SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain copper tube — Decisions

On August 20, 2013, 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 copper tube originating in or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Hellenic Republic (Greece), the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and the United Mexican States and made a preliminary determination of subsidizing in respect of the above-mentioned goods originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The subject goods are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

  • 7411.10.00.10
  • 7411.10.00.20

The subject goods may also be classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

  • 7411.10.00.31
  • 7411.10.00.39

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian producers of certain copper tube 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 on August 20, 2013, 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 these decisions will be issued within 15 days following the decisions and will be available on the CBSA’s Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting Nalong Manivong at 613-960-6096 or Kevin Lambertsen at 613-954-1641, or by fax at 613-948-4844.
