On October 11, 2018, Canada announced provisional safeguards for certain steel goods that are listed in item 82 on the Import Control List (ICL). The safeguards will take the form of Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQ).

According to the notice, the TRQs apply “…to steel goods imported from all countries other than those originating in and imported from:

  • [T]he United States;

  • Chile;
  • Mexico, other than energy tubular products and wire rod originating in and imported from Mexico;

  • Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary; and

  • [A] country benefiting from the General Preferential Tariff, other than concrete reinforcing bar originating in and imported from Vietnam.”

The TRQs will go into effect on October 25, 2018.
