On December 14, the CBSA concluded that Vietnam businesses did not provide full information for investigation agencies so it decided to levy anti-dumping duties of 37.4% on OCTG products imported from Vietnam.
Earlier, CBSA initiated a re-investigation program to consolidate the investigation agency’s conclusion on April 2, 2015 on damage for the domestic industry.
During the investigation process, the CBSA asked the plaintiff and exporters to supply information about the necessity to update normal value for future shipments.
For Vietnam, the CBSA has collected information related to the Article 20 of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) to evaluate market economic issues for the country’s steel sector, including OCTG. However, it could not give out the final conclusion because it did not receive full information from Vietnamese exporters.
