SUG 2020 ER: Refined sugar
Expiry review determination

Ottawa, March 1, 2021

On October 2, 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 orders made on October 30, 2015, in Expiry Review No. RR‑2014‑006, continuing, with amendment, its findings made on November 6, 1995, in Inquiry No. NQ‑95‑002, concerning the dumping of refined sugar, originating in or exported from the United States of America, Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and the subsidizing of refined sugar originating in or exported from the European Union.

As a result, on October 5, 2020, 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 of America
  2. is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of such goods originating in or exported from Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and
  3. is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of subsidizing of such goods originating in or exported from the European Union

A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning this decision will be available within 15 days.

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 August 6, 2021.

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