The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping with respect to certain concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal preliminarily found on October 19, 2016 that there is a reasonable indication that the dumping of the goods has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.
Provisional duties at rates of up to 109.2% will now be payable on the subject goods that are released from customs on or after January 3, 2017.
The Tribunal will now formally determine if the dumping is causing prejudice to Canadian industry and is expected to issue its decision on May 3, 2017.
