Tribunal Continues Order—Pup Joints from China

Press release | Ottawa, Ontario, December 29, 2022

Ottawa, Ontario, December 29, 2022—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today continued its order made on April 7, 2017, in expiry review RR‑2016‑001, continuing, without amendment, its finding made on April 10, 2012, in inquiry NQ‑2011‑001, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of pup joints originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The Tribunal found that the expiry of the order was likely to result in injury. As such, the Tribunal continued its order. The Canada Border Services Agency will therefore continue to impose anti-dumping and countervailing duties on this product.

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.
