Canadian International Trade Tribunal Issues Order: Carbon Steel Pipe Nipples and Adaptor Fittings From China

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today issued an order following the expiry review of its finding made on July 16, 2003, as amended on June 8, 2007, concerning carbon steel pipe nipples and adaptor fittings, in nominal diameters up to and including 6 inches or the metric equivalents, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China.

The Tribunal found that the dumping of carbon steel pipe nipples and adaptor fittings from China was likely to result in injury or retardation. The Canada Border Services Agency will therefore continue to 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.
