Ottawa, December 11, 2017

On December 8, 2017, 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 finding made on December 11, 2012, in Inquiry No. NQ 2012 003, concerning the dumping of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei, the Republic of India (India), the Sultanate of Oman (Oman), the Republic of Korea (Korea), the Kingdom of Thailand (Thailand), and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the subsidizing of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from India.

As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today initiated an investigation to determine, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, whether the expiry of the finding 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 May 7, 2018, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by May 22, 2018.

The subject goods are defined as carbon steel welded pipe, commonly identified as standard pipe, in the nominal size range from ½ inch up to and including 6 inches (12.7 mm to 168.3 mm in outside diameter) inclusive, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A53, ASTM A135, ASTM A252, ASTM A589, ASTM A795, ASTM F1083 or Commercial Quality, or AWWA C200-97 or equivalent specifications, including water well casing, piling pipe, sprinkler pipe and fencing pipe, but excluding oil and gas line pipe made to API specifications exclusively, originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei, India, Oman, Korea, Thailand, and the UAE.

The subject goods are normally imported into Canada under the following Harmonized System (HS) tariff classification numbers:

From January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2016

As of January 1, 2017

This listing of HS codes is for convenience of reference only. Refer to the product definition for authoritative details regarding the subject goods.

As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA forwarded questionnaires to the Canadian producer, importers, exporters and to the Government of India. Any Canadian producers, importers or exporters who have not received a letter from the CBSA who wish to provide a response to the questionnaire are advised to contact the officers identified below. Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by January 16, 2018.
