EXPIRY REVIEW DECISION
Expiry Review No.: RR-2004-004
Certain hot-rolled steel plate

On October 13, 2004, 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 finding made on June 27, 2000, in Inquiry No. NQ 99 004, as amended on August 23, 2004, in Interim Review No. RD 2004 002, concerning the dumping of certain hot-rolled steel plate originating in or exported from Brazil, Finland, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Ukraine and the subsidizing of such goods originating in or exported from India, Indonesia and Thailand. As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation on October 14, 2004, to determine whether the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing of the goods.

The investigation has now been completed and today, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the President of the CBSA (the President) has determined that the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from Brazil, India, Indonesia and Ukraine and the subsidizing of the goods from India, Indonesia and Thailand. The President has also determined that the expiry of the finding is not likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from Finland and Thailand.

A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning the determination made by the President will be issued within fifteen days. The Statement of Reasons will be posted at the following web site: www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/menu-eng.html

The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of the finding is likely to result in injury or retardation to Canadian industry, and will make an order by June 27, 2005.
