CBSA issues retroactive SIMA assessments on Line Pipe 2 SIMA case

On July 6, 2022, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated a re-investigation of the Line Pipe 2 SIMA case to update normal values, export prices, and to establish values for new exporters or new models.

The CBSA advises exporters of goods subject to a SIMA finding which have been issued normal values that they must inform the CBSA of changes to their domestic prices, costs, terms of sale, and market conditions associated with the goods and should adjust their selling prices to Canada accordingly. Failure to do so may result in the retroactive assessment of anti-dumping duty.

During this re-investigation, the CBSA determined that certain exporters did not notify the CBSA in a timely manner of changes to certain conditions as required and failed to adjust their selling prices accordingly.

As a result, the CBSA issued retroactive assessments of $ 6.1 million in anti-dumping duty on subject goods released into Canada from July 2021 to December 2022 to ensure full compliance under SIMA.

The Notice of retroactive Special Imports Measures Act assessments: Line pipe 2 (LP2) is available on CBSA’s website here.
