CBSA announces changes to the anti-dumping/countervailing of certain pup joints from China

Effective December 14, 2015, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) concluded their re-investigation of the normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy of certain pup joints originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).

The subject goods are described as oil country tubular goods 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).

The subject goods are generally classified under the following 10-digit Harmonized System (HS) classification numbers: 7304.29.00.51, 7304.29.00.59, 7304.29.00.61, 7304.29.00.69, 7304.29.00.71, 7304.29.00.79.

Where an exporter of subject goods did not provide sufficient information to determine specific normal values & the amount of subsidy, anti-dumping duty will be assessed at 173.4% of the export price and countervailing duties will be assessed at 9,125.6 RMB/MT.

Importers are advised to review their importations to ensure they are correctly reporting SIMA subsequent to the re-investigation.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to your Livingston representative.
