Expiry Review No.: RR-2007-002
Xanthates

On June 20, 2007, 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 March 4, 2003, in Inquiry No. NQ-2002-003, concerning xanthates originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China. As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (President) initiated an investigation on June 21, 2007 to determine whether the expiry of the 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 President has determined that the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from the People’s Republic of China.

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 Web site: 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 finding is likely to result in injury or retardation to the Canadian industry, and will make its decision by March 3, 2008.
