DOC Determinations-Administrative Review 07-08:
CP Kelco B.V. Dumping Rate Increases from 7.02 % to 24.23% in Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Affecting July 1, 2007 - June 30, 2008 entries.
On October 14, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published its Final Results of its antidumping duty administrative review of Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from the Netherlands. This review affects entries made September 1, 2007 - August 31, 2008. The Department of Commerce determine that CP Kelco B.V. sold products at less than fair value, calculating a 24.23% rate. This new rate is a significant increase from the 7.02% rate calculated in the previous review.
Keep track of the calendar! If the U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not liquidate the entries within six months, by law, it must liquidate them as entered. In this case, that means that if Customs and Border Protection delays liquidation, you will not be requried to pay the additional 1.5% of entered value. If your entries are liquidated after the 6 months at the higher rate, you can protest the liquidation and escape the additional liability.
