Chinese cabinet exporter reviewed for separate duty rate
December 3, 2020 | 10:12 am CST
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Commerce is reviewing a Chinese wooden cabinet and vanity manufacturer to see whether it should have a duty rate separate from China's standard 262.18 percent.
Dalian Hualing Wood Co. told Commerce that it didn't have any shipments to the U.S. during the initial investigation and that it isn't affiliated with any other producer or exporter of its products. It also says its exporting is not controlled by the Chinese government.
The review will determine if the company is eligible for a separate duty rate, which is assigned to the manufacturer, but paid by the importer of record of its product. If Commerce decides not to approve a new rate, the company will receive China's standard duty.
