SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT
Large line pipe — Decisions
On June 22, 2016, 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 welded large diameter carbon and alloy steel line pipe (large line pipe) originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China) and Japan, and made a preliminary determination of subsidizing concerning large line pipe originating in or exported from China.
The goods in question 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 Canadian industry and will make an order or finding not later than 120 days after its receipt of the notice of the preliminary determination 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 June 22, 2016, 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. Failure to pay duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Customs Act.
The Statement of Reasons regarding these decisions will be issued within 15 days following the decisions and will be available on the CBSA Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting either Mr. Jody Grantham by telephone at 613-954-7405 or Mr. Wayne Tian by telephone at 613-946-2574.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) has received a complaint (File No. PR-2016-016) from The Access Information Agency Inc. (AIA), of Ottawa, Ontario, concerning a request for proposal (Solicitation No. SPPC-1000019729) by the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) on behalf of the Commissioner of Canada Elections. The request for proposal is for unilingual investigative services (English) and bilingual investigative services. Pursuant to subsection 30.13(2) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act and subsection 7(2) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Procurement Inquiry Regulations, notice is hereby given that the Tribunal made a decision on June 16, 2016, to conduct an inquiry into the complaint.
AIA alleges that the PPSC refused to provide the name of the purchaser and the value of the contract. AIA also alleges that the PPSC neglected to give details regarding the evaluation of its proposal and did not convey information regarding the relative advantages and characteristics of the successful proposal. Moreover, AIA contests the Commissioner of Canada Elections’ argument that the proposals have expired and that they are no longer valid.
Further information may be obtained from the Registrar, Canadian International Trade Tribunal Secretariat, 333 Laurier Avenue West, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), email@example.com (email).

The Massasauga (Sistrurus catenatus) is listed on Schedule 1 to the Species at Risk Act as threatened. The Massasauga, eastern Canada’s only venomous snake, is a stout-bodied, relatively small rattlesnake; adults are typically 50 to 70 cm long. It is found in a broad range of natural communities (e.g. forests, wetlands, grasslands, and alvars), and is known to occur in four separate regional populations in Ontario. The Recovery Strategy for the Massasauga (Sistrurus catenatus) in Canada (http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=1696BD45-1) identifies critical habitat for the species in a number of areas, including two national parks.
Notice is hereby given, pursuant to subsection 58(2) of the Species at Risk Act, that 90 days after the date of publication of this notice, subsection 58(1) of the Act will apply to the critical habitat of the Massasauga, as identified in the recovery strategy for that species that is included in the Species at Risk Public Registry, that is located within Georgian Bay Islands National Park of Canada and within Fathom Five National Marine Park of Canada, the boundaries of which are described in Schedule 1 to the Canada National Parks Act.
