Canadian International Trade Tribunal Finds Threat of Injury: Silicon Metal From China

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 19, 2013) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping and subsidizing of silicon metal containing at least 96.00 percent but less than 99.99 percent silicon by weight, and silicon metal containing between 89.00 percent and 96.00 percent silicon by weight that contains aluminum greater than 0.20 percent by weight, of all forms and sizes, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China have not caused injury but were threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainants in this case were Québec Silicon Limited Partnership and its affiliate QSIP Canada ULC of Bécancour, Quebec.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on December 4, 2013.

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.
