Expiry Review No.: RR-2003-001
Certain Carbon Steel Plate

On July 23, 2003, 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 order made on May 17, 1999, in Review No. RR-98-004, continuing without amendment its finding made on May 17, 1994, in Inquiry No NQ-93-004, concerning certain hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy plate not further manufactured than hot-rolled, heat-treated or not, in cut lengths, originating in or exported from Italy, the Republic of Korea, Spain and Ukraine. As a result, the Commissioner of Customs and Revenue (Commissioner) commenced an investigation on July 24, 2003, to determine whether the expiry of the order 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 order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods.

A Statement of Reasons that 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 Canada Customs and Revenue Agency 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 Canadian industry and will make an order by May 17, 2004.
