In December 2015 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiated an expiry review of its 2001 finding (renewed several times since) concerning the dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip, originating in or exported from Brazil, China, Chinese Taipei, India (India) and Ukraine, and the subsidizing of such products from India.
Following the Tribunal's announcement the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the finding was likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.
The CBSA's investigation has now been completed and the Agency has determined that the expiry of the finding:
• is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods from Brazil, China and Ukraine,
• is unlikely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods Chinese Taipei and India; and
• is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of such goods from India.
The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its finding is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and will issue its decision by August 14, 2016.
