The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated a re-investigation to update the normal values and export prices respecting certain concrete reinforcing bar (rebar) originating in or exported from China, South Korea and Turkey (Rebar 1), and originating in or exported from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain (Rebar 2) and the amounts of subsidy of certain rebar originating in or exported from China.
Orders from the Canadian International Trade Tribunal impose anti-dumping and/or countervailing duties on importations of the specified goods.
As part of this re-investigation, the CBSA said it will also be conducting an inquiry pursuant to section 20 of SIMA (non competitive market) respecting the long products steel industry sector in China and the rebar sector in Belarus.
Normal values and amounts of subsidy established during this re-investigation will be effective for the subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of the conclusion of the re-investigation. Normal values and amounts of subsidy currently in place will expire on that date. In addition, the normal values and amounts of subsidy determined on the basis of the re-investigation will be applied to any entries of subject goods under appeal that have yet to be re determined at the time of the conclusion of this re-investigation.
It is anticipated that this re-investigation will be concluded by May 4, 2018.
