Canadian authorities have begun an expiry (i.e., sunset) review of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on mainland Chinese aluminium extrusions produced via an extrusion process of alloys having metallic elements falling within the alloy designations published by The Aluminum Association commencing with 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 or 7 (or proprietary or other certifying body equivalents), with the finish being as extruded (mill), mechanical, anodised or painted or otherwise coated, whether or not worked, having a wall thickness greater than 0.5 mm, with a maximum weight per metre of 22 kg and a profile or cross-section which fits within a circle having a diameter of 254 mm, excluding certain products. Subject merchandise is normally classified under HTSCA 7604.10.0030, 7604.10.0040, 7604.21.0010, 7604.21.0090, 7604.29.0011, 7604.29.0019, 7604.29.0021, 7604.29.0029, 7604.29.0030, 7608.10.0010, 7608.10.0090, 7608.20.0000, 7610.10.0010, 7610.10.0020, 7610.10.0030, 7610.90.1010, 7610.90.1020, 7610.90.1030, 7610.90.1090, 7610.90.9010, 7610.90.9020, 7610.90.9030 and 7610.90.9090.
The Canada Border Services Agency will accept questionnaire responses and other information from interested parties through 15 April and will issue its determination by 6 August. In the event of a positive determination, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal will determine by 13 January 2020 whether the continued or resumed dumping or subsidising is likely to result in injury or retardation. The CITT will hold a public hearing in connection with this review on 4 November.
