DETERMINATION

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal made a determination (File No. PR-2018-007) on August 27, 2018, with respect to a complaint filed by 10647802 Canada Limited o/a Outland-Carillion Services (Outland-Carillion), of Mississauga, Ontario, pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. 47 (4th Supp.), concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. W0103-187437/A) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC) on behalf of the Department of National Defence. The solicitation was for food catering services.

Outland-Carillion alleged that PWGSC erred in its evaluation of certain point-rated criteria in Outland-Carillion’s technical bid.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was not valid.

EXPIRY REVIEW OF FINDING

Unitized wall modules

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal hereby gives notice that it will, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiate an expiry review (Expiry Review No. RR-2018-002) of 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 (the subject goods).

In this expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will first determine whether the expiry of the finding in respect of the subject goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing of the subject goods. If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the finding in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping and/or subsidizing, the Tribunal will then conduct an expiry review to determine if the continued or resumed dumping and/or subsidizing is likely to result in injury. The CBSA will provide notice of its determinations within 150 days after receiving notice of the Tribunal’s decision to initiate an expiry review, that is, no later than January 24, 2019. The Tribunal will issue its order and its statement of reasons no later than July 3, 2019.

Each person or government wishing to participate in this expiry review must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal on or before February 8, 2019. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the expiry review must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before February 8, 2019.

The schedule for this expiry review is found at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca.

The Tribunal will hold a public hearing relating to this expiry review in the Tribunal’s Hearing Room No. 1, 18th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, commencing on April 23, 2019, at 9:30 a.m., to hear evidence and representations by interested parties. If there are no opposing parties, the Tribunal may explore the possibility of holding a file hearing, i.e. a hearing through written submissions only, instead of an oral hearing.

In accordance with 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, among other things, submit a non-confidential edited version or summary of the information designated as confidential, or a statement indicating why such a summary cannot be made.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding the Tribunal’s portion of this matter should be addressed to the Registrar, Canadian International Trade Tribunal Secretariat, 333 Laurier Avenue West, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), citt-tcce@tribunal.gc.ca (email).
