The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced on October 3 that it terminated the dumping investigation in respect of certain silicon metal exported to Canada from Brazil by Rima Industrial S.A., as the goods were not dumped, and from Norway by Elkem AS (Elkem), as the margin of dumping was insignificant.
The CBSA also terminated the subsidy investigation in respect of imports of the same goods from Thailand by Sica New Materials (Thailand) Co., Inc., and certain silicon metal originating in or exported from Thailand by all other exporters, as the amounts of subsidy were insignificant.
On the same day, the CBSA made final determinations of dumping in respect of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, and Thailand, and subsidizing in respect of the same goods from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, and Norway concerning exporters for which the dumping and/or subsidy investigation has not been terminated.
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by November 2, 2017.
The CBSA says that provisional duties will continue to apply on imports of subject goods originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand until the date of the CITT’s order or finding. However, the provisional duties relating to the dumping of goods by Elkem, the subsidization of goods by Sica, and the subsidization of goods originating in or exported from Thailand by all other exporters will no longer apply, and the provisional duty paid or security posted will be returned.< Return
