Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) Statistics

The Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) allows U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to investigate whether an entity has evaded antidumping and countervailing (AD/CVD) duties in an on-the-record investigation. EAPA is a multi-party, transparent, administrative proceeding. Parties to the investigation also may request administrative and judicial reviews of CBP’s determination as to evasion if they wish to appeal. The Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 (TFTEA) authorized the EAPA program on February 24, 2016, and CBP implemented EAPA through regulation in August 2016.

The map shows EAPA investigations that have made it to the interim measures and/or determination as to evasion stages of an investigation. EAPA investigators have investigated claims of evasion involving multiple products, including steel wire hangers, steel pipe and pipe products, wooden bedroom furniture, thermal paper, chassis, diamond sawblades, glycine, quartz surface products, wooden cabinets and vanities, xanthan gum, hardwood plywood, and aluminum extrusions.
