EXPIRY REVIEW OF ORDER

Certain fasteners

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal hereby gives notice that it will, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiate an expiry review (Expiry Review No. RR-2019-002) of its order made on January 5, 2015, in Expiry Review No. RR-2014-001, continuing, with amendment, its order made on January 6, 2010, in Expiry Review No. RR-2009-001, continuing, with amendment, its findings made on January 7, 2005, in Inquiry No. NQ-2004-005, concerning the dumping of certain carbon steel fasteners originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China and Chinese Taipei and the subsidizing of such products originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (the subject goods). Appendix A lists the products that were excluded from the Tribunal’s previous orders and findings regarding the subject goods.

In this expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will first determine whether the expiry of the order in respect of the subject goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing of the subject goods. If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and subsidizing, the Tribunal will then conduct an expiry review to determine if the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing are likely to result in injury. The CBSA will provide notice of its determinations within 150 days after receiving notice of the Tribunal’s decision to initiate an expiry review, that is, no later than March 26, 2020. The Tribunal will issue its order and its statement of reasons no later than September 2, 2020.

Each person or government wishing to participate in this expiry review must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal on or before April 14, 2020. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the expiry review must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before April 14, 2020.

The schedule for this expiry review is found on the Tribunal’s website.

The Tribunal will hold a public hearing relating to this expiry review in the Tribunal’s Hearing Room No. 1, 18th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, commencing on June 22, 2020, at 9:30 a.m., to hear evidence and representations by interested parties. If there are no opposing parties, the Tribunal may explore the possibility of holding a file hearing, i.e. a hearing through written submissions only, instead of an oral hearing.

In accordance with section 46 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, a person who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must, among other things, submit a non-confidential edited version or summary of the information designated as confidential, or a statement indicating why such a summary cannot be made.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding the Tribunal’s portion of this matter should be addressed to the Deputy Registrar, Canadian International Trade Tribunal Secretariat, 333 Laurier Avenue West, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613‑993‑3595 (telephone), citt-tcce@tribunal.gc.ca (email).

Further details regarding this expiry review, including the schedule of key events, are contained in the documents entitled “Additional Information” and “Expiry Review Schedule” appended to the notice of commencement of expiry review available on the Tribunal’s website.
