Government of Canada Initiates Expiry Review concerning Carbon Steel Plate

On May 9, 2019, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) initiated an expiry review of its finding of injury made on May 20, 2014, concerning the dumping of hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate originating or exported from Brazil, Denmark, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and Korea. 

On May 10, 2019, as a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry reviewinvestigation to determine whether the expiry of the above finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods. 

For detailed product descriptions of the subject goods and their tariff classification numbers, please refer to the Measures in Force.  

The CBSA will make a determination no later than October 4, 2019, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by October 18, 2019.

As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA has forwarded questionnaires to Canadian producers, importers and exporters. Any Canadian producers, importers or exporters who have not received a letter and wish to provide a response to the questionnaire or have additional questions concerning the expiry review are advised to contact by telephone:
