CBSA concludes normal value review on carbon steel fasteners for exporter Robertson Jiaxing, CN

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), on July 8, 2021, concluded a normal value review to update the normal values and export prices applicable to certain carbon steel fasteners exported to Canada from China by Robertson Inc. (Jiaxing) (Robertson Jiaxing).

Specific details of the products subject to this SIMA case and their tariff classification numbers are contained in Appendix 1 of the CBSA’s Notice of Conclusion.

At the initiation of the normal value review, the CBSA sent Requests for Information (RFIs) to Robertson Jiaxing and to other parties involved in the transactions in order to solicit information on the costs and selling prices of subject goods and like goods.

The CBSA determined that the information provided by Robertson Jiaxing in its RFI response was sufficient for purposes of determining normal values and export prices in this review. As such, specific normal values for future shipments of certain carbon steel fasteners have been determined for Robertson Jiaxing. These normal values are effective as of July 8, 2021.

The normal values and export prices may be applied to any requests for re‑determination of importations of subject goods that have not been processed prior to the conclusion of this normal value review, regardless of the date that the requests were received. The normal values and export prices determined as a result of this review may be applied retroactively where the certain conditions are met.

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.
