OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2012) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its finding made on August 20, 2008, in Inquiry No. NQ-2008-001, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of certain carbon steel welded pipe from China.

On April 4, 2013, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on August 19, 2013, whether the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing are likely to result in injury or retardation.

It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, complaints about federal government procurement, appeals of customs and excise tax rulings and safeguard complaints. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
