ORDER

WHEREAS Universal Consumer Products Inc.

WHEREAS the appeal is scheduled to be heard on February 2, 2012;

AND WHEREAS the disruption to the President of the Canada Border Services Agency and Aluminart Products Limited could be minimized by limiting Universal’s intervention to a written brief on the issue of “kits” and proceeding with the hearing on the originally scheduled day;

THE TRIBUNAL ORDERS as follows:

  • By noon on January 27, 2012, Universal shall file with the Tribunal a written brief on the issue of “kits” and “finished goods” in relation to the goods in issue in the current appeal and shall forthwith serve the parties with copies.
  • By end of day on February 1, 2012, the parties may file written replies to Universal’s brief and shall forthwith serve Universal with copies. Alternatively, the parties may reserve their replies, if any, to oral argument at the hearing.
