SC 2018 ER
Certain Seamless Casing
Notice of Initiation of Expiry Review Investigation

Ottawa, January 22, 2018

On January 19, 2018, 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 11, 2013, in Expiry Review No. RR-2012-002, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain seamless casing originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) 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 June 21, 2018, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by July 6, 2018.

The subject goods are seamless carbon or alloy steel oil and gas well casing, whether plain end, bevelled, threaded or threaded and coupled, heat-treated or non-heat-treated, meeting American Petroleum Institute (API) specification 5CT, with an outside diameter not exceeding 11.75 inches (298.5 mm), in all grades, including proprietary grades, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The subject goods are normally imported into Canada under the following tariff classification numbers:

As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA forwarded questionnaires to Canadian producers, importers, exporters and to the Government of China.

Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by February 28, 2018.
