Canada to impose anti-dumping duties on carbon, steel line pipe from South Korea
The investigation follows up on allegations from two Canadian manufacturers
OTTAWA—Canada plans to impose anti-dumping duties on specific types of carbon and alloy steel line pipe imported from South Korea.
The decision was disclosed last week by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal following a months-long investigation spurred by a complaint from Saskatchewan steel firm Evraz Inc. and Canmore, Alta.’s Canadian National Steel Corp.
The anti-dumping decision affects line pipe between 2.3 and 24 inches (60 to 610 millimetres) in diameter entering the country from South Korea.
The tribunal’s probe began last June with the Canada Border Services Agency running a concurrent investigation into whether the imported carbon and steel products were harming Canadian industry.
The CITT plans to release further details about the investigation, including its justifications for the duties, later this month.
