Canada delays steel plate trade case decision

NEW YORK — The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has delayed its preliminary anti-dumping duty ruling on imports of steel plate from seven nations.

The preliminary determination in the investigation of hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate from Brazil, Denmark, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan had been due Dec. 4, but has been postponed to Jan. 17 due to the complexity and novelty of issues presented by the investigation, the CBSA said.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal issued a preliminary ruling last month that there is reasonable indication that Canadian steelmakers were harmed by imports of the material from the seven nations (, Nov. 4).

The investigation was launched after Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario-based Essar Steel Algoma Inc. filed a trade complaint with the Canadian government (, Sept. 11).
