Notice of expedited review: Line pipe 2 (LP2 2022 XR)
In response to a request for an expedited review from Histeel Co. Ltd., the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today initiated an expedited review of certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe (line pipe) originating in or exported from South Korea by Histeel Co. Ltd., pursuant to subsection 13.2(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).
This expedited review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) finding of injury issued on January 4, 2018, respecting the dumping of line pipe from South Korea, in accordance with SIMA.
The product definition and the applicable tariff classification numbers of the goods subject to the CITT’s finding are contained in Appendix 1 (subject goods).
Should an exporter decide to participate in this expedited review, it is required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s Dumping request for information (RFI) by November 30, 2022. 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 an exporter does not provide a complete response to the RFIs by the deadline date, normal values and export prices for subject goods exported by the exporter will be determined pursuant to a ministerial specification by advancing the export price of the goods from South Korea by a rate of 88.1%.
The schedule for this expedited review is now available. The CBSA will close the record for this expedited review once it has been determined that sufficient information has been received to make a decision. 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 submissions concerning the expedited review.
Normal values and export prices established during this review will apply to the goods in question. Further, normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy established during this review will also apply to subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of the conclusion of the expedited review. The normal values and export prices determined as a result of this review may be applied to any requests for re-determination of importations of subject goods that have not been processed prior to the conclusion of the expedited review, regardless of the date that the requests were received.
