Certain Silicon Metal
Notice of Expiry Review Decision
Ottawa, March 15, 2019
On October 16, 2018, 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 November 19, 2013, in Inquiry No. NQ-2013-003, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from China.
As a result, on October 17, 2018, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the finding 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 finding:
- is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from China; and
- 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 finding is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry, and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than August 22, 2019.
