Certain Concrete Reinforcing Bar Notice of Initiation of Expiry Review Investigation

On December 9, 2019, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) initiated an expiry review concerning the dumping of certain hot-rolled deformed steel concrete reinforcing bar in straight lengths or coils, commonly identified as rebar, in various diameters up to and including 56.4 millimeters, in various finishes, excluding plain round bar and fabricated rebar products, originating or exported from the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey, and the subsidizing of the aforementioned goods originating or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has also today initiated an expiry review investigation to determine, whether the expiry of the finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods.  The CBSA will make a determination no later than May 7, 2020, and will issue a Statement of Reasons by May 22, 2020.

As part of its investigation, the CBSA forwarded questionnaires to Canadian producers, importers, exporters/foreign producers and to the Government of China.  Any Canadian producers, importers or exporters/foreign producers who have not received a letter from the CBSA who wish to provide a response to the questionnaire are advised to contact the officers indicated in the expiry review.  Responses to all questionnaires are due at the CBSA’s office in Ottawa by January 16, 2020.
