Government of Canada Initiates Expiry Review on Thermoelectric Containers

On September 10, 2018, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) advised that it had initiated an expiry review of the dumping and subsidizing of certain thermoelectric containers originating in or exported from China.

The subject goods are defined as thermoelectric containers that provide cooling and/or warming with the use of a passive heat sink and a thermoelectric module, excluding liquid dispensers, originating in/or exported from the People’s Republic of China.  The exclusion of liquid dispensers from the definition is intended to exclude such products as water coolers, cream dispensers and milk dispensers.

Interested parties wishing to make submissions on whether an expiry review is warranted must file a notice of participation with the CITT on or before September 26, 2018.

Each counsel who intends to represent a party in these proceedings must also file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before September 26, 2018. The Tribunal will distribute the list of participants on September 27, 2018. The deadline for filing submissions is October 5, 2018. If there are opposing views, each party may file a response no later than October 16, 2018.

Inquiries regarding the notice should be sent to:
