CPF 2021 ER: Copper pipe fittings
Notice of initiation of expiry review investigation


On November 8, 2021, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT), pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its orders made on November 28, 2016, in Expiry Review No. RR‑2015‑003, concerning the dumping of certain copper pipe fittings originating in or exported from the United States, South Korea and China and the subsidizing of certain copper pipe fittings originating in or exported from China.

As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today initiated an expiry review investigation to determine, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, whether the expiry of the orders is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods. The CBSA will make a determination no later than April 7, 2022, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by April 21, 2022.

The subject goods are "Solder joint pressure pipe fittings and solder joint drainage, waste and vent pipe fittings, made of cast copper alloy, wrought copper alloy or wrought copper, for use in heating, plumbing, air conditioning and refrigeration applications, originating in/or exported from the United States of America, the Republic of Korea and the People's Republic of China."
