SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain concrete reinforcing bar — Decision

On April 3, 2017, pursuant to paragraph 41(1)(a) of the Special Import Measures Act, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping in respect of certain concrete reinforcing bar (rebar) 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) [subject goods].

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

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and it will make a finding by May 3, 2017. Provisional duties relating to the dumping of the goods will continue to apply until this date on imports of rebar originating in or exported from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain.

If the CITT finds that the dumping has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury, anti-dumping duty will be applied to future importation of the subject goods. In that event, the importer in Canada shall pay such duty.

The Customs Act applies, with any modifications that the circumstances require, with respect to the accounting and payment of anti-dumping duty.

Information

The Statement of Reasons regarding this decision will be issued within 15 days following the decision and will be available on the CBSA website at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting either Mr. Robert Wright by telephone at 613-954-1643 or Mr. Wu Ping Wei by telephone at 613-954-7180.

In this expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will first determine whether the expiry of the finding in respect of the subject goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing of the subject goods. If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the finding in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing, the Tribunal will then conduct an expiry review to determine if the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing is likely to result in injury. The CBSA will provide notice of its determinations within 150 days after receiving notice of the Tribunal’s decision to initiate an expiry review, that is, no later than September 1, 2017. The Tribunal will issue its order and its statement of reasons no later than February 8, 2018.

Each person or government wishing to participate in this expiry review must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal on or before September 18, 2017. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the expiry review must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before September 18, 2017.
