The Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiated an expiry review of its finding concerning the dumping and the subsidizing of certain carbon steel fasteners originating in or exported from China and Chinese Taipei (Taiwan).
The Tribunal’s finding, issued in January 2010 and renewed in 2015, imposed anti-dumping duties on these goods from Taiwan and anti-dumping and countervailing duties on goods from China.
In the first step of the review the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will determine, by March 26, 2020, if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and/or subsidizing of the goods if the finding is left to expire.
In the event of positive determinations by the Agency, the Tribunal will determine, by September 2, 2020, whether the continued or resumed dumping and/or subsidizing is likely to result in injury to Canadian manufacturers.
According to statistics published by the CBSA, 104,227,800 kilograms of the subject good were imported in 20187, resulting in the collection of $12,616,824 in anti-dumping duties.
