Certain Thermoelectric Containers
Notice of Expiry Review Decision
Ottawa, March 29, 2019
On October 30, 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 order made on December 9, 2013, in Expiry Review No. RR-2012-004, continuing, without amendment, its finding made on December 11, 2008, in Inquiry No. NQ-2008-002, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain thermoelectric containers that provide cooling and/or warming with the use of a passive heat sink and a thermoelectric module, excluding liquid dispensers, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).
As a result, on October 31, 2018, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the order 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 order:
- 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 order is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry, and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than September 5, 2019.
