Ottawa, August 28, 2018

On August 27, 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 12, 2013, in Inquiry No. NQ-2013-002, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain unitized wall modules originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

As a result of the CITT’s expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today initiated an expiry review investigation to determine, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, 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 CBSA will make a determination no later than January 25, 2019, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by February 8, 2019.

The subject goods are unitized wall modules, with or without infill, including fully assembled frames, with or without fasteners, trims, cover caps, window operators, gaskets, load transfer bars, sunshades and anchor assemblies; excluding non-unitized building envelope systems such as stick systems and point-fixing systems, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The subject goods are normally imported into Canada under the following tariff classification numbers:
