• Boron (B) not more than 0.01%,

• Niobium (Nb) not more than 0.100%,

• Titanium (Ti) not more than 0.08%, or

• Vanadium (V) not more than 0.300%

in coils or cut lengths, in thicknesses up to 0.168 in. (4.267 mm) and widths up to 72 inch (1,828.8 mm) with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards, with or without passivation and/or anti-fingerprint treatments, originating in or exported from the Republic of Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Socialist Republic of Vietnam, and excluding:

• corrosion-resistant steel sheet products for use in the manufacture of passenger automobiles, buses, trucks, ambulances or hearses or chassis therefor, or parts thereof, or accessories or parts thereof;

• steel products for use in the manufacture of aeronautic products;

• steel sheet that is coated or plated with tin, lead, nickel, copper, chromium, chromium oxides, both tin and lead (“terne plate”), or both chromium and chromium oxides (“tin free steel”);

• stainless flat-rolled steel products;

• corrosion-resistant steel sheet products that have been pre-painted, including with lacquers or varnishes, or permanently coated in plastic;

• galvanized armouring tape, which is narrow flat steel tape of 3 in. or less, that has been coated by a final operation with zinc by either the hot-dip galvanizing or the electrogalvanizing process so that all surfaces, including the edges, are coated;

• perforated steel,

• and tool steel

have caused injury or retardation or are threatening to cause injury, as these words are defined in SIMA.

This preliminary injury inquiry follows the notification, on November 8, 2019, that the President of the Canada Border Services Agency had initiated an investigation into the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of the above-mentioned goods.
