On August 2, 2016, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT), pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its finding made on April 10, 2012, in Inquiry No. NQ-2011-001, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of oil country tubular goods pup joints made of carbon or alloy steel, welded or seamless, heat-treated or not heat-treated, regardless of end finish, having an outside diameter from 2 ⅜ inches to 4 ½ inches (60.3 mm to 114.3 mm), in all grades, in lengths from 2 feet to 12 feet (61 cm to 366 cm), excluding casing pup joints, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).
As a result, on August 3, 2016, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.
The investigation has been completed and today, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the CBSA has determined that the expiry of the finding:
- is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from China; and
- is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of such goods originating in or exported from China.
The CITT will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its order is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than April 7, 2017.
