The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is re-investigating the normal values and subsidy amounts of exporters who bring in a particular type of refined sugar to Canada which are subject to the Refined Sugar (SUG) SIMA case. For Canadian companies that import this type of sugar, the normal value re-investigation will affect the duties they pay; if the CBSA determines that these exporters are dumping and subsidizing their product, importers will pay anti-dumping and countervailing duties, raising their costs.
The new amounts established during the re-investigation will be effective on the date of the conclusion, and normal values and amounts of subsidy currently in place will expire on that date.
Details regarding the re-investigation are available here.
