Tribunal finds dumping of silicon metal from six countries is no threat to domestic industry

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced that it found that the dumping and subsidizing of silicon metal, originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand have not caused and are not threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

The goods at issue are further described as silicon metal containing at least 96.00% but less than 99.99% silicon by weight, and silicon metal containing between 89.00% and 96.00% silicon by weight that contains aluminum greater than 0.20% by weight, of all forms and sizes.

In light of the Tribunal's decision, anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of those goods will not be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency.

The complainant in this case was a manufacturer from Quebec. The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on November 17, 2017.
