Tribunal finds dumping of cold-rolled steel from three countries injures Canadian industry

After completing its preliminary injury inquiry the Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced that it found a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of cold-rolled steel from China, South Korea and Vietnam have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

In May 2018 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation into the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of the goods in question following a complaint filed by a Canadian manufacturer located in Hamilton, Ontario..

Now that the Tribunal ruled on the question of injury, the CBSA will investigate to confirm that the imports are indeed being dumped and/or subsidized and will make a preliminary determination by August 20, 2018.

Provisional anti-dumping and/or countervailing 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.
