Anti-Dumping Duties

Certain Fabricated Industrial Steel Components – Notice of Initiation of Scope Proceeding

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated a scope proceeding on January 17, 2020, respecting certain fabricated industrial steel components (FISC) from China, South Korea and Spain.

The scope proceeding is the result of an application filed with the CBSA by Enerkem Inc. (Montreal, Quebec), a potential importer of the goods that are the subject of the application. The scope proceeding will establish whether or not Specialized Prefabricated Process Units are subject to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s injury finding issued on May 25, 2017, in Inquiry No. NQ-2016-004, concerning the dumping of certain FISC from China, South Korea (excluding those goods exported by Hanmaek Heavy Industries Co. Ltd.) and Spain (excluding those goods exported by Cintasa, S.A.), and the subsidizing of FISC from China.

Sucker Rods 2 – Notice of Undertaking Proposals

On December 30, 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), made a preliminary determination of dumping with respect to certain sucker rods originating in or exported from Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico.

Following a preliminary determination, SIMA provides that exporters accounting for all, or substantially all of the exports to Canada, may give a written undertaking to revise selling prices to Canada so that the margin of dumping or the injury caused by the dumping is eliminated. An undertaking takes the form of a written commitment to adhere to specific conditions in exporting goods subject to an investigation.

On January 15, 2020, the CBSA received separate proposals for an undertaking from exporting parties Metalmecanica S.A. from Argentina, Confab Industrial S.A. from Brazil, and Tubos de Acero de Mexico S.A. from Mexico. The aforementioned exporters represent all of the dumped goods exported to Canada during the period of investigation.

In accordance with subsection 49(5) of SIMA, undertaking proposals submitted by exporters to the CBSA will be made available to interested parties, subject to the CBSA’s rules of disclosure for confidential information, for a period of nine days for purposes of any representations they may wish to make. Any representations to the CBSA concerning this undertaking must be received by January 24, 2020.
