EAPA of Action Notice of Determination as to Evasion in EAPA Case 7663 - Glycine

WASHINGTON—On July 22, 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a determination as to alleged evasion by Nutrawave Co., Ltd.; Starille, Ltd.; and Newtrend USA Co., Ltd. (collectively, “ the importers”) for evading customs duties in Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) Consolidated Case 7663. Specifically, CBP investigated allegations of evasion of antidumping duty (AD) order A-549-837 on glycine from Thailand. CBP found that substantial evidence did not exist that the importers imported the covered merchandise from Thailand by transshipping it through Indonesia and without paying AD duties.

This determination does not preclude CBP from taking additional enforcement measures as it determines appropriate under its EAPA or other legal authorities, which include pursuing civil penalties or investigations into criminal violations.
