The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) concluded, on June 29, a re-investigation of the normal values and export prices respecting certain concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from China, the Republic of Korea, and Turkey and the amounts of subsidy of the same goods from China.
The re-investigation was initiated on February 9, 2016, as part of the ongoing enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal's January 2015 finding of a threat of injury to domestic producers.
The changes to the normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy, a complete product definition of the subject goods as well as the dates of enforcement, are detailed in the CBSA's Notice of Conclusion of Re-Investigation.
In its Notice the CBSA reminds importers that it is their responsibility to calculate and declare their anti-dumping and/or countervailing duty liability. When importers are using the services of a customs broker to clear importations, the brokerage firm should be advised that the goods are subject to anti-dumping and/or countervailing measures and be provided with sufficient information necessary to clear the shipments.
