Expiry Review Decision

Copper Pipe Fittings

Ottawa, July 20, 2016

On March 22, 2016, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT), pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its orders made on February 17, 2012, in Expiry Review No. RR-2011-001, continuing, without amendment, its findings made on February 19, 2007, in Inquiry No. NQ-2006-002, concerning the dumping of copper pipe fittings originating in or exported from the United States of America (United States), the Republic of Korea (Korea) and the People’s Republic of China (China) and the subsidizing of such goods originating in or exported from China.

As a result, on March 23, 2016, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the orders is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.

The investigation has now been completed and today, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the CBSA has determined that the expiry of the orders:

  1. is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from the United States;
  2. is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from Korea and China; and
  3. is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of such goods originating in or exported from China.

A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning the determination made by the CBSA will be issued within 15 days. The Statement of Reasons will be posted on the CBSA’s website at: www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/er-rre/menu-eng.html

The CITT will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its orders is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than November 28, 2016.

Questions relating to the CBSA’s determination should be addressed to the following officer:
