The Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) imposed antidumping (AD) duties on hot-rolled carbon steel heavy plate from China and Germany.
In a Jan 7 notice announcing the conclusion of its investigations into imports of the material from these countries, CBSA said that it would publish the final results only after the conclusion of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) inquiry on the impact of dumping of this material on domestic steelmakers. The CITT will issue its final order on Feb 5.
Preliminarily, CBSA has slapped China Steel Corporation with an AD duty of 7pc with 80.6pc levied on all other exporters from Chinese Taipei. For Germany, it has imposed a 6.3pc duty on AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke and 68.6pc on all other German exporters.
