An Introduction to Safeguard Investigations

posted by Jennifer Diaz May 6, 2021 1 Comment

What is Section 201 ?

Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 provides import relief measures (also known as Safeguards) for domestic industries. The measures provide temporary relief for U.S. industries when competitor imports increase so significantly that they cause serious injury or threat to the domestic industry. The Safeguard measures are temporary – they allow the U.S. President to raise import duties or impose nontariff barriers on goods entering the United States for a limited period so that domestic industry is given sufficient time to adjust to the competition.

Background on AD/CVD Investigations

Antidumping duty (“AD”) and countervailing duty (“CVD”) investigations are brought jointly by the U.S. International Trade Commission (“USITC”) and the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”). AD investigations are triggered when a domestic industry alleges that it has been injured by competing imports of particular goods from specific countries being sold at less than a fair value. Meanwhile, CVD investigations are triggered when a domestic industry alleges that it has been injured by competing imports that are being unfairly subsidized by their governments.

On May 31, CBP announced it will be giving away money! There is an application process, and only certain companies are qualified to request it. Read on to see if it’s YOU!

HAVE YOU Been Affected by The Continuance of Anti-Dumping and Subsidy Offset?

The list of domestic producers that have been personally affected were sent to the U.S International Trade Commission (USITC) and can be found on the federal register as well. The list indicates who is potentially eligible to receive an offset. fingerHowever, although your name may not be on the list, it does not necessarily mean that your company has not been affected. Any individual or company who may have purchased any portion of the operating assets of an affected domestic producer, a successor to an affected domestic producer, or an entity that otherwise previously received distribution may be jointly and severally liable for the return of any over payments. Therefore, for domestic producers who are not on the USITC list but believe they are eligible for a CDSOA distribution under one or more anti-dumping and/or countervailing duty cases are required, as are all potential claimants that expressly appear on the list, to properly file their certifications within 60 days after May 31, 2018. Certifications that are not filed within 60 days and/or fail to sufficiently establish a basis for eligibility will be summarily denied. Continue Reading
