OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2012) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping of liquid dielectric transformers having a top power handling capacity equal to or exceeding 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea had caused injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainants in this case were ABB, Inc. of Varennes, Quebec, and CG Power Systems Canada Inc. of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on December 5, 2012.
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.
