In total, CBP reported distributing roughly $45.7 million under the CDSOA program in FY2017.  The vast majority of those funds, totaling $40.4 million, were distributed in relation to just four antidumping duty orders:  ironing tables from China ($18.4 million); preserved mushrooms from China ($11.8 million); fresh garlic from China ($5.8 million); and crawfish tail meat from China ($4.4 million).

Per CBP’s reporting, over the last twelve years, over $268 million in antidumping duties have been distributed to the shrimp industry through CDSOA.  The total amount of duties collected on shrimp imports and distributed through CDSOA is summarized in the chart below:

 

No duties were reported as “uncollected” on shrimp imports in fiscal year 2017, as was the case in fiscal year 2016.
Antidumping duties collected on imports of shrimp entered into the country before October 1, 2007 are distributed through the CDSOA program.  Funds will continue to be distributed, in diminishing amounts, under the CDSOA program until all litigation regarding those shrimp import entries is resolved and final duties are assessed and collected by CBP.  CBP reports that the amount held in “clearing account balances” related to the shrimp antidumping duty orders is now $690,281.26, as summarized in the table below.
