Tribunal Initiates Expiry Review—Copper Pipe Fittings from Vietnam

Press release | Ottawa, Ontario, January 16, 2023

Ottawa, Ontario, January 16, 2023—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its finding made on May 25, 2018, in inquiry NQ‑2017‑004, to determine if the expiry of the finding is likely to lead to continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing of certain copper pipe fittings from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and is likely to result in injury to the domestic industry.

On June 15, 2023, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping or subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on November 22, 2023, 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.
