CANADA BORDER SERVICES AGENCY

SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Small power transformers — Decision

On August 27, 2021, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping respecting certain small power transformers from Austria, the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu (Chinese Taipei), and South Korea.

The subject goods are usually imported under the following tariff classification numbers:

  • 8504.22.00.20
  • 8504.23.00.00

In some instances, the subject goods may also be imported under the following tariff classification numbers:

  • 8504.90.90.10
  • 8504.90.90.82
  • 8504.90.90.90

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian industry and will make an order or finding no later than 120 days after its receipt of the notice of the preliminary determination of dumping.

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on the subject goods that are released from the CBSA during the period commencing August 27, 2021, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigation is terminated, the day on which the CITT makes an order or finding, or the day an undertaking is accepted. Where the margin of dumping is considered insignificant, the investigation will continue but provisional duty will not be collected.

The amount of provisional duty payable is not greater than the estimated margin of dumping. The Customs Act applies with respect to the accounting and payment of provisional duty. Therefore, failure to pay duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Customs Act.

Information

The Statement of Reasons regarding the preliminary determination will be issued within 15 days following the decision and will be available on the CBSA website.
