Canada has imposed antidumping duties (AD) on hot‑rolled carbon and high‑strength low‑alloy steel heavy plates imported from Chinese Taipei, Germany, and Turkey.
The Canada Borders Services Agency (CBSA) initiated investigations against five countries, but the preliminary ruling was made only for three after the CBSA President rescinded the agency’s inquiry on the products imported from South Korea and Malaysia.
The CBSA said in a notification issued on Friday that the details of its preliminary findings and the period of review would be published within 15 days. For now, it has directed heavy plate exporters from Chinese Taipei, Germany, and Turkey to pay provisional duties on the products released from Canadian customs starting Oct 9.
China Steel Corporation, AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke, and Ereğli Demir ve Çelik Fabrikaları were slapped with lower duties compared with other Chinese, German, and Turkish exporters. Here’s a break down of the estimated dumping margin and the duties imposed:
|Exporter||Estimated dumping margin||Duties payable|
|China Steel Corporation||9.4pc||9.4pc|
|All other exporters||97pc||97pc|
|AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke||4.8pc||4.8pc|
|All other exporters||63.8pc||63.8pc|
|Ereğli Demir ve Çelik Fabrikaları||2.9pc||2.9pc|
|All other exporters||25.8pc||25.8pc|
