OTTAWA, Canada (September 8) – The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that its anti-dumping re-investigation concerning bicycles and frames from Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China concluded September 1. The CBSA carried out a comprehensive investigation of the Chinese bicycle industry and conducted verification visits at the premises of Chinese exporters. The CBSA found no evidence to demonstrate that pricing of the bicycles and frames is substantially controlled by the government.
As a result, the Chinese exporters investigated will now be able to sell to Canada at lower prices without being subject to anti-dumping duty. However, the CBSA will continue to collect anti-dumping duty if the selling price to Canada is below the minimum prices established as a result of this review.
Dumping occurs when goods are sold to importers in Canada at prices that are lower than the selling price of comparable goods in the country of export or when goods are sold to Canada at unprofitable prices.
Anti-dumping measures have been in place on these goods since the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s injury finding of December 11, 1992, which was renewed on December 10, 1997 and again on December 9, 2002. Since China was considered to be a non-market economy in the past, normal values for Chinese exporters previously were established based on costs or prices of bicycles sold in a third-country (i.e., a “surrogate” country) that has a market economy.
Under the Special Import Measures Act, the CBSA only examines the extent of control, if any, that the Chinese government has over the domestic price of the goods under investigation. (source: Canadian Ministry of Economics)
