The following is available on the Canada Border Services Agency website.

Carbon and Alloy Steel Line Pipe – Notice of Final Determination

On December 5, 2017, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping in respect of certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by January 4, 2018.

Provisional duties will continue to apply on imports of subject goods originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea until that date.  For importations of subject goods for which the exporter has not been issued a specific rate, the rate of provisional duty is equal to 107.2% of the export price.

Provisional duty is payable on subject goods that are released from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) during the period commencing September 6, 2017, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigation is terminated, the day on which the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) makes an order or finding, or the day an undertaking is accepted.

Additional information about this investigation is contained in a Statement of Reasons, which will be available within 15 days on the CBSA website.

Concrete Reinforcing Bar – Notice of Re-investigation

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated a re-investigation on December 04 2017, to update the normal values and export prices respecting certain concrete reinforcing bar (rebar) originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China), the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey (Rebar 1), and originating in or exported from the Republic of Belarus (Belarus), Chinese Taipei, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Japan, the Portuguese Republic and the Kingdom of Spain (Rebar 2) and the amounts of subsidy of certain rebar originating in or exported from China, in accordance with the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).

Exporters that wish to participate in this re-investigation are required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s Dumping Request for Information (RFI) and Subsidy RFI (China) by January 11, 2018. An exporter will be considered co-operative if the requested information is complete, submitted on time and the exporter permits verification of the data.

Responses to the Importer RFI are due by December 29, 2017. Importers are cautioned that new normal values or amounts of subsidy (China), when issued, may be higher than those currently in effect and that this could result in additional assessments of anti dumping and/or countervailing duty. Importers are also cautioned that unless an exporter (manufacturer) cooperates in this re-investigation and receives specific normal values or amounts of subsidy at its conclusion, subsequent imports of subject goods from that exporter will be assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duties based on the ministerial specifications indicated above.

The closing of the record for parties will be at noon on April 5, 2018. Case arguments and reply submissions from parties shall be filed by noon, on April 12, 2018 and April 19, 2018, respectively.
