Ottawa, Ontario, January 9, 2015

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping of concrete reinforcing bar, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey, and the subsidizing of concrete reinforcing bar, originating or exported from the People’s Republic of China, have not caused but are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainants in this case were Alta Steel Ltd. of Edmonton, Alberta, ArcelorMittal LCNA and ArcelorMittal Montreal Inc. of Contrecœur, Quebec, and Gerdau Longsteel North America of Whitby, Ontario.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on January 26, 2015.

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.
