On Friday April 7, 2017 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) issued an order to advise that it has conducted an expiry review of its findings in the matter of dumping and subsidizing of pup joints from the People’s Republic of China (China) and is continuing its finding without amendment.
Prior to this, on November 30, 2016 The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) had determined that the expiry of the finding would likely result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from China; and is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of such goods originating in or exported from China.
The subject goods are defined as oil country tubular goods (OCTG) pup joints, made of carbon or alloy steel, welded or seamless, heat-treated or not heat-treated, regardless of end finish, having an outside diameter from 2 3/8 inches to 4 1/2 inches (60.3 mm to 114.3 mm), in all grades, in lengths from 2 feet to 12 feet (61 cm to 366 cm), originating in or exported from China.
The CITT Order and reasons containing the statement of reasons, additional information, the CITT determination and conclusions as well as additional information concerning the Expiry Review is found on the CITT website.
The CBSA Expiry Review decision announced on November 30, 2016 can be found on the CBSA website.
