Greenhouse bell peppers: Dumping (Netherlands)

Product information

Product Definition

The subject goods are defined as:

"Greenhouse bell peppers originating in/or exported from the Netherlands."

Greenhouse bell peppers are greenhouse grown bell peppers of the family solanaceae, species capsicum annum L. A greenhouse is a controllable dynamic system, managed for intensive production of high quality, fresh market produce. Greenhouse production allows for crop production under very diverse conditions. By controlling a number of variables such as air temperature, root zone temperature, vapor pressure deficit, fertilizer feed, carbon dioxide enrichment, selection of growing media, and plant maintenance, the greenhouse growers aim to obtain maximum performance from the crop over the production season. High fruit quality and yield of colored bell peppers are difficult to obtain in open field environments. Therefore, they are usually produced in protected environments such as high passively ventilated greenhouses.

Bell peppers are the best known sweet peppers. They are named for their rather bell-like shape. When young, the majority of bell peppers are a rich, bright green, but there are also yellow, orange, red, purple, brown, white and lilac bell peppers. The red bells are simply vine-ripened green bell peppers that, because they have ripened longer, are very sweet. Bell peppers vary from 3½ to 5½ inches long and from 2½ to 4 inches wide.

The subject goods include both organic and non-organic greenhouse bell peppers.

Duty Liability (Anti-dumping duties)

Country of Origin or Export: Netherlands

On October 16, 2015, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) rescinded its finding in respect of greenhouse bell peppers originating in or exported from the Netherlands.  As such, anti-dumping duty is no longer applicable to importations of greenhouse bell peppers as of this date.  Further information can be found on the CITT’s website at the following address: http://www.citt.gc.ca/en/node/7487.

Disclosure of Normal Values and Amounts of Subsidy

The liability for anti-dumping duty results from the proceedings conducted under SIMA and from the finding of the CITT. Information regarding the normal value of the subject goods in question and the amount of anti-dumping duty payable should be obtained from the exporter.

Duty Liability (Anti-dumping duties)

Country of Origin or Export: Ukraine

Effective on imports of subject goods released by the CBSA on or after 2010-07-16:

Information regarding the normal values of subject goods should be obtained from the exporter. For a list of exporters in Ukraine who currently have normal values, please consult the CBSA Notice of Conclusion of Re-investigation.

For importations of subject goods originating in/or exported from Ukraine for which the exporter has not been issued its own normal values, the anti-dumping duty is equal to 21.3% of the export price

Disclosure of Normal Values and Amounts of Subsidy

The liability for anti-dumping duty results from the proceedings conducted under SIMA and from the finding of the CITT. Information regarding the normal value of the subject goods in question and the amount of anti-dumping duty payable should be obtained from the exporter. Related information may be made available to importers on a need-to-know basis in accordance with the provisions of Memorandum D14-1-2, Disclosure of Normal Values, Export Prices, and Amounts of Subsidy Established Under the Special Import Measures Act to Importers.

For information on duty assessment, refer to the Guide for self-assessing SIMA duties.

Product information

Product Definition

The subject goods are defined as:

"Hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate not further manufactured than hot-rolled, heat-treated or not, in cut lengths, in widths from 24 inches (+/- 610 mm) to 152 inches (+/- 3,860 mm) inclusive, and thicknesses from 0.187 inches (+/- 4.75 mm) up to and including 3.0 inches (76.2 mm) (with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards), but excluding plate for use in the manufacture of pipe and tube (also known as skelp); plate in coil form, plate having a rolled, raised figure at regular intervals on the surface (also known as floor plate), originating in/or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil, Chinese Taipei, the Kingdom of Denmark, the Republic of Indonesia, the Italian Republic, Japan, and the Republic of Korea."

Additional Information

For greater certainty, the subject goods include steel plate which contains alloys greater than required by recognized industry standards provided that the steel does not meet recognized industry standards for an alloy-grade steel plate.

Hot-rolled carbon steel plate is manufactured to meet certain Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and/or American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) specifications, or equivalent specifications. CSA specification G40.21 covers steel for general construction purposes. In the ASTM specifications, for instance, specification A36M/A36 comprises structural plate; specification A572M/A572 comprises high-strength low-alloy steel plate; and specification A516M/A516 comprises pressure vessel quality plate. ASTM standards, such as A6/A6M and A20/A20M, recognize permissible variations for dimensions.

Duty Liabilities (Anti-dumping and countervailing duties)

Country of Origin or Export: Republic of India and the Russian Federation

On December 7, 2015, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping in respect of hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low alloy steel plate originating in or exported from the Republic of India and the Russian Federation and a final determination of subsidizing in respect of the aforementioned goods originating in or exported from the Republic of India. On the same day, the CBSA terminated the subsidizing investigation in respect of the aforementioned goods originating in or exported from the Russian Federation.

