November 4, 2019 – On October 28, 2019, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) initiated an expiry review of its order made on January 5, 2015, concerning the dumping of certain carbon steel fasteners originating in or exported from China and Taiwan and the subsidizing of said goods originating or exported from China.
As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, on October 29, 2019, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the above finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.
The CBSA will make a determination no later than March 26, 2020, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by April 9, 2020.
For detailed product descriptions of the subject goods and their tariff classification numbers as well as a list of the products excluded from the finding, please refer to the Measures in Force.
As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA has forwarded questionnaires to Canadian producers, importers and exporters/foreign producers and the Government of China. Any Canadian producers, importers or exporters/foreign producers 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:
Manshun Tong: 613-954-1666
Joël Joyal: 613-954-7173
Or by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by December 5, 2019.
The complete CITT Notice of Expiry Review containing additional information and an expiry review schedule is available on the CITT website.
