WASHINGTON—On July 14, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a determination as to evasion by BGI Group Inc. dba U.S. Cabinet Depot (“BGI”) in Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) investigation, EAPA Case 7520, into the evasion of antidumping and countervailing duty orders for wooden cabinets and vanities and components thereof from the People’s Republic of China (China). CBP found there was not substantial evidence that BGI had imported merchandise covered by antidumping/countervailing duty orders from China by transshipping through Cambodia.
This determination does not preclude CBP from taking additional enforcement measures under its legal authorities if other customs concerns were identified, which include pursuing civil penalties or investigations into criminal violations.
