CANADA BORDER SERVICES AGENCY

SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain silicon metal — Decisions

On July 5, 2017, 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 silicon metal originating in or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil (Brazil), the Republic of Kazakhstan (Kazakhstan), Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, the Kingdom of Norway (Norway) and the Kingdom of Thailand (Thailand), and made a preliminary determination of subsidizing concerning certain silicon metal originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand.

On the same date, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency, pursuant to paragraph 35(2)(a) of SIMA, terminated the dumping investigation in respect of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from the Russian Federation.

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

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding no 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 July 5, 2017, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigations are 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 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 website at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting Mr. Andrew Manera by telephone at 613-946-2052.
