Anti-dumping

In response to a complaint filed by Tenaris Canada (Calgary, Alberta) and Evraz North America Inc. (Regina, Saskatchewan), on July 21, 2014, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated anti-dumping investigations of certain oil country tubular goods originating in or exported from Taiwan, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam, and countervailing duty investigations of these products from India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine and Vietnam. 
On December 3, 2014, Canada terminated the subsidy investigation for Korea and Turkey because the subject goods from these countries were found to be subsidized, but the amounts of subsidy were insignificant.
On the same day, CBSA found in its preliminary investigations dumping by Taiwan, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine and Vietnam, and subsidization by India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Ukraine and Vietnam.
On April 2, 2015 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) found that the volumes of subsidized goods were negligible, and thus terminated the countervailing duty inquiry with respect to India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. The CITT also found that dumping has not caused injury, but is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. This finding will thus result in the imposition of anti-dumping duties.
