Tribunal Initiates Expiry Review—Carbon Steel Welded Pipe from China

Press release | Ottawa, Ontario, February 19, 2024

Ottawa, Ontario, February 19, 2024—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its order made on March 28, 2019, in expiry review RR-2018-001, to determine if the expiry of the order is likely to lead to continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing of carbon steel welded pipe from the People’s Republic of China and is likely to result in injury to the domestic industry.

No later than July 18, 2024, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping or subsidizing. In the event of a positive determination, the Tribunal will determine, no later than December 24, 2024, whether the continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing is likely to result in injury to the domestic industry.

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 Form I—Notice of Participation.
