Irving Paper disappointed with 7.99% duty on SC paper exports to US determined by Dept of Commerce

Irving Paper received notification from the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) of a preliminary determination of 7.99% duty on exports of SC paper to the United States.  At this time we are awaiting receipt of the DOC’s report which details the reasons for this duty calculation. We are disappointed in the decision made by DOC.  Although this is a significant improvement from the current rate of more than 18.85% we had expected our rate to be significantly lower than 7.99%.  We will need to review Commerce’s written decision to understand the basis of the decision.

This preliminary determination does not immediately change the current rate of 18.85% which Irving Paper is paying on shipments into the U.S.

Between February and April of 2017 the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue the final rate.
