Tribunal Initiates Expiry Review—Stainless Steel Sinks from China

Press release | Ottawa, Ontario, November 28, 2022

Ottawa, Ontario, November 28, 2022—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its order made on February 8, 2018, in expiry review RR-2017-001, to determine if the expiry of the order is likely to lead to continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing of certain stainless steel sinks from the People’s Republic of China, and is likely to result in injury to the domestic industry.

On April 27, 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 October 4, 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.
