Expiry No. LE-2018-002




The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) hereby gives notice, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), that its finding made on November 12, 2013, in Inquiry No. NQ-2013-002, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of unitized wall modules, with or without infill, including fully assembled frames, with or without fasteners, trims, cover caps, window operators, gaskets, load transfer bars, sunshades and anchor assemblies, excluding non-unitized building envelope systems, such as stick systems and point-fixing systems, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, is scheduled to expire on November 11, 2018, unless the Tribunal has initiated an expiry review.

Interested firms, organizations, persons or governments wishing to make submissions on whether an expiry review is warranted must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal on or before May 24, 2018. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in these proceedings must also file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before May 24, 2018. The Tribunal will distribute the list of participants on May 25, 2018. The deadline for filing submissions is June 5, 2018. If there are opposing views, each party may file a response no later than June 12, 2018.

Submissions should include concise argument and supporting evidence concerning:

  • the likelihood of continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing of the goods;
  • the likely volume and price ranges of dumped and subsidized imports if dumping and subsidizing were to continue or resume;
  • the domestic industry’s recent performance, including supporting data and statistics showing trends in production, sales, market share, domestic prices, costs and profits;
  • the likelihood of injury to the domestic industry if the finding were allowed to expire, having regard to the anticipated effects of a continuation or resumption of dumped and subsidized imports on the industry’s future performance;
  • any other developments affecting, or likely to affect, the performance of the domestic industry;
  • changes in circumstances, domestically or internationally, including changes in the supply of or demand for the goods, and changes in trends in, and sources of, imports into Canada; and
  • any other matter that is relevant.

Anyone who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must, among other things, submit a non-confidential edited version or summary, or a statement indicating why such a summary cannot be made. Please see the Tribunal’s Confidentiality Guidelines found at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca/en/Confidentiality_guidelines_e.

Documents should be filed electronically through the Tribunal’s Secure E-filing Service at https://efiling-depote-pub.citt-tcce.gc.ca/submit-eng.aspx. Only one electronic copy is required.

Counsel and parties are required to serve their submissions on each other on the same dates they file their submissions. Public submissions are to be served on counsel and those parties who are not represented by counsel. Confidential submissions are to be served only on counsel who have access to the confidential record and who have filed an undertaking with the Tribunal. This information will be included in the list of participants. Submissions that contain information that is confidential to your company/government or your client may be served by electronic means provided you are willing to accept the associated risks. Submissions that contain confidential information belonging to a company/government that is not your own or that is not represented by you must be served by courier. One electronic copy of proof of service must be served on the Tribunal.

The Tribunal will issue a decision on August 27, 2018, on whether an expiry review is warranted. If the Tribunal decides that an expiry review is not warranted, the finding will expire on its scheduled expiry date. If the Tribunal decides to initiate an expiry review, it will issue a notice of expiry review.
