Ottawa, Ontario, October 2, 2020—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its orders made on October 30, 2015, in Expiry Review No. RR-2014-006, to determine if the expiry of the orders is likely to lead to continued or resumed dumping of refined sugar from the United States of America, Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and subsidizing of the aforementioned goods from the European Union. The Tribunal must also determine if the continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing is likely to result in injury.
On March 1, 2021, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping or subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on August 6, 2021, whether the continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing is 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.
