EAPA Cons. Case 7737: Gorilla Paper, Inc. and Gorilla Supply (Notice of Determination as to Evasion, May 12, 2023)

EAPA Action: Notice of Determination as To Evasion in EAPA Cons Case 7737 - Thermal

WASHINGTON— On May 12, 2023, CBP issued the notice of determination as to evasion for EAPA consolidated case 7737 filed by the Paper Receipts Converting Association, against U.S. importer, Gorilla Paper, Inc. and Gorilla Supply (collectively, Gorilla Paper) for evasion of the applicable antidumping (AD) orders A-428-850 and A-580-911 on thermal paper from Germany and South Korea.  Specifically, evidence on the record shows that Gorilla Paper transshipped German-origin and South Korean-origin thermal paper through Turkey and also misclassified thermal paper.  CBP has determined that there is substantial evidence of evasion of AD duties by Gorilla Paper and, therefore, CBP issued a formal notice of determination as to evasion and has taken enforcement actions.

In light of CBP’s findings, CBP will:

  • Suspend or continue to suspend the entries covered by this investigation until instructed by Department of Commerce to liquidate;
  • For those entries previously extended in accordance with Interim Measures, rate adjust and change those entries to type 03 and continue suspension until instructed by Department of Commerce to liquidate these entries; and
  • Continue to evaluate Gorilla Paper’s continuous bonds in accordance with CBP’s policies.
