Canada Starts Review on HR Steel from Brazil, China, Ukraine,India
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has initiated an expiry review of its order made on August 12, 2016, in Expiry Review No RR-2015-002, to determine if the expiry of the order is likely to lead to continued or resumed dumping of flat hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel sheet and strip, originating in or exported from Brazil, the People’s Republic of China and Ukraine and subsidizing of such products originating in or exported from India, and is likely to result in injury. No later than December 6, 2021, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping or subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on May 13, 2022, whether the continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing is likely to result in injury.
