CBSA Initiates Anti-Dumping Investigation Concerning Oil Pump Sucker Rods from Argentina, Brazil and Mexico
On 30 September 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) published a Notice of Initiation of Investigation (SR2-2019-IN) concerning allegations that dumped imports of certain sucker rods designed for oilfield pumps (usually classified under tariff classification no. 8413.91.00.10) from Argentina, Brazil and Mexico are causing or threatening to cause material injury to the domestic industry.
This investigation was triggered by a formal complaint filed by Apergy Canada ULC – Alberta Oil Tool Division (Apergy). In December 2018, Apergy was successful in litigating a similar complaint against certain sucker rods from China (see Inquiry No. NQ-2018-001).
It is expected that the CBSA will publish its Statement of Reasons for its decision to initiate the investigation by Tuesday 15 October 2019.
