CBSA concludes normal value and export price review on oil country tubular goods

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), on December 22, 2020, concluded a normal value and export price review to update the normal values and export prices applicable to certain oil country tubular goods (OCTG 2) exported to Canada from the United States by Conestoga Supply Corporation.

At the start of the investigation, requests for Information (RFI’S) were sent to Conestoga, its related importer and the manufacture of the subject goods.

A sufficiently completed RFI was received back from the manufacturer. However, information provided by Conestoga and CPS in their responses to the RFI was insufficient for purposes of determining normal values and export prices.

As a result, the normal values for the subject goods released by the CBSA on or after December 22, 2020, will be determined in accordance with a ministerial specification based on the export price of the goods advanced by 37.4%.

Detailed descriptions as well as the HS classifications of the subject goods are contained in Appendix 1 of the CBSA’s Notice of Conclusion.

Importers are reminded that it is their responsibility to calculate and declare their anti-dumping and countervailing duty liability. In order to determine their anti-dumping and countervailing duty liability, importers should contact their suppliers who can provide information on normal values and amounts of subsidy. Under limited circumstances, the CBSA may make this information available to importers. Please refer to Memorandum D14-1-2 for more information.

The CBSA Notice of Conclusion of Normal Value Review containing additional details can be found on CBSA’s website.
