CBSA concludes SIMA re-investigation of certain Gypsum Board

Re-investigations are conducted periodically by the CBSA to update normal values, export prices or amounts of subsidy and to establish values for new exporters or new models to ensure that the values in place accurately reflect current market conditions.

On June 20, 2024, the CBSA concluded a re-investigation of the Gypsum board SIMA case currently in force.

During the investigation, CBSA sent out requests for information (RFI) to all known importers, exporters, producers and vendors to solicit information on the costs and selling prices of subject goods.

Exporters which submitted a complete response to the RFI’s and for whom the verification was considered reliable, were issued normal values for future shipments.

As such, imports of subject goods, exported to Canada by co-operative exporters will not be subject to anti-dumping duties if the goods are sold to Canada at or above the normal value issued to those exporters by CBSA.

Importers are reminded that, if using the services of a customs broker to clear their importations, the brokerage firm should be advised whether or not the goods are subject to anti-dumping and countervailing duties, and be provided with sufficient information necessary to accurately assess SIMA if applicable

Complete details regarding the conclusion of the re-investigation, including a list of the co-operative exporters are available here.
