U.S. trade commission renews finding that Canadian lumber imports injure U.S. industry

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) announced that it determined that revoking the existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain softwood lumber products from Canada would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to U.S. industry within a reasonably foreseeable time.

As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the existing orders (and punitive duties) on U.S. imports of this product from Canada will remain in place.

The USITC and the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct sunset reviews of countervailing duty (CVD) and anti-dumping (AD) duty orders on a 5-year cycle.

Commerce issued the final results of its first sunset review of the CVD and AD orders on softwood lumber from Canada on March 27 and April 3, 2023, respectively. Commerce found that, if duties on Canadian softwood lumber products were revoked, there would likely be a continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies and dumping.
