In December 2017, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiated an expiry review of its finding made in 2012, in Inquiry No. NQ 2012-003, concerning the dumping of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei (1), India, Oman, the Republic of Korea, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates (2), and the subsidizing of the aforementioned goods originating in or exported from India.

Following the Tribunal’s decision the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.

The CBSA’s investigation has now been completed and the Agency has determined that the expiry of the finding concerning the dumping is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods into Canada; and the expiry of the finding in respect of the subsidizing is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of the goods exported to Canada.

The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its finding is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and will issue its decision by October 15, 2018.
