Ottawa, Ontario, May 9, 2019-The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its finding made on May 20, 2014, in Inquiry No. NQ‑2013‑005, to determine if the continued or resumed dumping of hot-rolled carbon steel plate from the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Kingdom of Denmark, the Republic of Indonesia, the Italian Republic, Japan and the Republic of Korea is likely to result in injury.
On October 4, 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping. In the event of a positive determination, the Tribunal will determine, on March 13, 2020, whether the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury.
The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
Any interested person, association or government that wishes to participate in the Tribunal’s expiry review may do so by filing a Notice of Participation.
