Canada Begins Sunset Review of AD/CV Duty Orders on Copper Tube
Canadian authorities have begun an expiry (i.e., sunset) review of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on mainland Chinese circular copper tube with an outer diameter of 0.2 inch to 4.25 inches (0.502 centimetre to 10.795 centimetres), excluding industrial and coated or insulated copper tube, classified under HTSCA 7411.10.0010, 7411.10.0020, 7411.10.0031 and 7411.10.0039.
The Canada Border Services Agency will accept questionnaire responses and other information from interested parties through 28 December and will issue its determination by 18 April. In the event of a positive determination, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal will determine by 30 September 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 15 July.
