Tribunal Issues Preliminary Determination of Reasonable Indication of Injury – Concrete Reinforcing Bar from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain
Ottawa, Ontario, October 19, 2016
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that the alleged injurious dumping of certain concrete reinforcing bar originating or exported from the Republic of Belarus, Chinese Taipei, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Japan, the Portuguese Republic and the Kingdom of Spain has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.
The Tribunal’s preliminary injury inquiry was conducted pursuant to subsection 34(2) of the Special Import Measures Act as a result of the initiation of a dumping investigation by the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The CBSA will continue its investigation and, by November 17, 2016, will issue a preliminary determination.
The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
