The Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiated an expiry review of its order to determine if the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing of oil country tubular goods from China are likely to result in injury to Canadian industry.

The Tribunal’s finding, issued in March 2010 and renewed in 2015, imposed anti-dumping and countervailing duties on these goods from China.

In the first step of the review the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will determine, by July 6, 2020, if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and/or subsidizing of the goods if the finding is left to expire.

In the event of a positive determination, the Tribunal will determine, on December 11, 2020, whether the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing are likely to result in injury.

According to statistics published by the CBSA, 23,134,211 kilograms of the subject good were imported in 2018, resulting in the collection of $1,986,078.58 in anti-dumping and countervailing duties.
