Imposition from 17.1.2014 and duty rates
The Canada Border Services Agency initiated an anti-dumping investigation on September 5, 2013, of certain hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low alloy steel plate imported from Brazil, Chinese Taipei, Denmark, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and Korea. According to the agency's the Statement of Reasons, on July 15, 2013, it received a written complaint from Essar Steel Algoma Inc., of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario (the complainant). This is the seventh in a series of complaints which have been filed by the Canadian industry in respect of certain steel plate since 1992.
On November 4, 2013 the Canadian International Trade Tribunaldetermined that there is a reasonable indication that the dumping of this product has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. The investigation therefore continues.
OnJanuary 17, 2014, the Canada Border Services Agency introduced provisional duties on the imports of the above mentioned steel products. The duty levels differ between countries and specific companies and range from 8.1 per cent to 65.2 per cent. A complete list can be found in the sources.
On April 17, 2014, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency made a final determination of dumping in this case. The Statement of Reasons is posted as shown in the sources.
