Government of Canada initiates expiry review on steel grating from China

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) advised on March 29, 2021 that it has initiated an expiry review of its order made on April 18, 2016, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain steel grating originating in or exported from China.

Concurrently, on March 30, 2021, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the above order 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 August 26, 2021, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by September 9, 2021.  

For detailed product descriptions, including exclusions and the tariff classifications of the subject goods, please refer to the steel grating case in the Measures in Force

As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA has forwarded questionnaires to Canadian producers, importers, exporters and the Government of China.
