Anti-dumping

On February 20, 2017, in response to a petition filed by Québec Silicon Limited Partnership and QSIP Canada ULC, the Canada Border Services Agency initiated antidumping investigations of certain silicon metal imported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway, Russia, and Thailand. The subject goods are normally classified under HS 2804.69.00.00.

On July 5, 2017, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping with respect to imports from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway, and Thailand. On the same date, CBSA terminated the dumping investigation in respect of imports from the Russian Federation.

On October 3, 2017, CBSA terminated the dumping investigation in respect of one exporter in Brazil, as the goods were not dumped, and from Norway, as the margin of dumping was insignificant. On the same day, the CBSA made final determinations of dumping in respect of certain silicon metal originating in or exported from other exporters in Brazil, as well as Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, and Thailand. 

The case terminated on November 2, 2017 when the Canadian International Trade Tribunal found that the dumping and/or subsidizing of these goods from Brazil, Kazakhstan, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Norway, and the Thailand have not caused injury and are not threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.
