NOTE: The margins of dumping reported in this table are the margins determined by the CBSA for purposes of the final determination of dumping.  These margins do not reflect the amount of anti-dumping duty to be levied on future importations of dumped goods.  In the event of an injury finding by the Tribunal, normal values have been provided to the co-operating exporters for future shipments to Canada and these normal values would come into effect the day after an injury finding.  Information regarding normal values of the subject goods should be obtained from the exporter.  Imports from exporters that did not provide complete information to the CBSA during the dumping investigation and who are not listed in the table above will be subject to the all other exporters anti-dumping duty rate of 59.7%, expressed as a percentage of the export price, pursuant to a ministerial specification.  Please check the SIMA Self-Assessment Guide for more detailed information explaining how to determine the amount of SIMA duties owing.
