Petitioners request removal of Ua Wood Floors from trade investigation

Home News Petitioners request removal of Ua Wood Floors from trade investigation

Washington—The petitioners in the unfair trade investigation of multilayered wood flooring from China have requested that the U.S. Department of Commerce remove Ua Wood Floors from the coverage of these proceedings.  Ua Wood Floors, Inc. is a producer/exporter of multilayered wood flooring (MLWF) in Taiwan. The company’s U.S. arm, Ua Floors, is based in Lancaster, Pa.

Ua Wood Floors has filed a formal certification with the Department of Commerce, which affirms that the company is organized under the laws of the Republic of China (Taiwan), that its sole manufacturing facility is located in Taiwan, that it does not manufacture MLWF in China (PRC), and it does not export MLWF manufactured in the PRC. Imports from Taiwan, including product manufactured by Ua Wood Floors in that country, are not subject to these investigations. The petitioners’ request to the Department of Commerce was submitted on the basis of the assurances set forth in the company’s certification.

As is the case in all antidumping/countervailing duty investigations, any effect of the proceedings—including the imposition of duty deposit requirements—applies only to products from the country named in the petition, in this case, the People’s Republic of China.  Imports from other countries are not subject to these requirements.  However, the petitioners note that false claims regarding the country-of-origin of an imported product can subject the U.S. importer to civil and criminal penalties.
