Copper Pipe Fittings – Notice of Initiation of Normal Value and Export Price Review

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has  initiated a normal value and export price review to update the normal values and export prices of certain copper pipe fittings exported to Canada from the United States by Nacobre USA LLC (Nacobre).

The review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) findings of material injury issued on February 19, 2007, and continued, without amendment, by order dated February 17, 2012 and continued, with amendment, by order dated November 28, 2016, respecting the dumping of certain copper pipe fittings from the United States, South Korea and China, in accordance with the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).

Should the exporter decide to participate in this normal value and export price review, it is required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s Request for Information (RFI) by February 19, 2020. The exporter will be considered co-operative if the requested information is complete, submitted on time and the exporter permits verification of the data.

If the exporter does not provide a complete response to the RFI by the deadline date, any previous normal values issued to the exporter will be immediately revoked and normal values applicable to subject goods exported by Nacobre will be determined by advancing the export price of the goods by 242%, pursuant to a ministerial specification.
