SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Concrete reinforcing bar — Decision

On January 3, 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 concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from the Republic of Belarus, Chinese Taipei, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Japan, the Portuguese Republic and the Kingdom of Spain (subject goods).

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

7213.10.00.00

7214.20.00.00

7215.90.00.90

7227.90.00.90

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 determination of dumping.

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on subject goods that are released from the CBSA during the period commencing January 3, 2017, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigation is 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. 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 this decision will be issued within 15 days following the decision and will be available on the CBSA website at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting Mr. Robert Wright by telephone at 613-954-1643.

SUBMISSION OF REPORT

On October 13, 2016, the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of Finance, directed (Reference No. GC-2016-001) the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal), pursuant to section 18 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, to inquire into and report on whether the imposition of provisional duties or duties applicable to gypsum board imported from the United States for markets in Manitoba, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Yukon and the Northwest Territories is contrary to Canada’s economic, trade or commercial interests, and specifically whether such an imposition has or would have the effect of substantially reducing competition in those markets or causing significant harm to consumers of those goods or to businesses who use them.
