Tribunal finds dumping of PET resin from four countries injures Canadian industry

After completing its preliminary injury inquiry the Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced that it found a reasonable indication that the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of certain polyethylene terephthalate resin (PET resin) from China, India, Oman and Pakistan has caused injury to the domestic industry.

In August the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation into the alleged injurious dumping of the goods in question following a complaint filed by a manufacturer Quebec.

Now that the Tribunal ruled on the question of injury, the CBSA will investigate to confirm that the imports are indeed being dumped and will make a preliminary determination by November 16, 2017.

Provisional anti-dumping duties could soon be applicable to imports of the goods under investigation. In such a case the preliminary decisions of the Tribunal and the CBSA will have to be confirmed by final decisions.
