AE 2021 UP1: Aluminum extrusions
Notice of normal value review
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today initiated a normal value review (review) to update the normal values, export prices and amount of subsidy applicable to certain aluminum extrusions exported from the People’s Republic of China (China) by Fujian Fenan Aluminium Co., Ltd.
The review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) order issued on January 13, 2020, in Expiry Review No. RR‑2018‑008, respecting the dumping and subsidizing of certain aluminum extrusions originating in or exported from China, in accordance with the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).
The product definition and the applicable tariff classification numbers of the goods subject to the CITT’s order are contained in Appendix 1 (subject goods).
Should the exporter decide to participate in this review, it is required to provide complete and accurate responses to the CBSA’s Dumping and Subsidy Request for Information (RFI) by July 5, 2021. The exporter will be considered cooperative if the requested information is complete, submitted on time and the exporter permits verification of the data.
If the exporter does not provide complete responses to the Dumping and Subsidy RFIs by the deadline date, the normal values, export prices and amount of subsidy applicable to the subject goods will be determined pursuant to a ministerial specification under SIMA.
The schedule for this normal value review is now available. The CBSA will close the record for this review at any time during the proceeding, without advance notice, once it has been determined that sufficient information has been received to make a decision. Therefore, interested parties are encouraged to provide any and all information that they feel is relevant to this review to the CBSA as early as possible. The CBSA will update the website to announce that the record has been closed. Interested parties will have seven days from the close of record to file case arguments concerning the review and 14 days from the close of record to file reply submissions in respect of the case arguments.
The normal values, export prices and amount of subsidy determined as a result of this review will be applied to settle the request for re‑determination on hand and may be applied to any requests for re‑determination of importations of subject goods that have not been processed. The normal values, export prices and amount of subsidy determined for the exporter will also be effective for the subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of the conclusion of the review.
The normal values determined as a result of this review may be applied retroactively where the following conditions are met. Exporters with normal values are required to promptly inform the CBSA in writing of changes to domestic prices, costs, market conditions or terms of sale associated with the production and sales of the goods. All parties are cautioned that where there are increases in domestic prices, and/or costs as noted above, the export price for sales to Canada should be increased accordingly to ensure that any sale made to Canada is not only above the normal value but at or above selling prices and full costs and profit of the goods in the exporter’s domestic market. If exporters did not properly notify the CBSA of any such changes, did not adjust export prices accordingly, or did not provide the information required to make any necessary adjustments to normal values and export prices, retroactive assessments of anti ‑ dumping duties may be warranted. Please refer to Memorandum D14‑1‑8.
