Ottawa, Ontario, December 30, 2014
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) today initiated an expiry review of its order made on September 10, 2010, in Expiry Review No. RR-2009-002, to determine if the continued or resumed dumping of certain whole potatoes from the United States of America is likely to result in injury.
On April 29, 2015, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on September 9, 2015, whether the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury.
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.
Any interested person, association or government that wishes to participate in the Tribunal’s expiry review may do so by filing a Notice of Participation.
