Commerce Preliminarily Finds Dumping of Imports of Uncoated Groundwood Paper from Canada

• On March 13, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of imports of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada.
• The AD law provides U.S. businesses and workers with a transparent, quasi-judicial, and internationally accepted mechanism to seek relief from the market distorting effects caused by injurious dumping of imports into the United States, establishing an opportunity to compete on a level playing field.
• For the purpose of AD investigations, dumping occurs when a foreign company sells a product in the United States at less than its fair value.
• Commerce calculated a preliminary dumping rate of 22.16 percent for Catalyst Pulp and Paper Sales, Inc./Catalyst Paper General Partnership (collectively, Catalyst). Commerce calculated preliminary dumping rates of 0.00 percent for Resolute FP Canada Inc./Donohue Malbaie Inc. (collectively, Resolute) and White Birch Paper Canada Company/Papier Masson WB LP/FF Soucy WB LP/Stadacona WB LP (collectively, White Birch Paper). Commerce determined a preliminary dumping rate of 22.16 percent for all other producers and exporters of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada.
• As a result of the preliminary affirmative determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to require cash deposits based on these preliminary rates.
• The petitioner is North Pacific Paper Company (WA).
• The merchandise covered by this investigation is certain paper that has not been coated on either side and with 50 percent or more of the cellulose fiber content consisting of groundwood pulp, including groundwood pulp made from recycled paper, weighing not more than 90 grams per square meter. Groundwood pulp includes all forms of pulp produced from a mechanical pulping process, such as thermo-mechanical process (TMP), chemi-thermo mechanical process (CTMP), bleached chemi-thermo mechanical process (BCTMP) or any other mechanical pulping process. The scope includes paper shipped in any form, including but not limited to both rolls and sheets.
