Canadian International Trade Tribunal Issues Orders: Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Plate From China, South Africa and Russia

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 9, 2008) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today issued orders following the expiry review of its order made on January 10, 2003, concerning hot-rolled carbon steel plate originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China (China), the Republic of South Africa (South Africa) and the Russian Federation (Russia).

The Tribunal found that the dumping of hot-rolled steel plate from China is likely to result in injury or retardation. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will therefore continue to impose anti-dumping duties on these products.

The Tribunal also found that the dumping of hot-rolled steel plate from South Africa and Russia is unlikely to result in injury or retardation. The CBSA will therefore no longer impose anti-dumping duties on these products.

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.
