ORDER OF THE TRIBUNAL

WHEREAS, information designated confidential has been filed with the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) in the above-noted proceedings;

WHEREAS, BHP New Zealand Steel Ltd. filed a notice of appearance received by the Tribunal on May 7, 2001, and is represented by Mr. Donald Goodwin of Tracon Consultants Ltd. (Tracon), Ottawa, Ontario;

WHEREAS Mr. Evgeny Pavlenko filed a notice of appearance with the Tribunal on May 7, 2001, as counsel of record also representing BHP New Zealand Steel Ltd;

WHEREAS, on May 7, 2001, Mr. Pavlenko filed a declaration and undertaking with the Tribunal for access to the confidential information in the record of the above-noted proceedings in accordance with subsection 45(3) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act;

AND WHEREAS, the Tribunal, under subsection 45(3) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, may disclose confidential information filed pursuant to subsection 46(1) to counsel for any party to those proceedings or to other proceedings arising out of those proceedings, for use by counsel only in those proceedings, subject to any conditions that the Tribunal considers reasonably necessary or desirable;

WHEREAS on July 16, 2001, the Tribunal circulated to counsel of record Mr. Pavlenko's curriculum vitae along with a letter of May 8, 2001, filed by Mr. Goodwin of Tracon which provided additional details in regards to Mr. Pavlenko's curriculum vitae;

WHEREAS Mr. Goodwin's letter of May 8, 2001, indicated that Mr. Pavlenko was formerly a Trade Commissioner of the Russian Federation and advises clients from Russia on issues of trade matters, that he is an independent consultant engaged by Tracon on a full-time basis on trade matters and that he is not an employee of Tracon;

NOW THEREFORE THE TRIBUNAL ORDERS:

THAT Mr. Pavlenko be granted access to the confidential record in these proceedings and in other proceedings arising out of these proceedings, subject to the terms and conditions contained in his declaration and undertaking and to the further condition that he may only obtain access to the confidential record through or under the control and direction of Mr. Goodwin of Tracon Consultants Ltd. in the offices of Mr. Goodwin, in Ottawa, Ontario, or through or under the control and direction of Mr. Goodwin of Tracon Consultants Ltd. at the offices of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal in Ottawa, Ontario, as acknowledged by Mr. Goodwin.
