The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (“CITT”) has changed their website and have added a page listing all the target dates for expiry reviews (5 year sunset reviews) of existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders.
This is helpful to importers and foreign producers because Canada made changes to the Special Import Measures Act a few years ago. It used to be easy to determine when the CITT Decision in an expiry review case would be issued – it was five years minus one day from the date of the CITT order in the original inquiry or last expiry review.
Now, the CITT LE decision is issued five years minus one day from the date of the CITT order in the original inquiry or last expiry review. In an LE proceeding, the CITT asks whether an expiry review is warranted. Importers and foreign producers are will be aided by the CITT schedule of dates, which is as follows:
