The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today terminated its preliminary inquiry into a complaint by Command Drilling Products Ltd. that dumped and subsidized imports of drill pipe from the People’s Republic of China have caused or threatened to cause injury to, or have retarded the establishment of, the domestic industry.
The Tribunal determined that there was no reasonable indication that the alleged dumping and subsidizing have caused or threaten to cause injury or retardation. The Canada Border Services Agency will therefore terminate its dumping and subsidizing investigations and the Tribunal will not initiate a final injury inquiry.
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.
