SIMA - New Final Determination respecting certain liquid dielectric transformers from the Republic of Korea

On March 6, 2014, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (President) made a new final determination, pursuant to paragraph 41.1(1)(a) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), that liquid dielectric transformers having a top power handling capacity equal to or exceeding 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea had been dumped.

The results of the dumping investigation reveal that 100% of the goods exported to Canada during the period of investigation (POI) were dumped by a weighted average margin of 12.7%, expressed as a percentage of export price.

This decision stems from a decision of the Federal Court of Appeal made on December 6, 2013, that, as a result of an application for judicial review, set aside the original final determination made on October 22, 2012, and referred the matter back to the President for reconsideration.  The President has reconsidered the matter and, on this date, made a new final determination of dumping.

The subject goods are usually classified under the following Harmonized System (HS) classification code:

  • 8504.23.00.00

Unassembled or incomplete subject goods may also be imported under the following HS codes:

  • 8504.90.90.10
  • 8504.90.90.82
  • 8504.90.90.90

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

As a result of the new final determination, anti-dumping duty will be re-imposed on imports of subject goods.  As well, the amount of anti-dumping duty on shipments released from customs during the provisional period from December 6, 2013, to March 6, 2014, will be finalized.

Additional information about this investigation is contained in a Statement of Reasons, which will be available within 15 days on the CBSA’s Web site:
