SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain silicon metal — Decision

On May 15, 2017, pursuant to subsection 39(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Canada Border Services Agency extended the time period for making preliminary determinations with respect to the investigations into the alleged injurious dumping of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil (Brazil), the Republic of Kazakhstan (Kazakhstan), Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, the Kingdom of Norway (Norway), the Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Thailand (Thailand), and the alleged injurious subsidizing of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand.

SIMA provides that, under normal circumstances, the preliminary stage of the investigations shall be completed within 90 days of the date of initiation. However, due to the complexity and novelty of the issues presented by the investigations, the period has been extended to 135 days, pursuant to subsection 39(1) of SIMA.

Consequently, the preliminary determinations will be made on or before July 5, 2017.
