Notice of expedited review: Oil country tubular goods and seamless casing
In response to a request for an expedited review from Linzhou Fengbao Pipe Industry Co., Ltd., the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has initiated an expedited review of certain oil country tubular goods (OCTG) and seamless casing (SC) exported to Canada from China by Linzhou Fengbao Pipe Industry Co., Ltd., pursuant to subsection 13.2(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA).
This expedited review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s order, respecting the dumping and subsidizing of certain OCTG/SC from China, in accordance with SIMA.
The product definition and the applicable tariff classification numbers of the goods subject to the CITT’s orders are contained in Appendix 1 (subject goods).
Should the exporter decide to participate in this expedited review, it is required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s Dumping Request for Information (RFI) and Subsidy RFI by November 28, 2022. The exporter will be considered co-operative if the requested information is complete, submitted on time and the exporter permits verification of the data.
If an exporter does not provide a complete response to the RFI by the deadline date, normal values, export prices and an amount of subsidy for subject goods exported by the exporter will be determined pursuant to a ministerial specification by advancing the export price of the goods from China by a rate of 166.9%. Similarly, in cases where the Government of China or the exporter fails to provide complete and accurate submissions enabling the determination of specific amounts of subsidy, countervailing duties will be assessed at the rate of 4,070 Chinese Renminbi per metric tonne, pursuant to ministerial specification.
The schedule for this expedited review is now available. The CBSA will close the record for this expedited review once it has been determined that sufficient information has been received to make a decision. The CBSA will update the website to announce that the record has been closed. Interested parties will have seven days from the close of the record to file case arguments concerning the review and 14 days from the close of the record to file reply submissions in respect of the case arguments.
Normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy established during this review will apply to the goods in question. Further, normal values, export prices and amount of subsidy established during this review will also apply to subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of the conclusion of the expedited review. The normal values, export prices and amount of subsidy determined as a result of this review may be applied to any requests for re determination of importations of subject goods that have not been processed prior to the conclusion of the expedited review, regardless of the date that the requests were received.
Exporters are required to promptly inform the CBSA in writing of changes to domestic prices, costs, market conditions or terms of sale associated with the production and sales of the goods, or amounts of subsidy received. The concerned parties are responsible for informing the CBSA of such changes in writing and in a timely manner. If the concerned parties do not properly notify the CBSA of substantial changes, or if they do not provide the information required to make any necessary adjustments to values, retroactive assessments of anti-dumping and/or countervailing duty may be warranted. Please refer to the CBSA’s re-investigation and normal value review policy (Memorandum D14-1-8) for details.
