Dumping of container chassis from China injures Canadian industry says CITT
Provisional anti-dumping duties could soon apply to importations of these goods
After conducting a preliminary injury inquiry the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) announced that it found a a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of certain container chassis, originating in or exported from China, have caused injury to the domestic industry.
Now that the Tribunal ruled on the question of injury, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will investigate to confirm that the imports are indeed being dumped and/or subsidized and will make a preliminary determination by September 8, 2021.
Provisional anti-dumping and/or countervailing duties could eventually be applicable to imports of the goods under investigation. In such a case the preliminary decisions of the Tribunal and the CBSA will have to be confirmed by final decisions.
