On May 28, 2021, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register a notice of intent to distribute assessed antidumping or countervailing duties in connection with countervailing duty orders, antidumping duty orders, or findings under the Antidumping Act of 1921 (known collectively as the continued dumping and subsidy offset) for Fiscal Year 2021 pursuant to the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000 (CDSOA). Although the CDSOA was repealed by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, section 7601(b) of the Deficit Reduction Act provides that all duties collected on an entry filed before October 1, 2007, must be distributed as if CDSOA had not been repealed.
The notice provides the instructions for affected domestic producers, or anyone alleging eligibility to receive a distribution, to file certifications to claim a distribution in relation to the listed orders or findings.
Certifications to obtain a continued dumping and subsidy offset under a particular order or finding must be received by July 27, 2021. Any certification received after July 27, 2021 will be summarily denied, making claimants ineligible for the distribution.
