Margins of Dumping and Amounts of Subsidy by Exporter
Country of origin or export Margins of dumping expressed as a percentage of export price Amounts of subsidy expressed as a percentage of export price Amounts of subsidy per piece
Shandong Nine-Ring Petroleum Machinery Co., Ltd. 149.9% 21.0% 28.78 RMB
Shandong Shouguang Kunlong Petroleum Machinery Co., Ltd. 141.1% 24.4% 31.21 RMB
Zibo Hongyang Weatherford Oilfield Equipment Co., Ltd. 100.4% 2.8% 5.81 RMB
All Other Exporters 149.9% 68.1% 119.54 RMB

Note: The margins of dumping reported in the table above are the margins determined by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for purposes of the final determination of dumping. These margins do not reflect the anti-dumping duty to be levied on future importations of dumped goods. In the event of an injury finding by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, normal values have been provided to the exporters which provided sufficient information for future shipments to Canada and these normal values would come into effect the day after the injury finding. Information regarding normal values of the subject goods should be obtained from the exporter. Imports of subject goods from exporters/producers that did not provide sufficient 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 pursuant to a ministerial specification.

As reported in the table above, the amounts of subsidy are the amounts (expressed as a percentage of export price) 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 from China, which will be based on the specific amounts of subsidy, per piece, converted into Canadian dollars.

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.
