Notice of normal value review: Hot-rolled carbon steel plate 7 (PLA7 2023 UP2)


The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today initiated a normal value review to update all of the normal values and export prices applicable to hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate exported to Canada from South Korea by POSCO.

The review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT’s) order issued on , in Expiry Review No. RR-2019-001, respecting the dumping of certain hot-rolled carbon steel plate from Brazil, Denmark, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and South Korea, in accordance with the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).

The product definition and the applicable tariff classification numbers of the goods subject to the CITT’s order are contained in Appendix 1.

Should the exporter decide to participate in this review, it is required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s dumping request for information (RFI) by . The exporter will be considered co-operative if the requested information is complete, submitted on time and the exporter permits verification of the data. If the exporter does not provide a complete response to the RFI by the deadline date, any previous normal values issued to the exporter will be revoked and normal values for subject goods exported by the exporter will be determined pursuant to a ministerial specification by advancing the export price of the goods by 59.7%.

A schedule for this review is available. The CBSA will close the record for this review at any time during the proceeding, without advance notice, once it has been determined that sufficient information has been received to make a decision. Therefore, interested parties are encouraged to provide any and all information that they feel is relevant to this review to the CBSA as early as possible. The CBSA will update the website to announce that the record has been closed. Interested parties will have seven days from the close of the record to file case arguments concerning the review and 14 days from the close of the record to file reply submissions in respect of the case arguments.

The normal values and export prices determined as part of this review will apply to subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of the conclusion of the normal value review, and may be applied to any requests for re-determination that have not been processed prior to the conclusion of the review, regardless of the date that the requests were received.

Where applicable, the normal values and export prices determined as a result of this review may be applied retroactively. Exporters with normal values are required to promptly inform the CBSA in writing of changes to domestic prices, costs, market conditions or terms of sale associated with the production and sales of the goods. All parties are cautioned that where there are increases in domestic prices, and/or costs as noted above, the export price for sales to Canada should be increased accordingly to ensure that any sale made to Canada is not only above the normal value but at or above selling prices and full costs and profit of the goods in the exporter’s domestic market. If exporters did not properly notify the CBSA of any such changes, did not adjust export prices accordingly, or did not provide the information required to make any necessary adjustments to normal values and export prices, retroactive assessments of anti-dumping duty may be warranted. Please refer to the CBSA’s re-investigation and normal value review policy (Memorandum D14-1-8) for details.
