According to Mining News Pro -According to the latest updates, The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) announced its preliminary determination in the injury inquiry against imports of corrosion-resistant flat-rolled steel sheet products of carbon steel from India, China, Taiwan, and South Korea.


"There is a reasonable indication that the dumping of corrosion-resistant steel sheet from the People`s Republic of China, Chinese Taipei, the Republic of India and the Republic of Korea has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry," the CITT said in a press release.


The Tribunal`s inquiry was conducted as a result of a dumping investigation by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that was initiated on 26 May’18 in response to the petition filed by local steelmaker Arcelor Mittal, Dofasco GP, and supported by Stelco Inc.


CBSA hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. Dumping typically refers to imports sold at less than fair value to the detriment of domestic producers.


The CBSA will continue its own investigation and, by 24 Oct’18, will issue a preliminary determination in a multi-step process that could result in countermeasures to protect domestic producers, the release said.


The subject goods on which injury has been found are defined as:
Corrosion-resistant flat-rolled steel sheet products of carbon steel including products alloyed with the following elements:
Boron (B) not more than 0.01%,
Niobium (Nb) not more than 0.100%,
Titanium (Ti) not more than 0.08%, or
Vanadium (V) not more than 0.300%


in coils or cut lengths, in thicknesses up to 0.168 inch (4.267 mm) and width up to 72 inch (1,828.8 mm) with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards, chemically passivated, originating in or exported from China, Taiwan, India, and South Korea and excluding:
• Unpassivated corrosion-resistant steel sheet products;
