Oil Country Tubular Goods
Notice of Initiation of Expiry Review Investigation

Ottawa, February 6, 2020

On February 5, 2020, 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 order made on March 2, 2015, in Expiry Review No. RR-2014-003, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain oil country tubular goods originating or exported from the People’s Republic of 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 order 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 July 3, 2020, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by July 17, 2020.

The subject goods are “certain oil country tubular goods including, in particular, casing and tubing, made of carbon or alloy steel, welded or seamless, heat-treated or not heat-treated, regardless of end finish, having an outside diameter from 2 3/8 inches to 13 3/8 inches (60.3 mm to 339.7 mm), meeting or supplied to meet API specification 5CT or equivalent standard, in all grades, excluding drill pipe, seamless casing up to 11 3/4 inches (298.5 mm) in outside diameter, pup joints, welded or seamless, heat-treated or not heat-treated, in lengths of up to 3.66 m (12 feet), and coupling stock originating in or exported from China.”

The subject goods are normally classified under the following tariff classification numbers:

As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA has solicited responses to questionnaires from Canadian producers, importers and exporters/foreign producers and to the Government of China.

Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by March 16, 2020.
