News Release

Ottawa, Ontario, February 15, 2017—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has completed the interim review of its order made on January 5, 2015, in Expiry Review Inquiry No. RR-2014-001, in respect of certain carbon steel fasteners originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China and Chinese Taipei.

The Tribunal amended its order to exclude the following goods: shoulder bolts made of steel, grade 5, and zinc-plated, with a hexagonal head, an unthreaded cylindrical shoulder section ranging from 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch in diameter, and a threaded section that is smaller in diameter than the shoulder ranging from 3/8 inch to 7/8 inch in length and between 10-24 and 5/8-11 in common thread sizes.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
