Canada Begins Re-Investigation of AD/CV Measures on Copper Pipe Fittings. The Canada Border Services Agency has initiated a re-investigation of the normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy of certain copper pipe fittings classified under HTSCA 7412.10.0011, 7412.10.0019, 7412.10.0090, 7412.20.0011, 7412.20.0012, 7412.20.0019 and 7412.20.0090 from mainland China.
Where an exporter of subject goods does not provide sufficient information to determine specific normal values or does not permit verification of information submitted, AD duties will be assessed at the rate of 242 percent of the export price of the subject goods imported into Canada in accordance with a ministerial specification. Similarly, in cases where the mainland Chinese government or exporters in the mainland fail to provide complete and accurate submissions enabling the determination of specific amounts of subsidy, CV duties will be assessed at the rate of 17.73 Chinese Renminbi per kilogramme in accordance with a ministerial specification.
Normal values and amounts of subsidy established during this re-investigation will be effective for the subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of the conclusion of the re-investigation. Normal values and amounts of subsidy currently in place will expire on that date. In addition, the normal values and amounts of subsidy determined on the basis of the re-investigation will be applied to any entries of subject goods under appeal that have yet to be re-determined at the time of the conclusion of this re-investigation.
