Following a January 20017 decision by the World Trade Organization (WTO) which found certain aspects of a Canadian dumping finding on pipe from Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) to be inconsistent with the WTO Anti Dumping Agreement, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated a review of its finding.
On September 29, 2017 the CBSA announced its decision to continue the final determination of dumping regarding certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported to Canada Taiwan with the following amendments: the CBSA terminated the dumping investigation regarding certain carbon steel welded pipe exported to Canada from Taiwan by Chung Hung Steel Corporation and Shin Yang Steel Co. Ltd.; and revised the margins of dumping for subject goods originating in or exported from Taiwan by “all other exporters”.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its review into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make a decision by December 8, 2017.
For now, as a result of the CBSA’s decision to terminate the dumping investigation regarding two Taiwanese exporters, imports of subject goods from these exporters are no longer subject to anti-dumping duty.
If the Tribunal reaffirms its threat of injury finding, certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei will continue to be subject to anti-dumping duty. If the CITT replaces its injury finding with a negative finding, all proceedings will be terminated. In such circumstances, imports will no longer be subject to anti-dumping duty.< Return
