Canada reviews dumping finding on pipe from Taiwan following WTO decision

In late 2012 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Canadian International Trade Tribunal ruled that certain steel pipe from Chinese Taipei was sold below its normal price ("dumped") and that the dumping hurt Canadian industry. The decisions resulted in the imposition of anti-dumping duty on imports of the goods in question.

Chinese Taipei appealed these decisions to the World Trade Organization (WTO) which, in January 20017, found certain aspects of the Canadian determinations to be inconsistent with the WTO Anti Dumping Agreement.

On July 21, 2017, the Canadian Minister of Finance requested the President of the CBSA to review the final determination of dumping and the Tribunal to review its threat of injury finding, having regard to the WTO's recommendations and rulings.
