Canadian International Trade Tribunal Initiates Expiry Review

Whole Potatoes From the United States

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 30, 2009) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its order made on September 12, 2005, in Expiry Review No. RR-2004-006, concerning the dumping of certain whole potatoes imported from the United States for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia.

On April 29, 2010, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping. In the event of a positive determination, the Tribunal will determine, on September 10, 2010, whether the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury or retardation.

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, complaints about federal government procurement, appeals of customs and excise tax rulings and safeguard complaints. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.

Any interested person, association or government that wishes to participate in the Tribunal's expiry review may do so by filing a Notice of Participation.
