FISC 2020 SP
Certain Fabricated Industrial Steel Components
Notice of Extension of Scope Proceeding

Ottawa, March 20, 2020

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today extended the time period to make a scope ruling in a scope proceeding respecting certain fabricated industrial steel components (FISC) from China, South Korea, and Spain.

The scope proceeding is the result of an application filed with the CBSA by Enerkem Inc. (Montreal, Quebec), a potential importer of the goods that are the subject of the application. The scope proceeding will establish whether or not Specialized Prefabricated Process Units are subject to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s injury finding issued on May 25, 2017, in Inquiry No. NQ‑2016‑004, concerning the dumping of certain FISC from China, South Korea (excluding those goods exported by Hanmaek Heavy Industries Co. Ltd.) and Spain (excluding those goods exported by Cintasa, S.A.), and the subsidizing of FISC from China.

The Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) provides that, under normal circumstances, the scope proceeding shall be completed within 120 days of the date of initiation. However, due to the complexity and novelty of the issues presented by the scope proceeding, the period has been extended to 210 days, pursuant to subsection 66(2) of SIMA.

Consequently, the decision to issue a scope ruling or terminate the scope proceeding will be made on or before August 14, 2020.
