Tribunal Initiates Expiry Review—Circular Copper Tube from Brazil, Greece, Korea, Mexico and China
Ottawa, Ontario, November 20, 2018—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its findings made on December 18, 2013, in Inquiry No. NQ‑2013‑004, to determine if the continued or resumed dumping of circular copper tube from the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Hellenic Republic, the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and the United Mexican States, and the continued or resumed subsidizing of those goods originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, are likely to result in injury.
On April 23, 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and/or subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on September 30, 2019, whether the continued or resumed dumping and/or subsidizing are 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.
