FISC 2018 SP
Certain Fabricated Industrial Steel Components
Notice of Initiation of Scope Proceeding

Ottawa, July 26, 2018

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated a scope proceeding on July 26, 2018, under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) respecting certain fabricated industrial steel components (FISC) from China, South Korea and Spain. This is the CBSA’s first scope proceeding since they were enacted into law as a result of changes to the SIMA and the Special Import Measures Regulations that came into force on April 26, 2018.

The scope proceeding is the result of an application filed with the CBSA by Woodfibre LNG Limited (Vancouver, British Columbia), a potential importer of the goods that are the subject of the application. The scope proceeding will establish whether or not liquefied natural gas (LNG) modules are subject to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s injury finding issued on May 25, 2017, in Inquiry No. NQ 2016 004, concerning the dumping of certain FISC from China, South Korea (excluding those goods exported by Hanmaek Heavy Industries Co. Ltd.) and Spain (excluding those goods exported by Cintasa, S.A.), and the subsidizing of FISC from China.

A notice of the conclusion and copy of the Statement of Reasons, which will provide more details about this proceeding, will be available on the CBSA’s website at on or before November 23, 2018.
