The CITT will only initiate a review if it determines that there is sufficient information for such a review to be performed. If a review is not initiated, the order will be allowed to expire as scheduled on 1 March. Submissions may address such issues as the likelihood of continued or resumed dumping and subsidising of the goods, the likely volume and price ranges of dumped and subsidised imports if dumping and subsidising were to continue or resume, the domestic industry’s recent performance, including trends in production, sales, market share and profits, and the likelihood of injury to the domestic industry if the orders were allowed to expire. The CITT will issue a decision by 5 February on whether an expiry review is warranted.
