Carbon and Alloy Steel Line Pipe – Final Determination

On June 8, 2017, the CBSA initiated an investigation respecting the dumping of certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea.

Upon receiving notice of the initiation of the investigation, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) commenced a preliminary injury inquiry into whether the evidence discloses a reasonable indication that the alleged dumping of the above-mentioned goods has caused injury or retardation or is threatening to cause injury to the Canadian industry producing the like goods.

On August 8, 2017, the CITT made a preliminary determination that there is evidence that discloses a reasonable indication that the dumping of certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea has caused or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

On September 6, 2017, the CBSA made a preliminary determination of dumping respecting certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea. On the same date, the CBSA began imposing provisional duties on imports of subject goods.

On September 7, 2017, the CITT initiated a full inquiry to determine whether the dumping of the above-mentioned goods has caused injury or retardation or is threatening to cause injury to the Canadian industry.

Based on the available evidence, the CBSA is satisfied that certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea has been dumped.

The CITT’s inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian industry is continuing, and it has announced that it will issue its finding by January 4, 2018. Provisional duties will continue to be imposed on the subject goods from the Republic of Korea until the CITT renders its decision.
