On December 1, 2010, 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 orders made on August 16, 2006, in Expiry Review No. RR-2005-002, continuing its finding made on August 17, 2001, in Inquiry No. NQ-2001-001, concerning the dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip originating in or exported from Brazil, the People's Republic of China (China), Chinese Taipei, India, South Africa and Ukraine and the subsidizing of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip originating in or exported from India.
As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation on December 2, 2010, to determine whether the expiry of the orders is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or 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 orders is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods from Brazil, China, Chinese Taipei, India and Ukraine, and the continuation or resumption of the subsidizing of such goods from India. Furthermore, the President has determined that the expiry of the orders is unlikely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from South Africa.
A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning the determinations made by the President will be issued within fifteen days. The Statement of Reasons will be posted on the CBSA's Web site at: 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 orders is likely to result in injury or retardation to the Canadian industry, and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than August 15, 2011.
