The CBSA Initiates Investigations Into the Dumping and Subsidizing of Certain Concrete Reinforcing Bar

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- Canada Border Services Agency

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced today that it is initiating investigations into the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of certain concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey.

The investigations follow a complaint filed by Alta Steel Inc. (Edmonton, Alberta), ArcelorMittal Long Carbon North America (Contrecoeur, Quebec), and Gerdau Longsteel North America (Whitby, Ontario) ("the complainants"). The complainants allege that the dumping and subsidizing of these goods are harming Canadian production by causing the following: price depression and price suppression, lost sales and market share, reduced profits, reduced production and capacity utilization, and negative effects on growth and capital investments.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) will begin a preliminary inquiry to determine whether the imports are harming Canadian producers and will issue a decision by August 12, 2014. While the Tribunal is examining the question of injury, the CBSA will investigate whether the imports are being dumped and/or subsidized, and will make a preliminary decision by September 11, 2014.

Should the CBSA make a preliminary determination of dumping and/or subsidizing, the investigations will be continued for the purpose of making a final decision within 90 days after the date of the preliminary determination. If the CBSA's investigations reveal that imports of the subject goods have not been dumped or subsidized, that the margin of dumping or amount of subsidy is insignificant or that the actual and potential volume of dumped or subsidized goods is negligible, the investigations will be terminated.

Although duties to counteract the dumping and subsidizing are normally only applied to goods released on or after the date of the CBSA's preliminary determination(s), if the Tribunal determines that an unusually large increase in harmful imports has occurred prior to the CBSA's decision and that the retroactive application of anti-dumping or countervailing duty is therefore justified, duty could be levied on the goods brought into Canada as of today.

A copy of the statement of reasons, which provides more details about these investigations, will be available on the CBSA's Web site within 15 days.

Quick Facts


--  Dumping occurs when goods are sold to importers in Canada at prices that
    are less than their selling prices in the exporter's domestic market or
    at unprofitable prices.
--  Subsidizing occurs when goods imported into Canada benefit from foreign
    government financial assistance.
--  The Special Import Measures Act protects Canadian producers from the
    damaging effects of such unfair trade.
--  As of March 31, 2014, 42 such measures are in force, covering a wide
    variety of industrial and consumer products from steel products to bell
    peppers. These measures have directly helped to protect more than 37,000
    Canadian jobs and over $7 billion in Canadian production.
