Yesterday, after publication in the Federal Register of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (“CBP”) “Notice of Intent to Distribute Offset for Fiscal Year 2023,” the agency released a report with preliminary amounts available for distribution in fiscal year 2023 as of April 30, 2023.
In total, CBP reports that roughly $4.4 million in collected antidumping and countervailing duties will be available for distribution under the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act (“CDSOA”) for all domestic industries qualified to receive these funds. Virtually all of that total represents antidumping duties collected on imports of Chinese crawfish tails ($2.3 million), Chinese fresh garlic ($1.4 million), Vietnamese fish fillets ($0.3 million), and Chinese pure magnesium (granular) ($0.2 million).
For shrimp, CBP reports that just $3,270.27 in antidumping duties collected on shrimp imports from Brazil, Ecuador, India, and Thailand that entered the United States prior to October 1, 2007 are available for distribution under the CDSOA program during this fiscal year.
Last year, CBP reported that a preliminary amount of just $1,269.22 in collected antidumping duties on shrimp imports was available for distribution as of April 30, 2022. Ultimately, CBP distributed a much higher amount ($339,684.11) in collected antidumping duties on shrimp imports to qualified beneficiaries in the shrimp industry in fiscal year 2022.
Per the notice published in yesterday’s Federal Register, in order to receive fiscal year 2023 distributions of Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act (“CDSOA”) funds, certifications must be received by CBP no later than July 31, 2023.
