Large Diameter Carbon and Alloy Steel Line Pipe – Conclusion of Normal Value and Export Price Review

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today concluded a normal value and export price review of certain welded large diameter carbon and alloy steel line pipe (large line pipe) exported from Japan to Canada by Sumitomo Corporation (Sumitomo).

The CBSA received a response to the Dumping Request for Information (RFI) from Sumitomo, the exporter of the subject goods.  However, the company that produced the goods exported to Canada by Sumitomo did not respond to the CBSA’s RFI.

The information submitted in the case arguments was given due consideration by the CBSA. The CBSA attempted to determine specific normal values for the goods sold to Canada by Sumitomo.

Since the producer of the goods did not provide any information to the CBSA, specific normal values could not be determined. Under such circumstances, normal values are determined pursuant to the Ministerial Specification on the basis of the export price of the goods advanced by 95.0%, which represents the highest amount by which the normal value exceeded the export price found on an individual transaction (expressed as a percentage of the export price), during the original investigation.

Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG I & II) and Certain Seamless Casing – Notice of Extension of Re-investigations

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has extended the re-investigations to update the normal values and export prices of certain oil country tubular goods (OCTG) and certain seamless casing originating in or exported from China as well as certain OCTG originating in or exported from the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu (Chinese Taipei), India, Indonesia, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine and Vietnam.

The CBSA has extended the re-investigations by 45 days due to the complexity and novelty of the issues presented by the re-investigations. Consequently, the re-investigations will conclude by May 11, 2020.

Oil Country Tubular Goods – Notice of Initiation of Expiry Review Investigation

On February 5, 2020, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) initiated an expiry review concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain oil country tubular goods originating or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.

As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA has solicited responses to questionnaires from Canadian producers, importers and exporters/foreign producers and to the Government of China.  Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by March 16, 2020.
