Canadian International Trade Tribunal Issues Orders

Flat Hot-Rolled Carbon and Alloy Steel Sheet and Strip from Brazil, China, Chinese Taipei, India, South Africa and Ukraine

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 15, 2011) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today issued orders following the expiry review of its order made on August 16, 2006, in Expiry Review No. RR-2005-002, concerning the dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from Brazil, China, Chinese Taipei, India, South Africa and Ukraine and the subsidizing of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from India.

The majority of the Tribunal found that the expiry of the order concerning flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from Brazil, China, Chinese Taipei, India and Ukraine would likely cause injury to the domestic industry and continued its order in respect of these goods. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will therefore continue to impose anti-dumping duties and/or countervailing on these goods.

In addition, following the determination made by the President of the CBSA on March 31, 2011, that the expiry of the Tribunal's order was unlikely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from South Africa, the Tribunal rescinded its order in respect of these goods. The CBSA will therefore not continue to impose anti-dumping duties on hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from South Africa.

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.
