Tribunal Continues Orders—Copper Pipe Fittings from the United States, South Korea and China


Press release | September 14, 2022

Ottawa, Ontario, September 14, 2022—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today continued its orders made on November 28, 2016, in expiry review RR-2015-003, continuing, with amendment, its orders made on February 17, 2012, in expiry review RR-2011-001, continuing, without amendment, its findings made on February 19, 2007, in inquiry NQ-2006-002, concerning the dumping of copper pipe fittings originating in or exported from the United States of America, the Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China (China) and the subsidizing of the aforementioned goods originating in or exported from China.

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

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.
