CBSA issues final determinations on PET resin from four countries
On February 14 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that it terminated the subsidy investigation in respect of certain polyethylene terephthalate resin (PET resin) exported to Canada from Oman by OCTAL SAOC FZC, and exported to Canada from Pakistan by Novatex Limited, as well as originating in or exported from Pakistan by all other exporters, as the amounts of subsidy were insignificant.
On the same day, the CBSA, made a final determination of dumping in respect of certain PET resin originating in or exported from China, India, Oman and Pakistan, and a final determination of subsidizing in respect of certain PET resin originating in or exported from China and India.
As all exporters of goods originating in or exported from Oman and Pakistan have an insignificant amount of subsidy, the termination of the subsidy investigation in respect of subject goods from these exporters will effectively end the CBSA's subsidy proceedings in respect of goods from Oman and Pakistan.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by March 16, 2018.
The CBSA advises that provisional duties will continue to be applied on imports of dumped and subsidized subject goods originating or exported from China, India, Oman and Pakistan until the Tribunal concludes its inquiry and issues its finding. However, provisional countervailing duties on goods exported from Oman by Octal, and exported from Pakistan by Novatex and originating in or exported from Pakistan by all other exporters, will cease, and all provisional countervailing duties paid or security posted on these goods, will be returned.
