CHICAGO The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is investigating whether dumped and subsidized silicon metal from China has injured or threatens to injure Canadas domestic producers.
The CITT, which will hold a public hearing on the Oct. 21 in Ottawa, Ontario, is scheduled to make a decision by Nov. 19, according to documents released July 23.
The CITTs inquiry comes as a result of investigations launched by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The tribunal has already said there is a reasonable indication that allegedly dumped and subsidized silicon metal from China has injured or threatens to harm Canadas silicon industry (amm.com, June 24).
The agencies started an anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigation into imports of Chinese silicon following a complaint by Becancour, Quebec-based Quebec Silicon LP, which is majority-owned by Globe Specialty Metals Inc., New York (amm.com, April 23).
