CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE TRIBUNAL

EXPIRY OF ORDERS

Refined sugar

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) hereby gives notice, pursuant to subsection 76.03(2) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), that its orders made on November 2, 2005, in Expiry Review No. RR-2004-007, continuing, with amendment, its orders made on November 3, 2000, in Review No. RR-99-006, continuing, with amendment, its findings made on November 6, 1995, in Inquiry No. NQ-95-002, concerning the dumping of refined sugar, refined from sugar cane or sugar beets, in granulated, liquid and powdered form, originating in or exported from the United States of America, Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and the subsidizing of refined sugar, refined from sugar cane or sugar beets, in granulated, liquid and powdered form, originating in or exported from the European Union, are scheduled to expire (Expiry No. LE-2009-003) on November 1, 2010. Under SIMA, findings of injury or threat of injury and the associated special protection in the form of anti-dumping or countervailing duties expire five years from the date of the last order or finding, unless an expiry review has been initiated before that date.

Any firm, organization, person or government wishing to participate as a party in these proceedings must file a notice of participation with the Secretary on or before January 13, 2010. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in these proceedings must also file a notice of representation with the Secretary on or before January 13, 2010. Qualified counsel who wish to have access to any confidential documents filed in these proceedings must file their notices of representation, declarations and undertakings, as well as the notices of participation signed by the parties that they represent, by the same date.

Parties requesting or opposing the initiation of an expiry review of the said orders shall file 20 copies of written public submissions containing relevant information, opinions and arguments with the Secretary of the Tribunal no later than January 18, 2010. Parties should endeavour to base their submissions on public information; however, confidential information relevant to the issues before the Tribunal may be filed, if necessary, along with a comprehensive public summary or edited version thereof.

Submissions shall include evidence, e.g. documents and sources that support the factual statements in the submissions, and argument concerning all relevant factors, including

  • the likelihood of continued or resumed dumping and subsidizing of the goods;
  • the likely volume and price ranges of dumped and subsidized imports if dumping and subsidizing were to continue or resume;
  • the domestic industry’s recent performance (data for the past three years and for the most recent interim period), including supporting data and statistics showing trends in production, sales, market share, domestic prices, costs and profits;
  • the likelihood of injury to the domestic industry if the orders were allowed to expire, having regard to the anticipated effects of a continuation or resumption of dumped and subsidized imports on the industry’s future performance;
  • any other developments affecting, or likely to affect, the performance of the domestic industry;
  • changes in circumstances, domestically or internationally, including changes in the supply of or demand for the goods, and changes in trends in, and sources of, imports into Canada; and
  • any other matter that is relevant.

Where there are opposing views, each party that filed a submission in response to the notice of expiry will be given an opportunity to respond in writing to the representations of other parties. In these circumstances, the Tribunal will distribute copies of the public submissions to each party that filed a submission with the Tribunal. Confidential submissions will be distributed by the Tribunal only to those counsel who have filed undertakings. Parties wishing to respond to the submissions must do so no later than February 2, 2010.

An expiry review at the request of any firm, organization, person or government will not be initiated unless the Tribunal decides that there is sufficient information to indicate that it is warranted.

The Tribunal will issue a decision on February 17, 2010, on whether an expiry review is warranted. If the Tribunal decides that a review is not warranted, the orders will expire on their scheduled expiry date. The Tribunal will issue its reasons no later than 15 days after its decision. If the Tribunal decides to initiate a review, it will issue a notice of expiry review.

The Tribunal’s Draft Guideline on Expiry Reviews can be found on its Web site at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca. In addition to providing more detailed information on the proceeding whereby the Tribunal determines if an expiry review is warranted, the draft guideline explains how an expiry review is conducted if the Tribunal determines that one is warranted. In an expiry review, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) first determines whether the expiry of the order or finding is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping or subsidizing of the goods. If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the order or finding in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping or subsidizing, the Tribunal will then conduct an inquiry to determine if the continued or resumed dumping or subsidizing is likely to result in injury or retardation.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding this notice should be addressed to the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, Standard Life Centre, 15th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue W, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), secretary@citt-tcce.gc.ca (email).

Documents may be filed electronically with the Tribunal through its Secure E-filing Service. The service utilizes the Government of Canada’s epass system, which allows the secure transmission of confidential business information. The information is fully encrypted from the sender to the Tribunal.

However, paper copies must still be filed in the required 20 copies. When a paper copy and an electronic version of the same document are filed with the Tribunal, both must be identical. In case of discrepancies, the paper copy will be considered the original.

Written and oral communication with the Tribunal may be in English or in French.

CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE TRIBUNAL

EXPIRY REVIEW OF ORDER

Certain whole potatoes

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) hereby gives notice that it will, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiate an expiry review (Expiry Review No. RR-2009-002) of its order made on September 12, 2005, in Expiry Review No. RR-2004-006, continuing, with amendment, its order made on September 13, 2000, in Review No. RR-99-005, continuing, without amendment, its order made on September 14, 1995, in Review No. RR-94-007, concerning whole potatoes, excluding seed potatoes, excluding imports during the period from May 1 to July 31, inclusive, of each calendar year, and excluding red potatoes, yellow potatoes and the exotic potato varieties, regardless of packaging, and white and russet potatoes imported in 50-lb. cartons in the following count sizes: 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80, imported from the United States of America, for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia.

Review No. RR-94-007 continued, with an amendment to exclude imports during the period from May 1 to July 31, inclusive, of each calendar year, its order made on September 14, 1990, in Review No. RR-89-010. The latter review continued without amendment: (1) the finding of the Anti-dumping Tribunal made on June 4, 1984, in Inquiry No. ADT-4-84, concerning whole potatoes with netted or russeted skin, excluding seed potatoes, in non-size A, also commonly known as strippers, originating in or exported from the state of Washington, United States of America, for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia; and (2) the finding of the Canadian Import Tribunal made on April 18, 1986, in Inquiry No. CIT-16-85, concerning whole potatoes, originating in or exported from the United States of America, for use or consumption in the province of British Columbia, excluding seed potatoes, and excluding whole potatoes with netted or russeted skin in non-size A, originating in or exported from the state of Washington.

Notice of Expiry No. LE-2009-002, issued on November 10, 2009, informed interested persons and governments of the impending expiry of the order. On the basis of available information, including representations requesting or opposing the initiation of an expiry review and responses to these representations received by the Tribunal in reply to the notice of expiry, the Tribunal is of the opinion that an expiry review of the order is warranted. The Tribunal has notified the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), as well as other interested persons and governments, of its decision.

The Tribunal has issued a Draft Guideline on Expiry Reviews that can be found on the Tribunal’s Web site at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca. In this expiry review, the CBSA must determine whether the expiry of the order in respect of certain whole potatoes is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods.

If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping, the CBSA will provide the Tribunal with the information that is required under the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Rules. The Tribunal will then conduct an inquiry to determine if the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury or retardation. The Tribunal will issue its order and its statement of reasons no later than September 10, 2010.

If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is unlikely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping, the Tribunal will not consider those goods in its subsequent determination of the likelihood of injury or retardation and will issue an order rescinding the order with respect to those goods.

The CBSA must provide notice of its determination within 120 days after receiving notice of the Tribunal’s decision to initiate an expiry review, that is, no later than April 29, 2010. The CBSA will also notify all persons or governments that were notified by the Tribunal of the commencement of an expiry review, as well as any others that participated in the CBSA’s investigation.

Letters have been sent to parties with a known interest in the expiry review providing them with the schedule respecting both the CBSA’s investigation and the Tribunal’s inquiry, should the CBSA determine that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is likely to result in a continuation or resumption of dumping.

The CBSA’s investigation

The CBSA will conduct its investigation pursuant to the provisions of SIMA and the administrative guidelines set forth in the Trade Programs Directorate’s publication titled Guidelines on the Conduct of Expiry Review Investigations under the Special Import Measures Act. Any information submitted to the CBSA by interested persons concerning this investigation is deemed to be public information unless clearly designated as confidential. Where the submission is confidential, a non-confidential edited version or summary of the submission must also be provided which will be disclosed to interested parties upon request.

With respect to the CBSA’s investigation, the schedule specifies, among other things, the date for the filing of replies to the expiry review questionnaires, the date on which the CBSA exhibits will be available to parties to the proceeding, the date on which the administrative record will be closed and the dates for the filing of submissions by parties in the proceeding. Further information regarding the CBSA’s investigation can be obtained by contacting the CBSA officer as mentioned below.

Tribunal’s inquiry

Should the CBSA determine that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is likely to result in a continuation or resumption of dumping, the Tribunal will conduct its inquiry, pursuant to the provisions of SIMA and its Draft Guideline on Expiry Reviews, to determine if there is a likelihood of injury or retardation. The schedule for the Tribunal’s inquiry specifies, among other things, the date for the filing of replies by the British Columbia Vegetable Marketing Commission (BCVMC) and domestic producers to Part E of the expiry review questionnaire, the date for the filing of updated information from the BCVMC, domestic producers, importers and exporters to the expiry review questionnaire replies, the date on which information on the record will be made available by the Tribunal to interested parties and counsel that have filed notices of participation and the dates for the filing of submissions by interested parties.

