Anti-dumping

On June 8, 2016 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an anti-dumping investigation concerning certain gypsum board imported from the United States of America. The investigation follows a complaint filed by CertainTeed Gypsum Canada Inc. (Mississauga, Ontario). On August 5, 2016 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal determined that there is evidence that discloses a reasonable indication that the dumping of the above-mentioned goods has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. On September 6, 2016, CBSA made a preliminary determination of dumping. Provisional duties will now be payable on the subject goods that are released from customs on or after September 6, 2016.

On December 5, 2016, the CBSA made a final determination of dumping. On January 4, 2017 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal found that the dumping of gypsum board originating in or exported from the United States of America has caused injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency.

On 14 December 2021, the Canadian authorities announced the initiation of a sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from the United States.
