Cold-Rolled Steel
Notice of Final Determinations

Ottawa, October 31, 2018

On October 31, 2018, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made final determinations of dumping and subsidizing with respect to certain cold-rolled steel in coils or cut lengths from China, South Korea and Vietnam.

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

Note that the tariff classification number is for convenience of reference only. Refer to the product definition for authoritative details regarding the subject goods.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by December 21, 2018.

Provisional duties will continue to apply on imports of subject goods until the date of the CITT’s order or finding.

Additional information about these investigations is contained in a Statement of Reasons, which will be available within 15 days on the CBSA’s website at:

Margins of Dumping and Amounts of Subsidy
Country of Origin or Export Margin of Dumping* Amount of Subsidy* Amount of Subsidy per Metric Tonne
China – All Exporters 91.9% 11.6% 506 Chinese Renminbi
South Korea – All Exporters 53.0% 11.3% 86,733 South Korean Won
Vietnam – All Exporters 99.2% 6.5% 2,607,988 Vietnamese Dong

*As a percentage of export price.

Note: The margins of dumping reported in the table above are the margins determined by the CBSA for purpose of the final determination of dumping. In the event of an injury finding by the CITT, the dumping duty for future exports of subject goods will be subject to these anti-dumping duty rates pursuant to a ministerial specification.

As reported in the table above, the amounts of subsidy (as a percentage of export price) are the amounts determined by the CBSA for purposes of the final determination of subsidizing. These amounts do not reflect the countervailing duty to be levied on future importations of subsidized goods, which will be based on the specific amounts of subsidy, per metric tonne, converted into Canadian dollars, as shown in the table above.

Normally, normal values will not be applied retroactively. However, this measure may be applied retroactively in cases where the parties have not advised the CBSA in a timely manner of substantial changes that affect values for SIMA purposes. Therefore, where substantial changes occur in prices, market conditions, costs associated with production and sales of the goods, the onus is on the concerned parties to advise the CBSA.

Please consult the SIMA Self-Assessment Guide for more detailed information explaining how to determine the amount of SIMA duties owing.
