The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today initiated a preliminary injury inquiry into a complaint by AltaSteel Ltd, of Edmonton, Alberta, ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada, g.p., of Contrecoeur, Québec, and Gerdeau Longsteel North America, of Whitby, Ontario, that they have suffered injury as a result of the dumping of hot-rolled deformed steel concrete reinforcing bar in straight lengths or coils 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. The Tribunal’s inquiry is conducted pursuant to the Special Import Measures Act as a result of the initiation of a dumping investigation by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

On October 19, 2016, the Tribunal will determine whether there is a reasonable indication that the alleged dumping has caused injury. If so, the CBSA will continue its investigation and, by November 18, 2016, will issue a preliminary determination. If this preliminary determination indicates that there has been dumping, the CBSA will then continue its investigation and, concurrently, the Tribunal will initiate a final injury inquiry. Anti-dumping and/or countervailing duties will be imposed only if the Tribunal finds that dumped products are injuring or threatening to injure the Canadian producers.

Statement of reasons (added September 2 2016)

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today continued, with amendment, its orders made on August 15, 2011, in Expiry Review No. RR-2010-001, concerning the dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, Chinese Taipei, India and Ukraine and the subsidizing of those goods originating in or exported from India.

The Tribunal found that the dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip from Brazil, China and Ukraine and the subsidizing of those goods originating or exported from India were likely to result in injury. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will therefore continue to impose anti dumping and countervailing duties on these products.

Following the determination of the President of the CBSA that the expiry of the orders is unlikely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the aforementioned goods originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei and India, the Tribunal rescinded its orders with respect to those goods.
