CBSA investigation launched into dumping of steel sheet from Asian countries
The steel is coming from China, Chinese Taipei, India and South Korea
OTTAWA—The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is launching an investigation into whether or not certain corrosion-resistant steel sheet originating in or exported from China, Chinese Taipei, India and South Korea is being sold at unfair prices in Canada.
The investigation is the result of a complaint filed by Hamilton, Ont.-based ArcelorMittal Dofasco G.P. The complaint is supported by Stelco Inc.
Corrosion-resistant steel sheet is commonly used in the production of a range of goods such as farm buildings, grain bins, culverts, garden sheds, roofing material, siding, floor decks, roof decks, wall studs, drywall corner beads, doors, door frames, ducting (and other heating and cooling applications), flashing, hardware products and appliance components.
Corrosion-resistant steel sheet for use in automobiles and automobile parts is not included in this investigation.
The CBSA will make a preliminary decision by Oct. 24, and the Canadian International Trade Tribunal will also investigate.
