CBSA launches first scope proceeding on goods subject to anti-dumping duties

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced the start of a scope proceeding under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) respecting certain fabricated industrial steel components from China, South Korea and Spain.

The purpose of a scope proceeding is to establish whether certain goods fall within the product description of an existing anti-dumping or countervailing measure. The proceedings are formal processes whereby an interested person can obtain a scope ruling from the CBSA.

This is the Agency's first scope proceeding since they were enacted into law as a result of changes to the SIMA and the Special Import Measures Regulations that came into force on April 26, 2018.

The proceeding is the result of an application filed with the CBSA by a potential importer of the goods that are the subject of the application.

The scope proceeding will establish whether or not liquefied natural gas (LNG) modules are subject to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal's injury finding issued in May 2017 concerning the dumping and/or subsidizing of certain industrial steel components from the three countries.
