Case / File #: NQ-2016-001

This bulletin is to advise you that the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has issued a Final Determination of Dumping or Subsidizing relating to the following goods that you may currently be importing:

Description of Goods Usual HS Classification Country of Origin (or export)
Large Diameter Line Pipe from China and Japan --- Japan, China


Decision Details (see highlighted selection):

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 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. 
Preliminary Dumping or Subsidizing Margins have been determined as follows:


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 have been provided to the exporters which provided sufficient information for future shipments to Canada and these normal values 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.

What do you need to do: Continue to pay any applicable provisional duties imposed on the subject goods. If the inquiry determines injury has not occurred the investigation will be closed and all provisional duties will be automatically returned to the importer.
If you believe that your goods are not a subject of this investigation and you may have overpaid the provisional duty imposed, Cole can request a re-determination on your behalf.
