Expiry Review No.: RR-2009-001
Certain Carbon and Stainless Steel Fasteners

On April 22, 2009, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its findings made on January 7, 2005, in Inquiry No. NQ 2004 005, concerning the dumping of certain carbon steel fasteners, excluding fasteners specifically designed for application in the automotive or aerospace industry, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China (China) and Chinese Taipei and the subsidizing of such products originating in or exported from China, and the dumping of certain stainless steel fasteners, excluding fasteners specifically designed for application in the automotive or aerospace industry, originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei.

As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (the President) commenced an investigation on April 23, 2009, to determine whether the expiry of the findings is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the goods.

The investigation has now been completed and, on August 20, 2009, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the President has determined that the expiry of the findings is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from China and Chinese Taipei, and the subsidizing of such product from China.

A Statement of Reasons containing additional details concerning the determinations made by the President will be issued within 15 days. It 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 findings is likely to result in injury or retardation to the Canadian industry, and is scheduled to make its decision by January 6, 2010.
