"CBP [Customs and Border Protection] is committed to ensuring that Antidumping and Countervailing Duties (AD/CVD) laws are vigorously enforced. To this end, CBP has established key partnerships with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce), U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and other partner agencies to provide comprehensive enforcement. With these effective collaborations in place, CBP has had success in identifying fraudulent activity, penalizing violators, and disrupting efforts to evade the payment of AD/CVD. In FY 2016, CBP levied 13 monetary penalties totaling over $30.6 million on importers for fraud, gross negligence, and negligence for AD/CVD violations under 19 U.S.C. § 1592, seized 16 shipments with a domestic value of more than $5.3 million for violations of AD/CVD in conjunction with ICE, carried out over 33,000 reviews of potential AD/CVD violations and identified over $92 million in discrepancies, and conducted 89 audits and audit surveys of importers that identified $14.7 million in AD/CVD discrepancies with $4.8 million collected (as of October 2016). CBP is continuing to pursue collections of all unpaid duties."
