CBSA concludes re-investigation of normal value and export prices on carbon steel fasteners

November 20, 2019 – On November 14, 2019 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) concluded a re-investigation of the normal value and export prices applicable to certain carbon steel fasteners originating in or exported from China and Taiwan.

The goods subject to the CITT’s orders and their tariff classification numbers are contained in Appendix 1 of the Notice of Conclusion.

At the initiation of the re-investigation, the CBSA sent Requests for Information (RFI) to importers, exporters, vendors, and the Government of China to obtain information on the costs and selling prices of subject and like goods as well as any subsidy programs that may be applicable to subject goods.

Specific normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy for future shipments  have been determined for all exporters that submitted a complete response to the Dumping RFI, Subsidy RFI, to the Supplemental RFIs and for whom the desk and/or on-site verification was considered reliable.

For a list of the exporters that have received normal values and specific amounts of subsidy effective November 14, 2019, please refer to the Certain Fasteners case in the Measures in Force.

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.

The CBSA Notice of Conclusion of Re-investigation containing additional details can be found on CBSA’s website.
