Anti-dumping

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal on August 19, 2013 renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty order against imports of carbon steel welded pipe from China. The original order was imposed on August 20, 2008, with the renewed order thus exceeding the five-year 'sunset' standard that generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTO agreements (i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).

Anti-dumping

On October 19, 2018 the Canada Border Services Agency determined that the expiry of the order concerning the dumping of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from China is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods into Canada; and the expiry of the order in respect of the subsidizing of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from China is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of the goods exported to Canada. The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its order is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than March 28, 2019.
