U.S. Customs and Border Protection Exercises EAPA Authority, Launches Multiple Investigations on Illegal Imports from China

September 2017

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued ten decisions during the week of August 17th in Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) investigations concerning the evasion of the antidumping duty orders for wire hangers and wooden bedroom furniture. CBP issued its first final determination in an EAPA investigation on Monday August 14th, finding substantial evidence that wire hangers were imported through evasion. Specifically, the hangers were transshipped from China through Thailand to evade the antidumping duties.  The authority for investigating under EAPA began last August 2016, and the allegation on transshipment of hangers through Thailand was filed shortly thereafter, in September.
