Anti-dumping

On July 20, 2018 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an antidumping investigation of certain carbon steel welded pipe imported from Pakistan, the Philippines, Turkey, and Vietnam. The investigation follows a complaint filed by Novamerican Steel Inc. The goods in question are usually classified under the following tariff classification numbers: 7306.30.00.10, 7306.30.00.20, and 7306.30.00.30.

On September 18, 2018, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) made a preliminary determination that there is evidence that discloses a reasonable indication that the dumping of CSWP from the named countries has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

On October 18, 2018, CBSA made a preliminary determination of dumping of CSWP from Pakistan, the Philippines, Turkey and Vietnam and provisional duty was imposed on imports of dumped goods that are of the same description as any goods to which the preliminary determination applies.

On January 16, 2019, the CBSA made a final determination of dumping of carbon steel welded pipe from Pakistan, the Philippines, Turkey, and Vietnam. The CITT is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry.

On March 4, 2019 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal found that these imports have caused injury to the domestic industry. Therefore, the Canada Border Services Agency will impose definitive anti-dumping duties on imports of the subject goods.
