Steel producers praise CBSA decision on Turkish, Vietnamese steel

OTTAWA — The Canadian Steel Producers Association (CSPA) has issued a statement welcoming the Canada Border Services Agency‘s recent decision to apply retroactive duties on corrosion resistant steel sheet from Turkey and Vietnam. 

On Jan. 16, 2023, the CBSA initiated an investigation as part of its enforcement of the measures in force regarding products originating in or exported from the two countries, stated a release.

Based on the investigation, the CBSA has determined that retroactive assessments of the steel released into Canada from December 2021 to November 2022 could be required in some cases to ensure full compliance under the Special Import Measures Act.

“The trade remedy system remains the steel industry’s only shield against the unfair trade that continuously threatens our industry’s competitiveness,” said CSPA president Catherine Cobden in a statement. “The agency’s decision demonstrates that Canada takes unfair trade seriously and will use the tools at its disposal to combat these practices.

“We continue to remind the Canadian government that applying retroactivity to their determinations remains vital to ensuring fair trade in our country.”
