In August 2016, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiated an expiry review of its April 2012 finding concerning the dumping and the subsidizing of certain oil country tubular goods pup joints made of carbon or alloy steel originating in or exported from China. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties are currently imposed on the subject goods.
Following the Tribunal's announcement the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the finding was likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject pup joints.
The CBSA announced this week that its investigation has been completed and that it has determined that the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and of subsidizing of such goods.
The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its finding is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and will issue its decision by April 7, 2017.
