CITT initiation of final injury inquiry (published January 26 2017)

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today found that the dumping of gypsum board originating in or exported from the United States of America has caused injury to the domestic industry. Subject to the implementation of the Tribunal’s recommendations in Reference No. GC-2016-001, anti-dumping duties will be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainant in this case was CertainTeed Gypsum Canada Inc., of Mississauga, Ontario.

The CITT found that the imposition of provisional duties, in their full amount, is contrary to Canada’s economic, trade or commercial interests, and specifically that such an imposition has or would have the effect of substantially reducing competition in those markets or causing significant harm to consumers of those goods or to businesses who use them

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