Expiry Review Decision Released for Certain Steel Piping
On January 25, 2018, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) issued an expiry review decision pursuant to the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) regarding the dumping and subsidizing of certain steel piling pipe originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).
Today’s report is the culmination of an expiry review investigation of a November 30, 2012 finding by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) that certain steel piling pipe poses a risk to the domestic Canadian industry. The finding followed a complaint filed by Atlas Tube Canada Inc. of Harrow, Ontario. CBSA has determined that the expiry of the finding will likely result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing of such products originating in or exported from China.
CBSA will issue a Statement of Reasons within 15 days providing further details.
The CITT will undertake an inquiry to assess whether the expiry of its 2012 findings is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry, with a decision set to be released no later than July 4, 2018.
