RB2 2022 ER: Certain concrete reinforcing bar
Notice of conclusion of expiry review investigation


On March 29, 2022, 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 finding made on May 3, 2017, in Inquiry No. NQ-2016-003, concerning the dumping of certain concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from Belarus, the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu (Chinese Taipei), the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (Hong Kong), Japan, Portugal and Spain.

As a result, on March 30, 2022, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the CITT’s finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods.

The expiry review 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 finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain.

A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning the determination made by the CBSA will be issued within 15 days.

The CITT will now conduct an expiry review to determine if the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury to the domestic industry, and has announced that it will issue its order no later than February 2, 2023.

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