IWPA’s adds session on China plywood ruling

The 62nd World of Wood Annual Convention, scheduled for Mar 14-16 at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, will feature speakers and panel discussions focusing on economic trends affecting the wood products market, leadership strategies, best practices for working with suppliers on due care compliance, the latest on customs classification and the EPA formaldehyde regulation, and emerging trends in global trade.

The event, hosted by the International Wood Products Association, brings together executives from every segment of the North American imported woods industry.

A new session topic, “Beyond Scope: Classification and Anti-Circumvention Following the Chinese Plywood Ruling,” has been added to the agenda.

Laurel Duvall, national import specialist for U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s National Commodity Specialist Division, and Kristin Mowry of Mowry & Grimson PLLC, the firm that represented the coalition of wood products importers and U.S. manufacturers that contested the case, will share their expertise about the scope of the decision and what companies should keep in mind when importing plywood products into the United States.
