Due to the complexity and novelty of the issues presented by the investigations into the alleged injurious dumping of certain fabricated industrial steel components originating in or exported from from China, Korea, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom, and the alleged injurious subsidizing of the same goods from China, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that it extended the 90-day period for making preliminary decisions, pertaining to all or part of the investigations, to 135 days.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal determined in November that there is preliminary evidence that dumping and/or subsidizing have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury to Canadian industry. Provisional anti-dumping duties could be applied to the goods in question if CBSA confirms that they are the subject of dumping and/or subsidizing.
The decision by CBSA to issue its preliminary determination, or to terminate all or part of the investigation, will now be made on or before January 25, 2017.
