Effective November 2, 2017, provisional duties are no longer payable on certain silicon metal originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand.
On November 3, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) published it’s finding that the dumping and/or subsidizing of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from the countries listed above have not caused injury and are not threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. This follows a CBSA notice of Final Decisions on the dumping and subsidizing of certain silicon metal from October 3.
The goods in question are described as Silicon metal containing at least 96.00% but less than 99.99% silicon by weight, and silicon metal containing between 89.00% and 96.00% silicon by weight that contains aluminum greater than 0.20% by weight, of all forms and sizes, originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand.
Please note that this finding does not affect measures currently in force for silicon metal from China. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties on subject goods from China, continue unchanged.
Additional information is available in the CITT Finding issued on November 2, 2017.
The statement of reasons concerning this finding will be issued within 15 days.
