CITT investigating impact of Chinese silicon imports

Keywords: Tags  silicon, silicon metal, China, CITT, Canada, trade petition, imports, dumping subsidies


CHICAGO — The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is investigating whether dumped and subsidized silicon metal from China has injured or threatens to injure Canada’s 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 CITT’s 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 Canada’s 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).
