On July 5, 2023, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (“CITT”) issed a preliminary determination of injury in respect of certain wind towers from China. The wind towers investigative process now moves back to CBSA, which will make a preliminary determination of its own by August 5, 2023 regarding dumping or subsidy – which can then result in the imposition of provisional duties!

On April 21, 2023, the Canada Border Services Agency (“CBSA”) released a notice that it was initiating investigations under the Special Import Measures Act into the alleged dumping and subsidizing of certain wind towers from China. The investigation was initiated following a complaint by Marmen Inc. and Marmen Énergie Inc., from Trois-Rivières, Québec.

On May 4, 2023, the Canadian Border Services Agency (“CBSA”) issued a notice that it will be conducting a re-investigation in respect of carbon steel welded pipe originating in or exported from Taiwan, India, Oman, South Korea, Thailand, and the UAE (the “Listed Countries”). CBSA has issued a Request for Information (“RFI”) to both importers and exporters, and responses are due June 5, 2023 and June 12, 2023, respectively!

Normal values established during the re-investigation will be effective as of the end date of the re-investigation, and all normal values currently in place will expire on that date.

The third and final phase of the Canada Border Services Agency’s (“CBSA”) Assessment and Revenue Management (“CARM”) project (i.e., “CARM R2”) now has a clear target date for release – October 2023! The exact implementation date will depend on when draft regulations, released on November 26, 2022, will be finalized. Importers, brokers, freight-forwarders, and anyone else interested in CARM has until January 10, 2023 to provide feedback on the regulations!

The draft regulations will tweak existing regulations to bring them in-line with how the CBSA envisages CARM applying in practice. Hopefully, this will take Canadian customs into the digital age more smoothly than some other recent Federal IT projects!

On December 12, 2022, the Canada Border Services Agency (“CBSA”) issued a notice that it will be conducting a normal value review of refined sugar exported from the US by United Food Group Inc. (“United”).

Unlike re-investigations, where the CBSA reviews and redetermines normal values for all exporters in the industry, in a normal value review CBSA will only review the normal values of the named party – in this case United. (That said, CBSA will sometimes conduct normal value reviews in respect of 2-3 exporters at around the same time and may sync up their schedules so it issues decisions more or less at the same time.)
