Tribunal Initiates Inquiry—Gypsum Board from the United States of America

News release

Ottawa, Ontario, June 22, 2018—The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today initiated a preliminary injury inquiry into a complaint by CertainTeed Gypsum Canada Inc., of Mississauga, Ontario, that it has suffered injury as a result of the dumping of gypsum board from the United States of America. The Tribunal’s inquiry is conducted pursuant to the Special Import Measures Act as a result of the initiation of dumping investigations by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

On August 20, 2018, the Tribunal will determine whether there is a reasonable indication that the alleged dumping has caused injury. If so, the CBSA will continue its investigations and, by September 19, 2018, will issue a preliminary determination. If this preliminary determination indicates that there has been dumping, the CBSA will then continue its investigations and, concurrently, the Tribunal will initiate a final injury inquiry. Anti-dumping duties will be imposed only if the Tribunal finds that dumped products are injuring or threatening to injure the Canadian producers.

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.
