AE-001 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA reviewed an accounting entry for the importation of certain aluminum extrusions and assessed both anti-dumping and countervailing duties. Upon appeal, it was claimed that the goods met the following exclusion:

Aluminum extrusions produced from a 6063 alloy type with a T5 temper designation and forming part of the Vario System[trademark] 20, 30, 40, 45 and 60 series line of profiles, or equivalent, having a length of either 4.5 or 5.8 m and a straightness tolerance of +/-1.5 mm or less per 6.0 m of length, for use in those parts of mechanical systems and automated machinery, such as gantry systems and conveyors, where precise linear movement is required.

Reason

The information provided was unclear regarding the straightness tolerance and did not include any evidence regarding the end use of the goods. As the goods did not meet all the criteria of the exclusion, they are not excluded from the finding.

AE-002 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The importer’s position was that the goods were not subject as they were “aluminum extrusions produced from a 6063 alloy type with a T6 temper designation”, and that this initial prototype order was priced based on the cost of the aluminum only.

Reason

The exclusion for aluminum extrusions for use in window frames is worded as follows:

Aluminum extrusions produced from a 6063 alloy type with either a T5 or a T6 temper designation, having a length of between 20 and 33 ft. (between 6.10 and 10.06 m), with a powder coat finish, which finish is certified to meet the American Architectural Manufacturers Association AAMA 2603 standard (“Voluntary Specification, Performance Requirements and Test Procedures for Pigmented Organic Coatings on Aluminum Extrusions and Panels”), for use in window frames.

The goods do not meet the minimum length threshold of 20 feet (6.1 meters). In addition, there was no evidence of alloy type or powder coat finish, and the goods were for sunroom walls and roofs. Therefore, the goods do not meet the terms of the exclusion.

The pricing of the goods is not relevant to subjectivity.

AE-003 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on certain aluminum products originating in China. The importer presented documentation showing that the aluminum goods are not produced via an extrusion process but via a die casting process.

Reason

Aluminum joints produced via a die casting process are not subject goods.

Allowed
$5,000 to $25,000
AE-004 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions originating in China. The importer argued that the goods are shower enclosures, which are not subject to the finding.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the imported goods can be assembled into complete shower enclosures. As such, the goods are not covered by the definition of the subject goods.

Allowed
Over $25,000
AE-005 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions originating in China. The importer argued that the goods are an irrigation piping assembly and should not subject to the finding.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the imported goods can be assembled into one complete irrigation system for a 67 acre farm. As such, the goods are not covered by the definition of the subject goods.

Allowed
Over $25,000
AE-006 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions originating in China. The importer argued that the goods are solar panel mounts and should not subject to the finding.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the imported goods are essentially imported in bulk. The aluminum plates are not fabricated via an extrusion process therefore they are not subject to the finding. However, the clamps are fabricated via an extrusion process and still retain the nature and physical characteristics of an aluminum extrusion. As such, the clamps are covered by the definition of the subject goods.

Allowed in part
Over $25,000
AE-007 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions originating in China. The importer argued that the goods are not subject to the finding.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the goods are aluminum trims originating in China. The diagram of the goods provided with the appeal shows the measurements of an aluminum profile, confirming that the goods meet the measurement criterion of the product description. The samples provided further indicate that the goods fall within the product description of the finding and no information was provided to show otherwise.

AE-008 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions originating in China. The importer argued that the goods are not subject to the finding as they are further worked, made from a 6063 alloy type with a T5 temper designation and extruded using a specially engineered tool die.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the goods are hollow aluminum extrusions used to create LED light fixtures. The goods were not further worked beyond the fabrication and finishing processes included in the product definition. The 6063 alloy type is one that falls within the alloy types included in the product definition. The finding includes custom-shaped extrusions therefore the fact that the aluminum was extruded through a specially engineered tool die does not exclude it from the finding. As a result, the goods are subject to the finding.