On January 6, 2016, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) found that the dumping of hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low alloy steel plate originating in or exported from the Republic of India and the Russian Federation and the subsidizing of the aforementioned goods originating in or exported from the Republic of India have not caused injury and are not threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Further information can be found on the CITT’s website at the following link: CITT - NQ-2015-001.

As such, anti-dumping and countervailing duties are no longer applicable to importations of hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low alloy steel plate originating in or exported from the Republic of India and the Russian Federation. All proceedings relating to the dumped and subsidized imports will be terminated, subsequent imports will not be subject to anti-dumping or countervailing duty and all provisional duty paid or security posted by importers will be returned.

Unitized wall modules (UWM): Dumping & Countervailing (China)

Product information

Product Definition

The subject goods are defined as:

"Unitized wall modules, with or without infill, including fully assembled frames, with or without fasteners, trims, cover caps, window operators, gaskets, load transfer bars, sunshades and anchor assemblies; excluding non-unitized building envelope systems such as stick systems and point-fixing systems originating in/or exported from the People's Republic of China."

Additional Information

Subject and like unitized wall modules are an aluminum-framed engineered fenestration product which forms the building envelope or facade for multi-story buildings. The two main styles of unitized wall modules building envelope systems are referred to as "curtainwall” and "window wall”.

Unitized wall modules are prefabricated segments of the building envelope that interlock with each other when installed. They are manufactured and shipped to customers’ building sites where they are installed by the customer or building contractor.

Installed unitized wall modules separate the outdoors from a building's indoor environment. The unitized wall modules are designed to resist extreme wind pressures, limit air infiltration and exfiltration, prevent water infiltration and meet heat loss and energy usage criteria.

The unitized wall modules are generally designed to meet any of the following or equivalent specifications:

  • air infiltration/exfiltration to a minimum 0.10 L/s/m2 (litres/second/square meter) when tested in accordance with American Society of Testing and Materials ("ASTM") Standard E283 at 0.3kPa (kilopascals) negative and positive pressure differential or equivalent proprietary or other internationally accepted standard;
  • no water infiltration when tested under static wind load in accordance with ASTM Standard E331 using 205 liters of water per square meter for 15 minutes at a minimum 0.3kPa negative pressure differential or equivalent proprietary or other internationally accepted standard; no water infiltration when tested under dynamic wind load in accordance to American Architectural Manufacturers Association ("AAMA") Standard 501.1 using 205 liters of water per square meter for 15 minutes at a minimum O.3kPa negative pressure differential or equivalent proprietary or other internationally accepted standard;
  • structural performance when tested to ASTM Standard E330 by uniform static air pressure at a minimum 0.5kPa for 60 seconds without permanent deformation or equivalent proprietary or other internationally accepted standard; or
  • thermal performance calculated in accordance with Canadian Standards Association ("CSA") Standard A440.2 to deliver a maximum of 3.0 W/m2C (watt/square meter/Celsius) for vision glass areas and 1.5 W/m2C for opaque areas (including framing) or equivalent proprietary or other internationally accepted standard.

Unitized wall modules usually consist of three principal components: extruded pre-finished (mill, alodine, painted or anodized) aluminum frame, hardware and infill materials.

The frame is the structural component that provides support for the infill materials. Hardware consists of fasteners, gaskets and sealants used to attach or sit between the frame and the infill materials. Infill materials include, but are not limited to, insulated glass units, monolithic glass, panels of various materials such as stone, granite or limestone, aluminum or galvanized steel back pans, insulation, terracotta tiles, ceramic tiles, thin veneer unitized bricks, louvers, grilles and photovoltaic panels. Patio or terrace doors and operable windows also are used as infill materials.

The subject goods do not include non-unitized systems such as "stick systems” or "point‑fixing systems”. Stick system building envelopes or facades are not subject goods as they are not unitized. Unlike unitized wall modules, stick systems are not interlocking and require installation of individual framing components on-site to form the supporting grid for those systems. Stick systems are shipped to the project site as vertical and horizontal member components which are then installed and connected piece by piece to form the structural grid for a stick system envelope or facade for buildings. Once the grid of support members is secured to the building structure, infill materials are installed from the exterior and/or interior side of the building.

Once a stick system building envelope or facade is completed, the appearance of the building exterior will be similar to a "unitized wall module” building envelope or facade. However, a stick system envelope or facade is differentiated from a "unitized wall module” building envelope or facade when viewed from the building interior, where the vertical frame members in the stick envelope or facade will be one-piece, while in the "unitized wall module” envelope or facade the vertical frame members will be two interlocked pieces.

Products referred to as "point-fixing glass wall/curtain wall” and "full-glass glass wall/curtain wall” use glass fins, patch fittings, cable supports and other means for structural support and do not rely on the extruded aluminum members used in the subject goods covered by this complaint. These cannot be "unitized” and are not subject goods.
