Dear Valued Customer,
On March 6, 2019, The American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance filed antidumping and countervailing petitions with the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), asserting that certain wooden cabinets and vanities for permanent installation from China are being sold at less than normal value.
The list of goods covered by these petitions is extensive and includes cabinets and vanities made substantially of wood products, including solid wood and engineered wood products. The latter includes those constructed of wood particles, fibers, plywood, strand board, block board, particle board, fiberboard, or bamboo. As they serve the purpose and function of permanently installed or affixed cabinetry, wooden cabinets and vanities with or without the following could also be affected by these petitions:
Wood veneers, wood, paper, or other overlays or laminates
Non-wood components or trim such as metal, marble, glass, plastic, or other resins
Finished or unfinished surfaces
Assembled or completed and not assembled or completed
For additional information on these petitions, please follow the below link:
Please note the following important dates:
April 22, 2019: ITC Preliminary Determination
May 30, 2019: DOC Preliminary Determination on Countervailing Duty (CVD), unless postponed.
August 13, 2019: DOC Preliminary Determination on Antidumping Duty (ADD), unless postponed.
