Potential Relief for AR1 Non-Applicants: US Softwood Lumber Duty Adjustment

A phone call from a Canadian sawmill last week made Madison’s think that perhaps this is very useful information that some may not have received. In particular please note this:
Unless were are incorrect, we believe it has been the “general” understanding that if your company did not apply for the Administrative Review, and if your company is not included on the attached list, your entries were ordered to be liquidated at the previous Final All Other Case (C-122-858-000) CVD rate of 14.19% instead of the AR1 revised CVD rate of 6.71%, with the funds disbursed to the U.S. Treasury – and lost for all time
If this was not your understanding, please let us know.

The Alberta sawmill which phoned is NOT on this list. It is possible that many others are not as well.
Please check the attached file to see if your company is listed, if not I believe a specific request for reimbursement must be made:


This document came to Madison’s from an excellent long-time source, a Customs Broker working the Canada-US border at Blaine, WA.
