SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain polyethylene terephthalate resin — Decisions

On November 16, 2017, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made preliminary determinations of dumping and subsidizing concerning certain polyethylene terephthalate resin (PET resin) originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of India, the Sultanate of Oman and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

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

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 on November 16, 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. Where margins of dumping and/or amounts of subsidy are considered insignificant, the investigation will continue but preliminary duties will not be collected.

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 either Mr. Richard Pragnell by telephone at 613-954-0032 or by email at Richard.Pragnell@cbsa-asfc.gc.ca, or Ms. Valerie Ngai by telephone at 613-954-7410 or by email at Valerie.Ngai@cbsa-asfc.gc.ca.
