Margins of Dumping by Exporter
Country of origin or export Exporter Weighted average margin of dumping expressed as a percentage of export price
Republic of Korea Husteel Co., Ltd. 4.1%
Hyundai Corporation 52.5%
Hyundai Steel Company 47.8%
Nexteel Co., Ltd. 12.9%
SeAH Steel Corporation 27.5%
All other exporters 88.1%

Note: The margins of dumping reported in the table above are the margins determined by the CBSA for purposes of the final determination of dumping. These margins do not reflect the amount of anti-dumping duty to be levied on future importations of dumped goods. In the event of an injury finding by the CITT, normal values have been provided to the exporters which provided sufficient information for future shipments to Canada and these normal values would come into effect the day after the injury finding. Information regarding normal values of the subject goods should be obtained from the exporter. Imports from exporters/producers that did not provide sufficient information to the CBSA during the dumping investigation and who are not listed in the table above will be subject to the All Other Exporters anti-dumping duty rate, pursuant to a ministerial specification.

Normally, normal values will not be applied retroactively. However, this measure may be applied retroactively in cases where the parties have not advised the CBSA in a timely manner of substantial changes that affect values for SIMA purposes. Therefore, where substantial changes occur in prices, market conditions, costs associated with production and sales of the goods, the onus is on the concerned parties to advise the CBSA.

Please consult the SIMA Self Assessment Guide for more detailed information explaining how to determine the amount of SIMA duties owing.
