Ottawa, August 29, 2017

On August 28, 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 November 30, 2012, in Inquiry No. NQ 2012-002, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain steel piling pipe originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).

As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today initiated an expiry review investigation (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 January 25, 2018, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by February 9, 2018.

The subject goods are carbon and alloy steel pipe piles, commonly identified as piling pipe, in outside diameter ranging from 3½ inches up to and including 16 inches (8.9 cm to 40.6 cm) inclusive, in commercial quality and in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A252, ASTM A500, CSA G.40.21 or comparable specifications or standards, whether single, dual or multiple certified, originating in or exported from China, excluding carbon steel welded pipe, in the nominal size range of 3½ inches up to and including 6 inches (89 mm to 168.3 mm) in outside diameter, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A252 or equivalent specifications, other than carbon steel welded pipe in the nominal size range of 3½ inches up to and including 6 inches, dual-stencilled to meet the requirements of both specification ASTM A252, Grades 1 to 3, and specification API 5L, with bevelled ends and in random lengths, for use as foundation piles.

The goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System (HS) classification numbers:
