After conducting a preliminary injury inquiry the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) announced that it found a reasonable indication that the dumping of oil country tubular goods, originating in or exported from Mexico, has caused injury to the domestic industry.

Now that the Tribunal ruled on the question of injury, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will investigate to confirm that the imports are indeed being dumped and/or subsidized and will make a preliminary determination by September 28, 2021.

Provisional anti-dumping and/or countervailing duties could eventually 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.
