Tribunal Initiates Final Injury Inquiry—Concrete Reinforcing Bar from Belarus, CHinese Taipei, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Portugal and Spain

Ottawa, Ontario, January 4, 2017

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today initiated a final inquiry to determine whether the dumping of concrete reinforcing bar (the subject goods) originating in 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. This final injury inquiry was initiated following the Tribunal’s preliminary determination of injury dated October 19, 2016, and further to a notice received from the Canada Border Services Agency on January 3, 2016, stating that it made a preliminary determination of dumping respecting the subject goods.

On May 3, 2017, the Tribunal will determine whether the dumping of the subject goods has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

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.
