash deposits equal to the applicable final weighted-average dumping rates. Further, as a result of the affirmative final CVD determination, if the U.S. International Trade Commission makes an affirmative injury determination, Commerce will instruct CBP to resume collection of cash deposits equal to the applicable subsidy rates.

On December 1, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of these imports. As a result of the USITC’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from China.
