Tribunal Continues, with Amendment, Orders—Refined Sugar from the United States, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the European Union

Ottawa, Ontario, October 30, 2015

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today continued, with amendment, its orders made on November 1, 2010, in Expiry Review No. RR-2009-003, concerning the dumping of refined sugar from the United States of America, Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and the subsidizing of refined sugar from the European Union.

The Tribunal found that the dumping and subsidizing of refined sugar from the United States, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the European Union were likely to result in injury. The Canada Border Services Agency will therefore continue to impose anti-dumping and countervailing duties on this product.

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.
