Ottawa, January 7, 2020

On January 6, 2020, 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 order made on January 30, 2015, in Expiry Review No. RR-2014-002, concerning the dumping of certain hot-rolled carbon steel plate originating in or exported from Ukraine.

The CBSA will make a determination no later than June 4, 2020, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by June 19, 2020.
