Canada Initiates AD Expiry Review on Line Pipes from China
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has initiated an expiry review of its finding made on March 29, 2016, in Inquiry No NQ-2015-002, to determine if the expiry of the finding is likely to lead to continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing of carbon and alloy steel line pipe from the People’s Republic of China and is likely to result in injury. On July 30, 2021, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on January 6, 2022, whether the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing are likely to result in injury.
The goods subject to this preliminary injury inquiry are “Carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, welded or seamless, having an outside diameter from 2.375 inches (60.3 mm) up to and including 24 inches (609.6 mm), including line pipe meeting or supplied to meet any one or several of API 5L, CSA Z245.1, ISO 3183, ASTM A333, ASTM A106, ASTM A53-B or their equivalents, in all grades, whether or not meeting specifications for other end uses (e.g. single-, dual- or multiple-certified, for use in oil and gas, piling pipe, or other applications), and regardless of end finish (plain ends, beveled ends, threaded ends or threaded and coupled ends), surface finish (coated or uncoated), wall thickness, or length, excluding galvanized line pipe and excluding stainless steel line pipe (containing 10.5 percent or more by weight of chromium)”
