CBSA Re-investigates the normal values and export prices of Oil Country Tubular Goods and Seamless Casing

October 1, 2019 – On September 27, 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced the initiation of a re-investigation to update the normal values and export prices respecting certain oil country tubular goods (OCTG I) and certain seamless casing originating in or exported from China.

The CBSA also initiated a re-investigation to update the normal values and export prices of certain OCTG II originating in or exported from Taiwan, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine and Vietnam.

The product definition and the applicable tariff classification number of the subject goods are contained in Appendix 1 of the Notice of Re-investigation.

It is anticipated that the re-investigations will be concluded by March 26, 2020.

Exporters wishing to participate in this re-investigation are required to provide a complete and accurate response to the CBSA’s Request for Information (RFI) by November 4, 2019.

The CBSA is contacting all known and potential importers and exporters. Any importers or exporters who have not received a letter from the CBSA with the accompanying RFIs, and who wish to participate should contact one of the officers identified below. It is also suggested that importers contact their exporters to ensure they have received the exporter RFI and if they intend to cooperate with the CBSA in this re-investigation.

Responses to the Importer RFI are due by October 18, 2019. Importers are cautioned that new normal values, when issued, may be higher than those currently in effect and that this could result in additional assessments of anti-dumping duty.
