Mar 27 2013 12:00AM



OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/13 -- The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today initiated an expiry review of its finding made on December 11, 2008, in Inquiry No. NQ-2008-002, concerning the dumping and subsidizing of thermoelectric containers from the People's Republic of China.

On July 25, 2013, the Canada Border Services Agency will determine if there is a likelihood of resumed or continued dumping and subsidizing. In the event of positive determinations, the Tribunal will determine, on December 9, 2013, whether the continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing are likely to result in injury or retardation.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.

Any interested person, association or government that wishes to participate in the Tribunal's expiry review may do so by filing a Notice of Participation.
