Canadian International Trade Tribunal Finds Injury Thermoelectric Containers From China

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2008) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping and subsidizing of thermoelectric containers that provide cooling and/or warming with the use of a passive heat sink and a thermoelectric module, excluding liquid dispensers, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China had caused injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainant in this case was Koolatron Corporation of Brantford, Ontario.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding by December 29, 2008.

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.
