SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain steel plate — Decision

On January 17, 2014, 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 steel plate from the Federative Republic of Brazil, Chinese Taipei, the Kingdom of Denmark, the Republic of Indonesia, the Italian Republic, Japan, and the Republic of Korea.

The subject goods are usually, but not exclusively, classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

  • 7208.51.00.10
  • 7208.51.00.91
  • 7208.51.00.92
  • 7208.51.00.93
  • 7208.51.00.94
  • 7208.51.00.95
  • 7208.52.00.10
  • 7208.52.00.91
  • 7208.52.00.92
  • 7208.52.00.93
  • 7208.52.00.94
  • 7208.52.00.95

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

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on subject goods that are released from the CBSA during the period commencing January 17, 2014, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigation is 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. 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 Barbara Chouinard at 613-954-7399 or Jason Huang at 613-954-7388, or by fax at 613-948-4844.
