On September 20, 2016, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made final determinations of dumping with respect to certain welded large diameter carbon and alloy steel line pipe (large line pipe) originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China) and Japan, and subsidizing of large line pipe from China.

The goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System (HS) classification numbers:

Note that these HS codes are for convenience of reference only. Refer to the product definition for authoritative details regarding the subject goods.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by October 20, 2016.

Provisional duties will continue to apply on imports of subject goods from China and Japan until the date of the CITT’s order or finding.

Additional information about these investigations is contained in a Statement of Reasons, which will be available within 15 days on the CBSA’s website at: www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi.

Margins of Dumping and Amounts of Subsidy by Exporter

Exporters Margin of Dumping (% of Export Price) Amount of Subsidy (% of Export Price) Amount of Subsidy per MT (RMB)
China – All Exporters 95.0% 30.3% 1,657.11
Japan – Marubeni Steel 22.1%    
Japan – Metal One 43.1%    
Japan – Sumitomo Corporation 44.6%    
Japan – All Others 95.0%    

Note: The margins of dumping reported in the table above are the margins determined by the CBSA for purposes of the final determination of dumping. These margins do not reflect the amount of anti-dumping duty to be levied on future importations of dumped goods. In the event of an injury finding by the CITT, normal values and amounts of subsidy have been provided to the exporters which provided sufficient information for future shipments to Canada and these normal values and amounts of subsidy would come into effect the day after an injury finding. Imports from exporters/producers that did not provide sufficient information to the CBSA during the dumping and subsidy investigations and who are not listed in the table above will be subject to the All Other Exporters anti-dumping duty rate of 95.0%, expressed as a percentage of the export price, and countervailing duty rate of 1,657.11 RMB per MT, pursuant to a ministerial specification. Please consult the SIMA Self-Assessment Guide for more detailed information explaining how to determine the amount of SIMA duties owing.

Normally, normal values and amounts of subsidy will not be applied retroactively. However, these measures may be applied retroactively in cases where the parties have not advised the CBSA in a timely manner of substantial changes that affect values for SIMA purposes. Therefore, where substantial changes occur in prices, market conditions, costs associated with production and sales of the goods, or amounts of subsidy received by the manufacturer, the onus is on the concerned parties to advise the CBSA.
