On November 20, 2007, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) reversed the decision of the Court of International Trade (CIT) which upheld the Department of Commerce's (the Department) determination in the 2002-2003 administrative review of certain preserved mushrooms from India to conduct a duty absorption inquiry under section 751(a)(4) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), when the producer/exporter acts as its own importer of record. See Agro Dutch Industries Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 2007-1011 (Fed. Cir. November 20, 2007) (CAFC Decision).
