SML 2020 ER: Photovoltaic modules and laminates
Expiry review determination

Ottawa, October 16, 2020

On May 21, 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 finding made on July 3, 2015, in Inquiry No. NQ‑2014‑003, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain photovoltaic modules and laminates originating or exported from China.

As a result, on May 22, 2020, 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:

  1. is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from China and
  2. 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.

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 March 25, 2021.

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