U. S. Trade Court Remands Hardwood Plywood Rate Determination


The U.S. Court of International Trade remanded this case for the fourth time, directing the U.S. Department of Commerce to reconsider the rate applied to the separate rate companies in the hardwood plywood case. Commerce had continued to calculate a rate of 57.36% for the separate rate companies and identified additional information on the record to support its determination.

Importantly, the Court agreed with Commerce's arguments that the 0% margin calculated for Chengen should not be used for the separate rate companies. The rate ultimately calculated will apply to a relatively limited number of entries.
