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
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).
