Anti-dumping

Based on a complaint filed by Québec Silicon Limited Partnership the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated investigations on April 22, 2013 respecting the alleged injurious dumping and subsidising 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. On July 22, 2013, CBSA made preliminary determinations of dumping and subsidizing, with the combined margins totalling 60%. On November 5, 2013, CBSA made final determinations respecting the dumping and subsidizing 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. See the statement of reasons at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/i-e/ad1400/ad1400-i13-fd-eng.html.
On November 19, 2013, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping and subsidizing of this product have not caused injury but were threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by CBSA.
