Canada Launches AD/CV Probes of Stainless Steel Sinks from China
The Canada Border Services Agency announced Oct. 27 that it is initiating investigations into the alleged injurious dumping and subsidization of certain stainless steel sinks originating in or exported from China. The CBSA’s decision is expected by Jan. 25, 2012. In addition, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal will begin a preliminary inquiry to determine whether these imports are harming Canadian producers, with a decision due by Dec. 28. If the CITT determines that an unusually large increase in harmful imports has occurred prior to the CBSA’s decision and that the retroactive application of antidumping or countervailing duties is therefore justified, such duties could be levied on covered goods brought into Canada on and after Oct. 27.
