Canada probes concrete reinforcement imports


Canada’s border service has launched an anti-dumping investigation into concrete reinforcement products entering the country.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is investigating imports from Belarus, Portugal, Spain, Japan, Chinese Taipei (Taiwan), and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. 

A complaint filed by Arcelor Mittal Long Products Canada, AltaSteel and Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation alleged that imports from the named countries are undercutting Canadian products.

The result is that the Canadian companies believe that they are losing market share and revenue.

Canada currently has 48 special import measures in force, which cover products ranging from steel to refined sugar.

A special import measure on concrete reinforcement from China, South Korea and Turkey was issued in December 2014.
