Tribunal Issues its Opinion Regarding Public Interest Inquiry—Concrete Reinforcing Bar from China, Korea and Turkey

Ottawa, Ontario, December 22, 2015

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today issued its opinion and supporting reasons concerning the rate of duty resulting from its finding made on January 9, 2015, in Inquiry No. NQ-2014-001, respecting concrete reinforcing bar originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey.

In accordance with paragraph 45(4)(a) of the Special Import Measures Act, the Tribunal will not provide a report to the Minister of Finance because it is of the opinion that the public interest does not warrant a reduction or elimination of the anti-dumping and countervailing duties resulting from the above-mentioned finding.

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.
