Tribunal finds dumping of welded pipe from four countries injures Canadian industry

After completing its preliminary injury inquiry the Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced that it found a reasonable indication that the dumping of certain carbon steel welded pipe from Pakistan, the Philippines, Turkey and Vietnam has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

In July 2018 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation into the alleged injurious dumping of the goods in question following a complaint filed by a Canadian manufacturer located in Montreal, Quebec.

Now that the Tribunal ruled on the question of injury, the CBSA will investigate to confirm that the imports are indeed being dumped and will make a preliminary determination by October 18, 2018.

Provisional anti-dumping duties could soon be applicable to imports of the goods under investigation. In such a case the preliminary decisions of the Tribunal and the CBSA will have to be confirmed by final decisions.
