Duties on stainless steel sinks from China could expire in May

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal's May 2012 findings concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain stainless steel sinks from China are scheduled to expire on May 24, 2017.

Under Canadian law, findings of injury or threat of injury and the associated special protection in the form of anti-dumping or countervailing duties expire five years from the date of the last order or finding, unless an expiry review has been initiated before that date.

The Tribunal is now consulting interested parties to determine if the findings should be left to expire or if it should conduct a review which could prolong them.

Parties requesting or opposing the initiation of an expiry review of the findings must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal's Secretary on or before March 1, 2017.

The Tribunal will issue a decision on April 4, 2017, on whether an expiry review is warranted. If the Tribunal decides that an expiry review is not warranted, the order will expire on its scheduled expiry date. If the Tribunal decides to initiate an expiry review, it will issue a notice of expiry review.

For additional information and a detailed description of the goods at issue see: Expiry No. LE-2016-002
