The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said it will investigate whether the liquefied natural gas (LNG) modules are in line with special import measures regulations that came into force in April.
The scope proceeding is being conducted in order to establish whether or not liquefied natural gas (LNG) modules are subject to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s (CITT) injury finding issued on May 25, 2017, concerning the dumping of certain fabricated industrial structural components (FISC) from China and South Korea, and the subsidizing of FISC from China,
“The scope proceeding is the result of an application filed with the CBSA by Woodfibre LNG Limited (Vancouver, British Columbia), a potential importer of the goods that are the subject of the application,” CBSA said in its statement.
The purpose of a scope proceeding is to establish whether certain goods fall within the product description of an existing anti‑dumping or countervailing measure.
Woodfibre LNG provided detailed descriptions of the LNG modules, claiming the CITT finding does not apply to these structures.
CBSA said the results of the scope proceeding will be unveiled by November 23, this year.
