Tribunal Initiates Expiry Review—Copper Pipe Fittings from the United States, Korea and China

Ottawa, Ontario, March 22, 2016

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today initiated an expiry review of its orders made on February 17, 2012, in Expiry Review No. RR-2011-001, to determine if the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing of copper pipe fittings from the United States of America, the Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China are likely to result in injury.

On July 20, 2016, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on November 28, 2016, whether the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing are likely to result in injury.

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.

Any interested person, association or government that wishes to participate in the Tribunal’s expiry review may do so by filing a Notice of Participation.
