CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE TRIBUNAL

COMMENCEMENT OF INTERIM REVIEW

Aluminum extrusions

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) hereby gives notice that, pursuant to subsection 76.01(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), it has initiated an interim review (Interim Review Nos. RD-2011-001 and RD-2011-003) of its findings made on March 17, 2009, in Inquiry No. NQ-2008-003, respecting the dumping and subsidizing of aluminum extrusions produced via an extrusion process of alloys having metallic elements falling within the alloy designations published by The Aluminum Association commencing with 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 or 7 (or proprietary or other certifying body equivalents), with the finish being as extruded (mill), mechanical, anodized or painted or otherwise coated, whether or not worked, having a wall thickness greater than 0.5 mm, with a maximum weight per metre of 22 kg and a profile or cross-section which fits within a circle having a diameter of 254 mm, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (the findings), as amended by its determination made on February 10, 2011, in Inquiry No. NQ-2008-003R.

On June 29, 2011, the Tribunal received a request from MAAX Bath Inc. (MAAX) for an interim review of the findings to exclude certain aluminum extrusions imported by MAAX for use in the assembly of shower enclosures or, in the alternative, to exclude all aluminum extrusions imported by MAAX from any Chinese producer for use in the assembly of shower enclosures (Interim Review No. RD-2011-001).

On July 13, 2011, the Tribunal informed all parties to Inquiry Nos. NQ-2008-003 and NQ-2008-003R that it had received a properly documented request for interim review from MAAX and gave those parties an opportunity to make representations to the Tribunal concerning the request.

On July 28, 2011, Almag Aluminum Inc., Apel Extrusions Limited, Can Art Aluminum Extrusion Inc., Extrudex Aluminum, Metra Aluminum Inc., Signature Aluminum Canada Inc. and Spectra Aluminum Products Ltd./Spectra Anodizing Inc. collectively filed submissions to the request for interim review filed by MAAX.

On August 11, 2011, MAAX filed reply submissions to the submissions of the above-mentioned domestic extruders.

On September 28, 2011, the Tribunal received a request from Aluminart Products Limited (Aluminart) for an interim review of the findings to exclude certain aluminum extrusions imported by Aluminart for use in the production of finished goods, including entry doors, storm doors and retractable screens, or, in the alternative, to exclude all aluminum extrusions imported by Aluminart for use in the production of finished goods (Interim Review No. RD-2011-003).

On October 26, 2011, the Tribunal informed all parties to Inquiry Nos. NQ-2008-003 and NQ-2008-003R that it had received a properly documented request for interim review from Aluminart and gave those parties an opportunity to make representations to the Tribunal concerning the request.

On November 8, 2011, Imperial Manufacturing Group Inc. (Imperial) filed representations supporting the request for interim review filed by Aluminart. On November 10, 2011, Almag Aluminum Inc., Apel Extrusions Limited, Can Art Aluminum Extrusion Inc., Dajcor Aluminum, Extrudex Aluminum, Metra Aluminum Inc., Signature Aluminum Canada Inc. and Spectra Aluminum Products Ltd./Spectra Anodizing Inc. (the domestic extruders) filed response submissions to the request. On November 17, 2011, the domestic extruders filed submissions regarding the representations made by Imperial.

On November 24, 2011, Aluminart filed reply submissions to the domestic extruders’ submissions.

Having regard to the fact that the requests deal with the same domestic industry and that they essentially raise the same issues, and having regard to its desire to optimize its access to the best evidence available and reduce unnecessary duplication, the Tribunal has decided, pursuant to Rule 6.1 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Rules (Rules), to combine both requests for an interim review and to proceed with a single interim review.

The Tribunal has also decided, pursuant to paragraph 25(a) of the Rules, to proceed with this interim review by way of an oral hearing to be held in the Tribunal’s Hearing Room No. 1, 18th Floor, Standard Life Centre, 333 Laurier Avenue W, in Ottawa, Ontario, commencing on April 10, 2012, at 9:30 a.m.

Each person or government wishing to participate in the interim review and at the hearing as a party must file a notice of participation with the Secretary on or before January 25, 2012. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the interim review and at the hearing must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Secretary on or before January 25, 2012.

The purpose of this interim review is to determine if the findings should be amended to exclude the products for which exclusions have been requested. Submissions already filed by parties have been placed on the record of the interim review. Any further submissions by interested parties respecting the products and the grounds upon which exclusions have been requested, or the description of those products, should be filed no later than noon on February 9, 2012. Parties who wish to file a response to those submissions must do so no later than noon on February 23, 2012.

All submissions must be filed with the Tribunal in 25 copies. The Tribunal will distribute the public submissions to all parties that have filed notices of participation and any confidential submissions to counsel who have filed a declaration and undertaking.

Submissions should be based, to the greatest extent possible, on public information. However, confidential information relevant to the issues before the Tribunal may be filed if necessary. Under section 46 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, a person who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must submit to the Tribunal, at the time the information is provided, a statement designating the information as confidential, together with an explanation as to why that information is designated as confidential. Furthermore, the person must submit a non-confidential summary of the information designated as confidential or a statement indicating why such a summary cannot be made. Confidential submissions will be made available to counsel who have filed the relevant declarations and undertakings.

Submissions should address all factors that are relevant to the interim review, including the following:

  • The criteria the Tribunal should use in determining the level of integration that is necessary for suppliers to be able to meet MAAX and Aluminart’s specific requirements;
  • The domestic industry’s ability to meet these requirements; and
  • The date on which the exclusions, should they be granted, should become effective.

