Tribunal finds dumping of 54-inch gypsum board from the U.S. does not injure Canadian industry

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal conducted a preliminary injury inquiry into whether the evidence discloses a reasonable indication that the alleged injurious dumping of 55" gypsum board from the United States of America, imported into Canada for use or consumption in western provinces was causing injury to Canadian producers.

This preliminary injury inquiry follows the notification, on June 21, 2018, that the President of the Canada Border Services Agency had initiated an investigation into the alleged injurious dumping of the above-mentioned goods.

The investigation is the result of a complaint filed by a manufacturer in Ontario. The complainant alleges that the dumped goods have caused material retardation to the domestic industry in Western Canada.

The Tribunal determined that the evidence does not disclose a reasonable indication that the dumping of the subject goods has caused injury or retardation or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

Pursuant to the Special Import Measures Act, the Tribunal terminated the preliminary injury inquiry with respect to the subject goods.
