Anti-subsidy

On February 20, 2017, the Canada Border Services Agency initiated countervailing duty investigations of certain silicon metal imported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Norway, 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 subsidizing with respect to imports from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Norway, and Thailand.

On October 3, 2017, the CBSA terminated the subsidy investigation in respect of Thailand, as the amounts of subsidy were insignificant. On the same day, the CBSA made final determinations of subsidizing in respect of Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, and Norway.

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.
