CANADA BORDER SERVICES AGENCY

SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Gypsum board — Decision

On September 6, 2016, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping concerning certain gypsum board originating in or exported from the United States of America, imported into Canada for use or consumption in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

The goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System number:

  • 6809.11.00.10

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Western Canadian industry and will make an order or finding no 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 September 6, 2016, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigation is terminated, the day on which the CITT 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 Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting either Mr. Richard Pragnell by telephone at 613-954-0032 or Mr. Matthew Lerette by telephone at 613-954-7398.

CANADA–NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR OFFSHORE PETROLEUM BOARD

CANADA–NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR ATLANTIC ACCORD IMPLEMENTATION ACT

Issuance of exploration licence — Exchange of interest

Pursuant to paragraph 61(1)(b) of the Canada– Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, S.C., 1987, c. 3, and paragraph 60(1)(b) of the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Newfoundland and Labrador Act, R.S.N.L. 1990, c. C-2, the Canada–Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board proposes to issue a new exploration licence in exchange for the surrender of existing Exploration Licence No. 1105 issued to Corridor Resources Inc. in the Canada–Newfoundland and Labrador offshore area.

The issuance of this proposed exploration licence will provide appropriate time for a robust review process associated with a proposed drilling operations authorization and validation of the geological prospect commonly referred to as Old Harry by restoring the term of the licence to four years. No drilling can occur on the proposed exploration licence lands without approval from the Canada–Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board.

The issuance of this proposed interest is a fundamental decision subject to approval by the respective Accord Act ministers.

If approved, the proposed exploration licence will be issued in relation to the same lands as those associated with Exploration Licence No. 1105.

The full text of the proposed exploration licence is available upon request made to the Registrar, Canada–Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board, TD Place, 5th Floor, 140 Water Street, St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador A1C 6H6, 709-778-1400.
