On July 23, 2012, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of theSpecial Import Measures Act (SIMA), in respect of liquid dielectric transformers having a top power handling capacity equal to or exceeding 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea. Provisional duties are now payable on the subject goods that are released from customs on or after July 23, 2012. The investigation followed a complaint filed by ABB Inc. of Varennes, Québec, and CG Power Systems Canada Inc. of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
On March 6, 2014, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency made a new final determination of dumping in this case. The Statement of Reasons is posted as shown in the sources.
On July 26, 2017, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an expiry review investigation to determine whether the expiry of the order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods. December 22, 2017 the CBSA determined that the expiry of the order concerning the dumping of certain liquid dielectric transformers originating in or exported from Korea is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods to Canada. The Canadian International Trade Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the expiry of its order is likely to result in injury to the Canadian industry and has announced that it will issue its decision no later than May 31, 2018.
