CBSA starts dumping investigation on carbon steel welded pipe from four countries

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) launched an investigation into whether or not certain carbon steel welded pipe from Pakistan, the Philippines, Turkey and Vietnam are being sold at unfair prices in Canada.

The investigations follow a complaint filed by a Canadian manufacturer located in Montreal, Quebec. The complainant alleges that as a result of price undercutting from the four counties, Canadian industry faces price suppression, lost sales, reduced profitability, reduced production and under-utilization of capacity.

In the next step of the investigations the Canadian International Trade Tribunal will first determine whether the imports are harming Canadian producers, and will issue a decision by September 18, 2018.

Concurrently, the CBSA will investigate whether the imports are being sold in Canada at unfair and/or subsidized prices, and will make preliminary decisions by October 18, 2018.

Anti-dumping duties could eventually be applied to the goods under investigation.
