Anti-dumping

Since 2011, the government of Canada has repeatedly renewed anti-dumping duties on pup joints from China.
On November 30, 2016, the Canada Border Services Agency renewed theexisting anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders against imports ofpup joints from China. The original order was imposed on April 10, 2012,with the renewed order thus exceeding the five-year 'sunset' standardthat generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTO agreements(i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and CountervailingMeasures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).
On September 12, 2011 Canada started an anti-dumping and anti subsidy investigation on certain pup joints coming from the People's Republic of China. On December 12, 2011 a provisionary ruling was adopted setting duties between 32.4 and 169% of the export price of the goods. Finally, on April 10, 2012 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced his ruling whereby the Canada Border service agency will levy an anti-dumping duty of 80.2 to 173.4% of the export price of the goods.