AE-011 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions. The importer argued that the good is not subject to the finding as it is a finished good.

Reason

A review of the documentation and the sample submitted demonstrates that the good is an aluminum enclosure used to house a wireless modem. The enclosure no longer possesses the nature and physical characteristic of an aluminum extrusion by virtue of a permanently attached plastic insert. As such, the good is not subject to the finding.

Allowed
$5,000 to $25,000
AE-012 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on two importations of aluminum extrusions. The importer argued that the goods are not subject to the finding as they are not raw aluminum extrusions.

Reason

A review of the documentation and the samples submitted demonstrates that two of the aluminum tubes have not been further worked beyond the fabrication and finishing processes described in the product definition. As such, they are subject to the finding.

The third tube has been further worked beyond the fabrication and finishing processes described in the product definition by virtue of the threaded tube welded to the end of it at a 90 degree angle. It is therefore not subject to the finding.

Allowed in part

AE-015 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on three importations of aluminum extrusions. The importer argued that the goods are not subject to the finding as they are finished goods that have been manufactured beyond being an aluminum extrusion.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the aluminum extrusions are two types of slot nuts; one with a hole threaded into it and the other has a stainless steel ball bearing inserted into a separate hole in addition to the threaded hole. The slot nut with only the threaded hole is subject to the finding, while the slot nut with the stainless steel ball bearing permanently attached is not subject to the finding.

N/A
AE-019 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on two importations of aluminum extrusions. The importer argued that the goods are not subject to the finding as they are incomplete unassembled windows that were misclassified and declared as individual parts; that these are finished goods where two or more aluminum components are permanently joined together with non-aluminum parts.

Reason

The decisive factor in determining whether goods are subject to the finding is the production process undergone in the fabrication of the goods and the form the goods take at the time of importation. The classification of the goods, their end-use and the designated name of an imported product are immaterial to this determination.

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that there is too little to distinguish between the imported goods and those at issue under the Tribunal appeal AP-2011-027 (Aluminart), which was dismissed. The imported profiles have not been processed or manufactured to such an extent that they no longer possess the nature and physical characteristics of an aluminum extrusion. As a result, the goods are subject to the finding.

AE-030 Aluminium extrusions
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA assessed anti-dumping and countervailing duty on an importation of aluminum extrusions. The importer argued that the goods had been misclassified and met the following exclusion:

aluminum extrusions produced from either a 6063 or a 6005 alloy type with a T6 temper designation, in various lengths, with a powder coat finish on both the interior and the exterior surfaces of the extrusion, which finish is certified to meet the American Architectural Manufacturers Association AAMA 2603 standard, "Voluntary Specification, Performance Requirements and Test Procedures for Pigmented Organic Coatings on Aluminum Extrusions and Panels,” for use in exterior railing systems

Reason

The issue of subjectivity is based on the definition of subject goods contained in the Tribunal finding, which in this case does not include specific tariff classification(s).

In reviewing the supporting documents received with this request and in accordance with the exclusion the importer failed to provide evidence that the imported goods met both the end use and finish provisions contained within the exclusion.

As the goods did not meet the criteria of the exclusion, they are not excluded from the finding.

DWP-001 Dry wheat pasta
Decision summary

Justification for request

The CBSA issued a partial refund of the provisional duties paid on yellow and roasted vermicelli originating in and exported from Turkey.

The importer contends that the Tribunal’s finding should be limited to large companies who import vast quantities at dumped prices and not to small importations, especially for products that are ostensibly not produced in Canada.

Reason

The documentation submitted demonstrated that the imported goods are subject to the finding.

A finding by the Tribunal applies to all goods that fall within the product definition, no matter who the importer is or the size of the importation. Only goods that are specifically excluded by the Tribunal can be exempt from anti-dumping and countervailing duties. When certain goods cannot be obtained in Canada, the onus falls on the importer to request an exclusion from the Tribunal.

A correction to the export price due to a clarification of the terms of sale has resulted in a partial refund of the anti-dumping duty paid.

