On October 15, 2001, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) initiated an expiry review pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA). This expiry review relates to the Tribunal's finding made on April 26, 1997, in Inquiry No. NQ-96-004, concerning concrete panels reinforced with fiberglass mesh, originating in or exported from the United States of America and produced by or on behalf of Custom Building Products, its successors or assigns, for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia or Alberta.
As a consequence of the Tribunal's initiation of the expiry review, the Commissioner of Customs and Revenue (Commissioner) commenced an investigation on October 16, 2001, to determine whether the expiry of the Tribunal's finding 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 likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods.
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 be posted on the SIMA Web site at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/er-rre/menu-eng.html.
Pursuant to subsection 76.03(10) of SIMA, the Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury or retardation to the Canadian industry. The Tribunal will issue an order by June 26, 2002.
Any questions relating to the Commissioner's determination should be addressed to:
