Anti-dumping

On September 20, 2010, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping in respect of greenhouse bell peppers originating in or exported from the Netherlands. The results of the investigation found that 99.4% of the goods exported to Canada during the period of investigation were dumped by a weighted average margin of 193%, expressed as a percentage of the export price. The finding is described at greater length in the Statement of Reasons published on October 5, 2010.
In March 2010, the CBSA originally initiated an anti-dumping investigation with low-priced Dutch sweet bell peppers being sold into the Canadian market, due to a complaint of injurious dumping, filed by the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG).
 On October 19, 2010 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal determined that the dumping of greenhouse bell peppers from the Netherlands had not caused injury but was threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Thus, anti-dumping duties were imposed and will be collected. 
On 4 June 2015, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal renewed theexisting anti-dumping order against imports of greenhouse bell peppersfrom the Netherlands. The renewed order thus exceeds the five-year 'sunset'standard that generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTOagreements (i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies andCountervailing Measures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).
