Certain Whole Potatoes

Notice of Initiation


December 31, 2014

On December 30, 2014, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act, initiated an expiry review of its order made on September 10, 2010, in Expiry Review No. RR-2009-002, concerning the dumping of whole potatoes originating in or exported from the United States of America for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia, but excluding imports during the period from May 1 to July 31, inclusive, of each calendar year, seed potatoes, red potatoes, yellow potatoes, exotic potato varieties and white and russet potatoes imported in 50-lb. cartons in the following count sizes:  40, 50, 60 70 and 80.

The subject goods are generally classified under the following 10-digit Harmonized System classification numbers:

  • 0701.90.00.10
  • 0701.90.00.20

As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency initiated an investigation on December 31, 2014, to determine whether the expiry of the order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods. As part of its expiry review investigation, the CBSA forwarded questionnaires to domestic producers, importers and exporters (foreign producers).  Any domestic producers, importers or exporters that have not received a letter from the CBSA with the accompanying questionnaire and wish to provide a response to the questionnaire are advised to contact the officers identified below.  Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by February 5, 2014.

A detailed schedule for the investigation is available at www.cbsa.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/er-rre/menu-eng.html.
