CITT issues preliminary injury determination on certain container chassis from China

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT), on August 9, 2021, determined that there is reasonable evidence that the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of certain container chassis originating in or exported from China have caused injury to the Canadian domestic industry.

This preliminary injury determination follows the notification on June 10, 2021, that the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) had initiated investigations into the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of the above-mentioned goods.

The subject goods are described as container chassis, typically used in the transportation of intermodal cargo containers and are skeletal rectangular framed trailers.

For a detailed product definition, including exclusions and the applicable HS classification numbers, please refer to the CBSA’s initiation of investigation

 A preliminary determination by CBSA of dumping can be expected within 30 days, at which time, depending on CBSA’s decision, provisional duties may commence.

The CITT preliminary injury determination is available on CITT’s website.

The statement of reasons containing additional details of the determination will be posted on CITT’s website within 15 days.