The importer presented documentation claiming that the filter press plates are components/parts of a filter press waste water filtration system and therefore not subject to the finding.

Reason

The documentation submitted demonstrated that the imported goods were filter press plates for use in a filter press waste water and filtration system. Filter presses are considered manufactured equipment components that are primarily mechanical rather than structural. Filter plates are mechanical components/parts of filter press machines and are not subject to the SIMA measure in force.

FAS-007 Fasteners
Decision summary

Justification for request

Anti-dumping duty was assessed on carbon steel screws originating in Chinese Taipei and exported from the United States. The importer’s position was that the goods (assorted wood screws contained within a carrying case) were not subject as they were packaged with a pocket hole jig system as part of a tool promotion and not imported under their own tariff item.

Reason

The CBSA, in determining whether or not goods are subject to a Tribunal finding, relies on the definition of subject goods contained within the finding, regardless of tariff classification. Additionally, the CBSA considers the nature of the product as opposed to how a product is labelled or portrayed.

Paragraph 30 in the Statement of reasons for appeal no. AP-2008-006 provided guidance with regards to the functionality of goods packaged together and the separation of these goods for the purpose of applying anti-dumping duties under SIMA. The Tribunal is of the view that the parts must be integral to the functional purpose of a system and that separating the parts for the purpose of applying anti-dumping duties must not deprive the system of its functionality.

In this instance the screw kit included with the joinery jig system, being extraneous to the functionality of the jig system itself, is gratuitous and, as such, is considered a separate good.

N/A
SG-001 Steel grating
Decision summary

Justification for request

The importer’s position was that the goods (cut and customized steel grating originating in the People’s Republic of China i.e., fabricated grating) were not subject as they formed part of steel structures, were classified under the Customs Tariff as steel structures, and thus had lost the characteristics of gratings.

Reason

Paragraph 44 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) order RR-2015-001 states “Logically, there is a point at which grating loses its identity as grating, for example, after it is incorporated into a complex industrial structure”. The Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines “incorporate” as “to unite or work into something already existent so as to form an indistinguishable whole”. This terminology is specific and distinct from other terms such as “for use in” or “part of”.

Whether or not goods are subject to a finding is based on their state or condition at the time of importation. In this case, although the imported gratings were fabricated for use in accompanying steel structures, at the time of importation the gratings were in their own separate containers, and were not physically attached, joined or wrought into a structure. They therefore had the characteristics of gratings. They were also invoiced separately at a price different than the steel structures. The Tribunals description of fabricated gratings includes finishing such as kick plates, cut-outs, nosing and welding. The use of the terms “e.g.” and “for example” indicates that this list of finishing is not exhaustive. Thus the fact that some of the grating pieces had additional finishing is not determinative.

The Customs Tariff and the principles identified in the General Interpretive Rules are not determinative of the issue of whether or not goods constitute subject goods. Rather, the question of subjectivity is based on the definition of subject goods contained in the Tribunal finding, which in this case does not include specific tariff classification(s).

SG-002 Steel grating
Decision summary

Justification for request

The importer’s position was that the goods are expanded metal grating comprised of a single piece of sheet slit and expanded and not consisting of welding or joining of multiple pieces of steel, and therefore excluded from the Tribunal’s finding.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the imported goods are metal grating consisting of multiple welded pieces originating in and exported from the People’s Republic of China. These welded metal grating products are therefore subject to the SIMA measure in force.

SG-003 Steel grating
Decision summary

Justification for request

The importer’s position was that the goods are metal L brackets and angle bars that had been incorrectly described as bar gratings, and are therefore excluded from the Tribunal’s finding.

Reason

A review of the documentation submitted demonstrates that the imported goods are metal framing products consisting of cut and welded pieces of 1.5 m coil carbon steel and thick round cross bars originating in and exported from the People’s Republic of China. These welded metal framing products are therefore not subject to the SIMA measure in force.
