SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain silicon metal — Decisions

On October 21, 2013, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping and a final determination of subsidizing, pursuant to paragraph 41(1)(a) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), in respect of silicon metal containing at least 96.00% but less than 99.99% silicon by weight, and silicon metal containing between 89.00% and 96.00% silicon by weight that contains aluminum greater than 0.20% by weight, of all forms and sizes, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification number: 2804.69.00.00.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by November 19, 2013. Provisional duties will continue to apply until this date.

If the Tribunal finds that the dumping and/or subsidizing have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury, future imports of subject goods will be subject to anti-dumping duty equal to the margin of dumping and/or countervailing duty equal to the amount of subsidy on the 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 either Manshun Tong at 613-954-1666 or Matthew Lerette at 613-954-7398, or by fax at 613-948-4844.
