On April 25, 2007, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal), pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its order made on January 10, 2003, in Expiry Review No. RR-2001-006, concerning certain hot-rolled steel plate originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China), the Republic of South Africa (South Africa) and the Russian Federation (Russia).
As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (the President) initiated an investigation on April 26, 2007, 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 on August 23, 2007, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the President has determined that the expiry of the order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from China, South Africa and Russia.
A Statement of Reasons containing 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 website: www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/er-rre/menu-eng.html.
The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of the order is likely to result in injury or retardation to the Canadian industry, and will make its decision by January 9, 2008.
