Expiry Review of Carbon Steel Welded Pipe

Expiry Review of Carbon Steel Welded Pipe

The CITT has nearly concluded its expiry review of its order made August 19, 2013 in Expiry Review No. RR-2012-003, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of carbon steel welded pipe.

The goods are commonly identified as standard pipe, in the nominal size range of 1/2 inch up to and including 6 inches (12.7 mm to 168.3 mm in outside diameter) inclusive, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A53, ASTM A135, ASTM A252, ASTM A589, ASTM A795, ASTM F1083 or Commercial Quality, or AWWA C200-97 or equivalent specifications, including water well casing, piling pipe, sprinkler pipe and fencing pipe, but excluding oil and gas line pipe made to API specifications exclusively and excluding (1) carbon steel welded pipe in the nominal pipe size of 1 inch, meeting the requirements of specification ASTM A53, Grade B, Schedule 10, with a black or galvanized finish, and with plain ends, for use in fire protection applications, (2) carbon steel welded pipe in nominal pipe sizes of 1/2 inch to 2 inches inclusive, produced using the electric resistance welding process and meeting the requirements of specification ASTM A53, Grade A, for use in the production of carbon steel pipe nipples, and (3) carbon steel welded pipe in nominal pipe sizes of 1/2 inch to 6 inches inclusive, dual‑stencilled to meet the requirements of both specification ASTM A252, Grades 1 to 3, and specification API 5L, with bevelled ends and in random lengths, for use as foundation piles, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

In this expiry review, the CBSA will first determine whether the expiry of the order in respect of the subject goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods. If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing, the CITT will then conduct an expiry review to determine if the continued or resumed dumping and/or subsidizing are likely to result in injury. The CBSA will provide notice of its determinations within 150 days after receiving notice of the CITT’s decision to initiate an expiry review, that is, no later than October 22, 2018. The CITT will issue its order and its statement of reasons no later than March 28, 2019.

The CBSA’s Investigation

In conjunction with the CITT’s expiry review, the CBSA has now concluded its investigation and determined

  1. The expiry of the order in respect of the dumping of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from China is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods into Canada; and
  2. The expiry of the order in respect of the subsidizing of certain carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from China is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of the goods exported to Canada.

The subject goods are defined as carbon steel welded pipe, commonly identified as standard pipe, in the nominal size range of 1/2 inch up to and including 6 inches (12.7 mm to 168.3 mm in outside diameter) inclusive, in various forms and finishes, usually supplied to meet ASTM A53, ASTM A135, ASTM A252, ASTM A589, ASTM A795, ASTM F1083 or Commercial Quality, or AWWA C200-97 or equivalent specifications, including water well casing, piling pipe, sprinkler pipe and fencing pipe, but excluding oil and gas line pipe made to API specifications exclusively and excluding (1) carbon steel welded pipe in the nominal pipe size of 1 inch, meeting the requirements of specification ASTM A53, Grade B, Schedule 10, with a black or galvanized finish, and with plain ends, for use in fire protection applications, (2) carbon steel welded pipe in nominal pipe sizes of 1/2 inch to 2 inches inclusive, produced using the electric resistance welding process and meeting the requirements of specification ASTM A53, Grade A, for use in the production of carbon steel pipe nipples, and (3) carbon steel welded pipe in nominal pipe sizes of 1/2 inch to 6 inches inclusive, dual-stencilled to meet the requirements of both specification ASTM A252, Grades 1 to 3, and specification API 5L, with bevelled ends and in random lengths, for use as foundation piles, originating in or exported from China.