The Tribunal’s Guide to Making Requests for Product Exclusions, which can be found on the Tribunal’s Web site, describes the procedure for filing requests for specific product exclusions. The Guide includes a form for filing requests for product exclusions and a form for any party that opposes a request to respond to such requests. This does not preclude parties from making submissions in a different format if they so wish, provided that all of the information and supporting documentation requested in the forms are included. Requests to exclude goods from the order shall be filed by interested parties no later than noon, on June 24, 2010. Parties opposed or consenting or not opposed to the request for exclusion shall file written reply submissions no later than noon, on July 5, 2010. Should the request for a specific product exclusion be opposed, and if the interested party wishes to reply, it must do so no later than noon, on July 13, 2010.

Under section 46 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, a person who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must submit to the Tribunal, at the time the information is provided, a statement designating the information as confidential, together with an explanation as to why the information is designated as confidential. Furthermore, the person must submit a non-confidential edited version or non-confidential summary of the information designated as confidential or a statement indicating why such an edited version or summary cannot be made.

Public hearing

The Tribunal will hold a public hearing relating to this expiry review in Vancouver, British Columbia, commencing on July 27, 2010, at 9:30 a.m., to hear evidence and representations by interested parties. The location for the public hearing will be communicated at a later date.

Each interested person or government wishing to participate at the hearing as a party must file a notice of participation with the Secretary on or before May 10, 2010. Each counsel who intends to represent a party at the hearing must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Secretary on or before May 10, 2010.

To allow the Tribunal to determine whether simultaneous interpretation will be required for the hearing, each interested person or government filing a notice of participation and each counsel filing a notice of representation must advise the Secretary, at the same time that they file the notice, whether they and their witnesses will be using English or French or both languages at the hearing.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal Rules govern these proceedings.

In order to observe and understand production processes, the Tribunal, accompanied by its staff, may conduct plant visits.

Communication

Requests for information, written submissions and correspondence regarding the CBSA’s investigation should be addressed to Ms. Mary Donais, Canada Border Services Agency, Anti-dumping and Countervailing Program, 11th Floor, 100 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0L8, 613-952-9025 (telephone), 613-948-4844 (fax), Mary.Donais@cbsa-asfc.gc.ca (email).

A copy of the CBSA’s investigation schedule and the expiry review investigation guidelines are available on the CBSA’s Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi/er-rre/menu-eng.html.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding the Tribunal’s inquiry should be addressed to the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, Standard Life Centre, 15th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue W, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), secretary@citt-tcce.gc.ca (email).

Parties and the public may file documents electronically with the Tribunal through its Secure E-filing Service. The service utilizes the Government of Canada’s epass system, which allows the secure transmission of confidential business information. The information is fully encrypted from the sender to the Tribunal.

However, parties must still file paper copies in the required number as instructed. Where a party is required to file hard copies, the electronic version and the hard-copy version must be identical. In case of discrepancies, the hard-copy version will be considered the original.

At the end of the official process, the Tribunal will issue a decision supported by a summary of the case, a summary of the arguments and an analysis of the case.

The Tribunal’s decision will be posted on its Web site and distributed to the parties and interested persons, as well as to organizations and persons who have registered to receive decisions of the Tribunal.

Written and oral communication with the CBSA and the Tribunal may be in English or in French.

SPECIES AT RISK ACT

Description of critical habitat of the Greater Sage-Grouse in Grasslands National Park of Canada

The Greater Sage-Grouse (Prairie population) [Centrocercus urophasianus urophasianus] is a species listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act as endangered. Critical habitat for the Greater Sage-Grouse is identified within the Replacement of Section 2.6 of the Recovery Strategy for the Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus urophasianus) in Canada.

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to subsection 58(2) of the Species at Risk Act, critical habitat of the Greater Sage-Grouse in Grasslands National Park of Canada is described as active leks (locations where at least one displaying male Sage-Grouse has been observed since the spring of 2000) within the following five sites save and except existing infrastructure (e.g. roads). All coordinates refer to the North American Datum of 1983, Zone 13. Further details regarding Greater Sage-Grouse critical habitat (including maps) can be found at the Species at Risk Public Registry Web site. Site numbers are based on the unique Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) species identification number for the Greater Sage-Grouse (305), and lek critical habitat parcel number.

Within the identified geographical boundaries, the biophysical attributes of lek critical habitat include the following: open areas of sparse vegetation, widely spaced sagebrush, very limited noise disturbance, limited human presence, and limited presence of artificial perches and nest sites for avian predators of Sage-Grouse.
