Aug. 30, 2018 (Press Release) - The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) on Aug. 29 determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Meredith M. Broadbent, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Jason E. Kearns voted in the negative.

As a result of the USITC's negative determinations, no antidumping or countervailing duty orders will be issued on imports of this product from Canada.

The Commission's public report Uncoated Groundwood Paper from Canada (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-584 and 731-TA-1382 (Final), USITC Publication 4822, September 2018) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
