On December 17, 2002, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal), pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its findings made on September 4, 1998 in Inquiry No. NQ-98-001; and on June 18, 1999, in Inquiry No. NQ-98-003 concerning certain stainless steel round bar originating in or exported from the Federal Republic of Germany, France, India, Italy, Japan, Spain, Sweden, Chinese Taipei, and the United Kingdom; and the Republic of Korea, respectively. As a result, the Commissioner of the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (Commissioner) commenced an investigation on December 18, 2002, to determine whether the expiry of the findings 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 findings is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods.
A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning the determinations made by the Commissioner will be issued within fifteen days. The Statement of Reasons will also be posted on the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency's Web site at:
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 and will make an order by September 3, 2003.
