On July 30, 2001, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the "Tribunal") initiated an expiry review, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), concerning faced rigid cellular polyurethane-modified polyisocyanurate thermal insulation board (polyiso insulation board) originating in or exported from the United States of America. As a result, the Commissioner of Customs and Revenue (the "Commissioner") commenced an investigation on July 31, 2001, to determine whether the expiry of the finding in respect of polyiso insulation board is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods.
The investigation has now been completed and, today, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the Commissioner has determined that the expiry of the finding made by the Tribunal is unlikely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods originating in or exported from the United States of America.
A Statement of Reasons which contains additional details concerning the determination made by the Commissioner will be issued within fifteen days. The Statement of Reasons will also be posted on the SIMA Web site at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/menu-eng.html.
Pursuant to subparagraph 76.03(12)(a)(i) of SIMA, the Tribunal will, on April 10, 2002, rescind the finding respecting those goods.
Any questions relating to the Commissioner's determination should be addressed to:
