Notice of normal value review: Carbon and Alloy Steel Line Pipe 2 – Husteel Co., Ltd (Husteel)
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has today initiated a normal value and export price review to update all normal values and export prices of certain carbon and alloy steel line pipe (line pipe) exported from the Republic of Korea to Canada by Husteel Co., Ltd (Husteel).
The review is part of the CBSA’s enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) injury finding issued on January 4, 2018. The product definition and the applicable tariff classification numbers of the goods subject to the CITT finding can be found on the CBSA’s Measures in force.
Should the exporter decide to participate in this normal value and export price review, it is required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s dumping request for information (RFI) by August 14, 2023.
If the exporter does not provide a complete response to the RFI by the deadline date, any previous normal values issued to the exporter will be immediately revoked and normal values for subject goods exported by Husteel will be determined by advancing the export price of the goods by 88.1%, pursuant to a Ministerial specification.
The schedule for this review is available. The CBSA will close the record for this normal value review at any time during the proceeding, without advanced notice, once it has been determined that sufficient information has been received to make a decision. Therefore, interested parties are encouraged to provide any and all information that they feel is relevant to this review to the CBSA as early as possible. 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 normal value and export price review and 14 days from the close of the record to file reply submissions in respect of the case arguments.
The normal values and export prices established during this review will apply to subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the conclusion date. Normal values currently in place will expire on that date. The normal values and export prices 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 review, regardless of the date that the requests were received. The normal values and export prices determined as a result of this review may also be applied to past transactions for which normal values were not available at the time of release.
Where applicable, the normal values and export prices determined as a result of this review may be applied retroactively. Exporters with normal values are required to promptly inform the CBSA in writing of changes to domestic prices, costs, market conditions or terms and channel of sale associated with the production and sales of the goods. All parties are cautioned that where there are increases in domestic prices and/or costs as noted above, the export price for sales to Canada should be increased accordingly to ensure that any sale made to Canada is not only above the normal value but at or above selling prices and full costs and profit of the goods in the exporter’s domestic market. If exporters did not properly notify the CBSA of any such changes, did not adjust export prices accordingly, or did not provide the information required to make any necessary adjustments to normal values and export prices, retroactive assessments of anti-dumping duties may be warranted. Please refer to the CBSA’s re-investigation and normal value review policy (Memorandum D14-1-8) for details.
