June 23rd, 2016
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made preliminary determinations of dumping with respect to certain welded large diameter carbon and alloy steel line pipe (large line pipe) originating in or exported from China and Japan, and of subsidizing of the same goods from China.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal found on May 24, 2016 that there is a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of the goods from both countries have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.
Provisional duties at rates of up to 127% will now be payable on the subject goods that are released from customs on or after June 22, 2016.
The Tribunal will now formally determine if the dumping and the subsidizing is causing prejudice to Canadian industry.
