Tribunal finds evidence that dumped steel welded pipe injures Canadian producers
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today determined that there is a reasonable indication that the alleged dumping of certain carbon steel welded pipe from Taiwan, India, Oman, Korea, Thailand, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates and the subsidizing of the same goods from India, Oman and the United Arab Emirates have caused injury or retardation or are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.
The Tribunal's Preliminary Injury Inquiry was conducted as a result of the initiation of dumping and subsidizing investigations by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The goods in questions are commonly identified as standard pipe, in the nominal size range from 1/2 inch up to and including 6 inches (12.7 mm to 168.3 mm in outside diameter) inclusive, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A53, ASTM A135, ASTM A252, ASTM A589, ASTM A795, ASTM FI083 or Commercial Quality, or AWWA C200-97 or equivalent specifications, including water well casing, piling pipe, sprinkler pipe and fencing pipe, but excluding oil and gas line pipe made to API specifications exclusively.
The CBSA will continue its investigations and make a preliminary determination, on August 13, 2012, into whether the imports are indeed being dumped and/or subsidized.
