If the Canada Border Services Agency makes a preliminary determination of dumping or subsidizing, we start a final injury inquiry pursuant to the Special Import Measures Act. The Agency may levy provisional duties on imports from the date of the preliminary determination and continues its investigation until it makes a final determination of dumping or subsidizing.
We must issue our finding within 120 days from the date of the Agency’s preliminary determination of dumping or subsidizing. We have an additional 15 days to issue reasons supporting our finding. A Tribunal finding of injury or retardation or threat of injury to a domestic industry is required for the imposition of anti-dumping or countervailing duties by the Agency. The finding remains in place for up to five years.
