The CBSA determined as follows:
- The expiry of the order in respect of certain seamless casing originating in or exported from China is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods; and
- The expiry of the order in respect of certain seamless casing originating in or exported from China is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of the goods.
