Canadian International Trade Tribunal Finds Injury: Mattress Innerspring Units From China

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2009) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping of mattress innerspring units, with or without edgeguards, used in the manufacture of innerspring mattresses, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China had caused injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainant in this case was Globe Spring & Cushion Company Ltd. of Toronto, Ontario.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on December 9, 2009.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
