During a recent webcast hosted by Integration Point, Wade Gerdemann, Founder and Chief at Newport Trade Services, and Jeff Bensing, Principal at Mercor Consulting shared their thoughts on Anti-Dumping/Countervailing Duty (AD/CVD) enforcement in the United States.

 Now, they answer your most pressing questions from the webcast:

Q: ­Does one need both elements of evasion AND AD/CVD? In other words, what happens if the importer knows the items are subject to AD/CVD, and chooses to pay those? I was wondering if the importer chooses to import these items and pays the AD/CVD. ­

A: It is perfectly legal and legitimate to import goods subject to AD/CVD as long as you follow all procedures and pay the full duties on properly valued goods.
