SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain carbon steel welded pipe — Decision

On August 13, 2012, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping in respect of certain carbon steel welded pipe, commonly identified as standard pipe, in the nominal size range from 1/2 inch up to and including 6 inches (12.7 mm to 168.3 mm in outside diameter) inclusive, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A53, ASTM A135, ASTM A252, ASTM A589, ASTM A795, ASTM F1083 or Commercial Quality, or AWWA C200-97 or equivalent specifications, including water well casing, piling pipe, sprinkler pipe and fencing pipe, but excluding oil and gas line pipe made to API specifications exclusively, originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei, the Republic of India, the Sultanate of Oman, the Republic of Korea, Thailand, the Republic of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates and made a preliminary determination of subsidizing in respect of the above-mentioned goods originating in or exported from the Republic of India, the Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

Since January 1, 2012, the subject goods are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

7306.30.10.14 
7306.30.10.19
7306.30.10.24  
7306.30.00.29 
7306.30.00.34
7306.30.00.39

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian producers of certain carbon steel welded pipe and will make an order or finding not later than 120 days after its receipt of the notice of the preliminary determinations of dumping and subsidizing.

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on subject goods that are released from the CBSA during the period commencing August 13, 2012, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigations are terminated, the day on which the Tribunal makes an order or finding, or the day an undertaking is accepted. The amount of provisional duty payable is not greater than the estimated margin of dumping and the estimated amount of subsidy. The Customs Act applies with respect to the accounting and payment of provisional duty. Therefore, failure to pay duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Customs Act.

Information

The Statement of Reasons regarding this decision will be issued within 15 days following the decision and will be available on the CBSA’s Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting Patrick Mulligan at 613-952-6720, or by fax at 613-948-4844.

SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain steel piling pipe — Decision

On August 2, 2012, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping and a preliminary determination of subsidizing in respect of carbon and alloy steel pipe piles, commonly identified as piling pipe, in outside diameter ranging from 3 1/2 inches up to and including 16 inches (8.9 cm to 40.6 cm) inclusive, in commercial quality and in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A252, ASTM A500, CSA G.40.21 or comparable specifications or standards, whether single, dual or multiple certified, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, excluding carbon steel welded pipe, in the nominal size range of 3 1/2 inches up to and including 6 inches (89 mm to 168.3 mm) in outside diameter, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A252 or equivalent specifications, other than carbon steel welded pipe in the nominal size range of 3 1/2 inches up to and including 6 inches, dual-stencilled to meet the requirements of both specification ASTM A252, Grades 1 to 3, and specification API 5L, with bevelled ends and in random lengths, for use as foundation piles.

Since January 1, 2012, the goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

7306.30.00.14 
7306.30.00.19
7306.30.00.24 
7306.30.00.29
7306.30.00.34
7306.30.00.39

On July 3, 2012, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) partially terminated its preliminary injury inquiry with respect to a subset of the goods (i.e. carbon steel welded pipe, in the nominal size range of 3 1/2 inches up to and including 6 inches (89 mm to 168.3 mm) in outside diameter, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A252 or equivalent specifications, other than carbon steel welded pipe in the nominal size range of 3 1/2 inches up to and including 6 inches, dual-stencilled to meet the requirements of both specification ASTM A252, Grades 1 to 3, and specification API 5L, with bevelled ends and in random lengths, for use as foundation piles), having concluded that the evidence does not disclose a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of those particular goods have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. As a result, the CBSA also partially terminated its investigations with respect to those specific goods.

On July 3, 2012, the Tribunal also determined that the evidence disclosed a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of the remaining subject steel piling pipe have caused or are threatening to cause injury. The Tribunal will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian producers of certain steel piling pipe, and will make an order or finding not later than 120 days after its receipt of the notice of the preliminary determinations of dumping and subsidizing.

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on the dumped and subsidized subject steel piling pipe originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China that are released from CBSA during the period commencing August 2, 2012, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigations are terminated, the day on which the Tribunal makes an order or finding, or the day an undertaking is accepted.

The amount of provisional duty payable is not greater than the estimated margin of dumping and the estimated amount of subsidy. The Customs Act applies with respect to the accounting and payment of provisional duty. Therefore, failure to pay duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Customs Act.