Parties who intend to call witnesses are to file a brief summary of the testimony the witnesses will give at the hearing. Witness statements are due no later than noon on February 9, 2012. Any reply witness statements are due no later than noon on February 23, 2012. Witness statements must also be filed in 25 copies. The Tribunal will distribute the public witness statements to all parties that have filed notices of participation and any confidential witness statements to counsel who have filed a declaration and undertaking.

The Tribunal has notified the President of the Canada Border Services Agency, as well as other interested persons, of the commencement of the interim review. The Tribunal will make its decision on whether to amend the findings in due course.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding this notice should be addressed to the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, Standard Life Centre, 15th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue W, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), secretary@citt-tcce.gc.ca (email).

Parties and the public may file documents electronically with the Tribunal through its Secure E-filing Service at www.citt-tcce. gc.ca/apps/index_e.asp. The information is fully encrypted from the sender to the Tribunal.

However, parties must still file paper copies when instructed to do so. The electronic version and the hard-copy version must be identical. In case of discrepancies, the hard-copy version will be considered the original.

At the end of these proceedings, the Tribunal will issue a decision supported by a summary of the case, a summary of the arguments and an analysis of the case.

The Tribunal’s decision will be posted on its Web site and distributed to the parties and interested persons, as well as to organizations and persons who have registered to receive decisions of the Tribunal.

Written and oral communication with the Tribunal may be in English or in French.

CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE TRIBUNAL

COMMENCEMENT OF PRELIMINARY INJURY INQUIRY

Potassium silicate solids

Notice was received by the Secretary of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) on January 6, 2012, from the Director General of the Anti-dumping and Countervailing Directorate at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) stating that the President of the CBSA had initiated investigations into a complaint respecting the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of potassium silicate (also known as silicic acid, potassium salt; potassium water glass; potash water glass; potassium silicate glass), of all grades and ratios in a soluble solid including chunks, flakes or powder forms, originating in or exported from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (the subject goods).

Pursuant to subsection 34(2) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Tribunal has initiated a preliminary injury inquiry (Preliminary Injury Inquiry No. PI-2011-003) to determine whether the evidence discloses a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of the subject goods have caused injury or retardation or are threatening to cause injury, as these words are defined in SIMA.

The Tribunal’s preliminary injury inquiry will be conducted by way of written submissions. Each person or government wishing to participate in the preliminary injury inquiry must file a notice of participation with the Secretary on or before January 24, 2012. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the preliminary injury inquiry must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Secretary on or before January 24, 2012.

On January 30, 2012, the Tribunal will distribute the public information received from the CBSA to all parties that have filed notices of participation, and the confidential information to counsel who have filed a declaration and undertaking with the Secretary.

Submissions by parties opposed to the complaint must be filed not later than noon, on February 8, 2012. These submissions should include evidence, e.g. documents and sources that support the factual statements in the submissions, and argument concerning the questions of

  • whether there are goods produced in Canada, other than those identified in the CBSA’s statement of reasons for initiating the investigations, that are like goods to the subject goods;
  • whether the subject goods comprise more than one class of goods;
  • which domestic producers of like goods comprise the domestic industry; and
  • whether the information before the Tribunal discloses a reasonable indication that the alleged dumping and subsidizing of the subject goods have caused injury or retardation, or are threatening to cause injury.

The complainant may make submissions in response to the submissions of parties opposed to the complaint not later than noon, on February 15, 2012. At that time, parties in support of the complaint may also make submissions to the Tribunal.

Parties should note that the Tribunal does not consider exclusion requests during a preliminary injury inquiry, and, therefore, none should be filed at this stage. Should the matter proceed to a final inquiry, particulars regarding the schedule for filing exclusion requests will be included in the notice of commencement of inquiry.

Under section 46 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, a person who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must submit to the Tribunal, at the time the information is provided, a statement designating the information as confidential, together with an explanation as to why that information is designated as confidential. Furthermore, the person must submit a non-confidential summary of the information designated as confidential or a statement indicating why such a summary cannot be made. (See Procedural Guidelines for the Designation and Use of Confidential Information in Canadian International Trade Tribunal Proceedings available on the Tribunal’s Web site at www. citt-tcce.gc.ca.)

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal Rules govern these proceedings.

All submissions must be filed with the Tribunal in 25 copies. The Tribunal will distribute the public submissions to all parties that have filed notices of participation and any confidential submissions to counsel who have filed a declaration and undertaking.

The Secretary has sent the notice of commencement of preliminary injury inquiry and the preliminary injury inquiry schedule to the domestic producer, to importers and to exporters with a known interest in the preliminary injury inquiry. The notice and schedule of key preliminary injury inquiry events are available on the Tribunal’s Web site at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding this notice should be addressed to the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, Standard Life Centre, 15th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue W, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), secretary@citt-tcce.gc.ca (email).

Parties and the public may file documents electronically with the Tribunal through its Secure E-filing Service at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca/apps/index_e.asp. The information is fully encrypted from the sender to the Tribunal.

Parties must still file paper copies in the required number as instructed. The electronic version and the hard-copy version must be identical. In case of discrepancies, the hard-copy version will be considered the original.

At the end of these proceedings, the Tribunal will issue a decision supported by a summary of the case, a summary of the arguments and an analysis of the case. The decision will be posted on its Web site and distributed to the parties and interested persons, as well as to organizations and persons that have registered to receive decisions of the Tribunal.
