: Anti-Dumping

Certain Concrete Reinforcing Bar - Statement of Reasons 2017-04-20

In recent months Milgram reported on this anti-dumping case. Click on the links hereunder to review our earlier articles:  On April 3, 2017, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping with respect to certain concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from the Republic of Belarus (Belarus), Chinese Taipei, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (Hong Kong), Japan, the Portuguese Republic (Portugal) and the Kingdom of Spain (Spain).
On April 18, 2017, the CBSA published a Statement of Reasons in this case.
The subject goods are usually classified under the following Harmonized System (HS) classification numbers (codes): 7213.10.00.00, 7214.20.00.00, 7215.90.00.90, 7227.90.00.90. Please note these HS codes are for convenience of reference only. Refer to the product definition for authoritative details regarding the subject goods.
On the basis of the results of the dumping investigation, the CBSA is satisfied that certain concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain has been dumped and that the margins of dumping are not insignificant. Consequently, on April 3, 2017, the CBSA made a final determination of dumping.
The provisional period began on January 3, 2017, and will end on the date the CITT issues its finding. The CITT is expected to issue its decision by May 3, 2017. Subject goods imported during the provisional period will continue to be assessed provisional duties as determined at the time of the preliminary determination.
If the CITT finds that the dumped goods have not caused injury and do not threaten to cause injury, all proceedings relating to this investigation will be terminated. In this situation, all provisional duties paid or security posted by importers will be returned.
On the other hand, if the CITT finds that the dumped goods have caused injury, the anti-dumping duty payable on subject goods released by the CBSA during the provisional period will be finalized. Imports released by the CBSA after the date of the CITT’s finding will be subject to anti-dumping duty equal to the margin of dumping.
In the event of an injury finding by the CITT, normal values have been provided to the named exporters for future shipments to Canada and these normal values would come into effect the day after an injury finding. Information regarding normal values of the subject goods should be obtained from the exporter.
