This normal value review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) finding of a threat of injury issued on January 4, 2018, respecting the dumping of line pipe from South Korea, in accordance with the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).

Certain Seamless Casing and Oil Country Tubular Goods – Statement of Essential Facts

On April 11, 2019, the CBSA received an Application for a scope ruling from Western Alliance Tubulars Ltd. (Western Alliance) as to whether insulated tubing (IT) and vacuum insulated tubing (VIT) originating in or exported from China are subject to the CITT orders noted above.Footnote 2

[4] The Application for the scope ruling was complete and met all requirements under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) to warrant the initiation of a scope proceeding. The Applicant provided arguments and evidence in support of its position that IT/VIT from China are subject to the CITT’s orders.

[5] On May 10, 2019, pursuant to subsection 63(8) of SIMA, the CBSA initiated a scope proceeding with respect to the goods that are the subject of the Application.

[6] The administrative record for this scope proceeding closed on July 4, 2019.
