Anti-dumping

On June 10, 2015, the Canada Border Services Agency initiated investigations on the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of certain hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate imported from India and the Russian Federation. The investigations follow a complaint filed by Essar Steel Algoma Inc. of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
On August 10, 2015 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal determined that there is a reasonable indication that the dumping and subsidizing of these products have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.
On September 8, 2015, the Canada Border Services Agency made preliminary determinations of dumping and subsidizing in these investigations.
On January 6, 2016 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal found that the dumping and subsidizing of these products have not caused and are not threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry, so orders will not be imposed.
