CBSA starts dumping investigation on steel line pipe from Korea

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) launched an investigation into whether or not certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea is being sold at unfair prices in Canada.

The investigation is the result of a complaint filed by a manufacturer in Saskatchewan and from its affiliate in Alberta. The complainants allege that jobs, profits and productivity in Canada are being harmed by the sale of these goods.

In the next step of the investigations the Canadian International Trade Tribunal will begin its preliminary inquiry to determine whether the imports are actually harming Canadian producers, and will issue a decision by August 7, 2017.

Concurrently, the CBSA will investigate whether the imports are being sold in Canada at unfair and/or subsidized prices, and will make preliminary decisions by September 6, 2017.

Anti-dumping duties could eventually be applied to the goods under investigation.
