ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On August 24, 2009, the Canada Border Services Agency initiated an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of certain oil country tubular goods originating in China.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7304.2900, 7304.3910, 7304.5910, 7306.2910 and 7306.2990.
The complaint was lodged by Tenaris Canada (Calgary, Alberta), Evraz Inc. NA Canada (Regina, Saskatchewan) and Lakeside Steel Corporation (Welland, Ontario).
On November 23, 2009, the Canada Border Services Agency made preliminary determination of subsidizing in respect of oil country tubular goods, made of carbon or alloy steel (welded or seamless, heat-treated or not heat-treated, regardless of end finish, having an outside diameter from 60.3 mm to 339.7 mm, in all grades) originating in China. Drill pipe and seamless casing up to 298.5 mm in outside diameter are excluded from this determination (these products are already subject to a finding by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal). A provisional countervailing duty is now payable. The rate of the duty ranges from 0.33% to 15%, depending on the company.
On February 22, 2010, the Canada Border Services Agency made final determination of subsidizing. The provisional duty remains enforced until the Canadian International Trade Tribunal makes an order or finding.
On March 23, 2010, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal issued its findings. It found that subsidizing has caused injury (except for pup-joints). Therefore a definitive duty was imposed. The amount of the duty ranges from RMB 85.14 to RMB 4070.00 per metric ton (USD 12.47 to USD 595.90 per metric ton), depending on the company.
On June 30, 2014, the Canada Border Services Agency initiated a sunset review of the countervailing duty on imports of certain oil country tubular goods originating in China imposed on March 23, 2010. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7304.2900, 7304.3900, 7304.5900 and 7306.2900.
On October 24, 2014, the Canada Border Services Agency completed the review and found that the revocation of the duty is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of certain oil country tubular goods originating in or exported from China.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal will issue its decision on whether the revocation is likely to result in injury or retardation to the Canadian industry no later than March 20, 2015. On 23 March 2015, the CITT reached an affirmative decision and thereby extended the imposition of the described duty.
