On the same date, pursuant to paragraph 41(1)(b) of SIMA, the President of the CBSA terminated the subsidy investigation in respect of the above mentioned goods originating in or exported from the Republic of the Philippines, the Kingdom of Thailand and Ukraine.

As of January 1, 2012, the goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make a finding by April 2, 2015. Provisional duties relating to the dumping of the goods will continue to apply until this date on imports of subject goods from the nine named countries. However, the provisional duties relating to the subsidization of goods from the Republic of the Philippines, the Kingdom of Thailand and Ukraine will no longer apply, and the provisional duty paid or security posted will be returned.

If the Tribunal finds that the dumping and/or subsidizing have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury, anti-dumping duty and/or countervailing duty will be applied to future importation of the subject goods. In that event, the importer in Canada shall pay all such duties.

The Customs Act applies, with any modifications that the circumstances require, with respect to the accounting and payment of anti-dumping and countervailing duty.

Information

The Statement of Reasons regarding these decisions will be issued within 15 days following the decisions and will be available on the CBSA Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting Matthew Lerette at 613-954-7398.

SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain photovoltaic modules and laminates — Decisions

On March 5, 2015, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping and subsidizing in respect of certain photovoltaic modules and laminates originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System number:

8541.40.00.22

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian industry and will make an order or finding not later than 120 days after its receipt of the notice of the preliminary determination of dumping and subsidizing.

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on subject goods that are released from the CBSA during the period commencing March 5, 2015, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigations are terminated, the day on which the Tribunal makes an order or finding, or the day an undertaking is accepted.

The amount of provisional duty payable is not greater than the estimated margin of dumping and the estimated amount of subsidy. The Customs Act applies with respect to the accounting and payment of provisional duty. Consequently, failure to pay duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Customs Act.

Information

The Statement of Reasons regarding these decisions will be issued within 15 days following the decisions and will be available on the CBSA Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting either Mr. Walid Ben Tamarzizt at 613-954-7183 or Mr. Shawn Ryan at 613-954-7341.
