CBSA Commences New Investigation on Copper Pipe Fittings

Today the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation under the Special Import Measures Act relating to alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of copper pipe fittings originating in or exported from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The investigations follow a complaint filed by Cello Products Inc. (Cello). Cello, which is located in Cambridge, Ontario, produces wrought copper and cast brass solder fittings, in sizes ranging from 1/8″ to 8″.

CBSA has stated that the goods subject to the investigation are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

  • 7412.10.00.11
  • 7412.10.00.19
  • 7412.10.00.90
  • 7412.20.00.11
