CBSA finds dumping/subsidizing would resume if duties expired on steel line pipe from China
Tribunal will now determine whether the expiry of duties is likely to result in injury to Canadian industry
In March 2021 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiated an expiry review of its 2016 finding concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China
As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation to determine whether the expiry of the order (and the removal of anti-dumping and/or countervailing duties) would result in the continuation or resumption of dumping.
The investigation has now been completed and the Agency’s President has determined that the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.
The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its finding is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than January 6, 2022.
