CBSA Updates Administrative Policies to Strengthen Canada’s Anti-Dumping Program

Posted by Matt Schmitt on 7/22/19 5:00 PM

On July 19, 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) updated its administrative policies in order to “strengthen Canada’s anti-dumping regime to better protect Canadian industry from unfair trade practices.”

The CBSA updated Memorandum D14-1-8, which included some of the following improvements:
  • Provides criteria for determining when to start the investigative process;
  • Provides specific factors in determining if a full re-investigation or a streamlined normal value review is required;
  • Allows CBSA to state normal values in a currency other than that of the country under investigation;
  • Allows CBSA to make retroactive assessments.

Additionally, the memorandum implements the “normal value review” process, which allows CBSA to conduct reviews “in respect of a single exporter only and not the country or market as a whole”, which enables CBSA to update normal values more timely and efficiently.
