U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is issuing updated guidance on the correct use of the 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty (AD/CVD) special value field.

The AD/CVD special value fields on the entry summary record may now be used when a value or quantity different from the standard CBP appraised value must be used to calculate AD/CVD for goods on a line that are subject to an antidumping or countervailing duty proceeding.

The attached document provides detailed guidance and graphical representations of how the AD/CVD Value of Goods Amount should be reported in ACE depending on the nature of the imported merchandise.  

CBP previously issued Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) messages #03-002707, #04-001995 and #15-000091 concerning this issue.  This guidance supersedes all CSMS messages and guidance previously issued.  

Please refer questions to your assigned CBP Client Representative or contact for more information.
