Canadian International Trade Tribunal Issues Order: Certain Whole Potatoes

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2010) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today issued an order following the expiry review of its order made on September 12, 2005, in Expiry Review No. RR-2004-006 concerning the dumping of certain whole potatoes originating in or exported from the United States of America for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia.

The Tribunal found that the expiry of the order would likely result in injury to the growers of all or almost all of the potato production in British Columbia in the near to medium term. 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.
