Ottawa, Ontario, November 16, 2020—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping of corrosion-resistant flat-rolled steel sheet products of carbon steel, originating in or exported from Turkey (excluding those goods exported by Borçelik Çelik Sanayi Ticaret A.Ş) and Vietnam, and the subsidizing of the aforementioned goods, originating in or exported from Turkey (excluding those goods exported by Atakaş Çelik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş, Borçelik Çelik Sanayi Ticaret A.Ş and Tatmetal Çelik Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.Ş.), have caused injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency.
The Tribunal also found that the volume of dumped goods, originating in or exported from the United Arab Emirates, and the volume of subsidized goods, originating in or exported from the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam, are negligible. The Tribunal therefore terminated its inquiry in respect of these goods.
The complainant in this case was ArcelorMittal Dofasco G.P., of Hamilton, Ontario.
The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its findings on December 1, 2020.
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.
