Canada acts to further prevent transshipment and diversion of steel and aluminum to protect North American workers against unfair trade

글쓴이 : KH CANADA 날짜 : 2018-03-27 (화) 11:01


The transshipment and diversion of unfairly cheap foreign steel and aluminum is a threat to Canadian jobs and the North American market.

Canada already has one of the toughest enforcement regimes in the world to combat this practice. We currently have 71 trade remedy measures in force on steel and aluminum imports alone. And we are strengthening enforcement further to stop foreign exporters from avoiding duties meant to level the playing field.

The following regulatory changes will be brought forward and be subject to a 15-day consultation period through the Canada Gazette:

New anti-circumvention investigations will allow the Canada Border Services Agency to identify and stop companies that try to dodge duties (for example, by slightly modifying products or assembling them in Canada or a third country).
In calculating duties, the Canada Border Services Agency will have greater flexibility in determining whether prices charged in the exporter"s domestic market, which we use for comparison, are reliable or distorted.
Unions will gain standing to participate in trade-remedy proceedings, including at the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, into whether foreign exports are hurting domestic producers.
In addition, the Government of Canada will:

Coordinate more closely with our partners to strengthen enforcement at the border, including by increasing the frequency of meetings between border agencies. This will improve the sharing of information and enforcement action. We will also urgently undertake a review to make sure our enforcement agencies have all the resources they need to take action on unfair trade.  
Look to meet more often with the United States and Mexico to identify and discuss solutions to issues that harm all three countries, including transshipment, diversion, and global overcapacity.
Participate in new federal-provincial-territorial-stakeholder committees, which will meet regularly to monitor steel and aluminum trade to ensure imports do not hurt Canadian and North American jobs.
These changes form part of what will be a continuous process of making Canada"s trade remedy investigations and enforcement more robust, responsive and timely.

We will always stand up for Canadian steel and aluminum workers and the Canadian steel and aluminum industry.The transshipment and diversion of unfairly cheap foreign steel and aluminum is a threat to Canadian jobs and the North American market.
