More time needed in investigation of dumping of small power transformers from three countries
Circumstances make it unusually difficult for CBSA to make a preliminary determination within ninety days
Due to the existence of circumstances that make it unusually difficult to make a preliminary determination regarding the alleged injurious dumping of certain small power transformers from Austria, Chinese Taipei and South Korea within the normal ninety days, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that it extended the 90-day period for making preliminary decisions, pertaining to all or part of the investigations, to 135 days.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal determined in June that there is preliminary evidence that dumping has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to Canadian industry. Provisional anti-dumping duties could be applied to the goods in question if CBSA confirms that they are the subject of dumping.
The decision by CBSA to issue its preliminary determination, or to terminate all or part of the investigation, will now be made on or before August 27, 2021.
