Duty on carbon steel welded pipe from China could expire in August
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal's August 2008 finding (renewed in 2013) concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain carbon steel welded pipe, commonly identified as standard pipe, originating in or exported from China, is scheduled to expire on August 19, 2018.
Under Canadian law, findings of injury or threat of injury and the associated special protection in the form of anti-dumping or countervailing duty expire five years from the date of the last order or finding, unless an expiry review has been initiated before that date.
The Tribunal is now consulting interested parties to determine if the finding should be left to expire or if it should conduct a review which could prolong it.
Parties requesting or opposing the initiation of an expiry review of the findings must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal's Secretary on or before the date specified in the Tribunal's Notice of Expiry.
The Tribunal will issue a decision on May 24, 2018, on whether an expiry review is warranted. If the Tribunal decides that an expiry review is not warranted, the order will expire on its scheduled expiry date. If the Tribunal decides to initiate an expiry review, it will issue a notice of expiry review.
