WASHINGTON—On December 23, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a Notice of Initiation of Investigation as part of an ongoing Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) investigation, EAPA Case 7520, into the alleged evasion of antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) order involving the transshipment of wooden cabinets and vanities and component parts thereof (WCV) from The People’s Republic of China (China). During the course of its investigation, CBP determined that the evidence reasonably suggested that BGI Group Inc. doing business as U.S. Cabinet Depot (BGI) imported WCV from China by transshipping them through Cambodia to evade AD/CVD orders A-570-106 and C-570-107, potentially evading a significant amount in antidumping duties owed to the U.S. Government.
CBP did not institute interim measures against BGI in this case.
