CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE TRIBUNAL

COMMENCEMENT OF INTERIM REVIEW

Bicycles

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) hereby gives notice that, pursuant to subsection 76.01(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), it has initiated an interim review (Interim Review Nos. RD-2013-001 and RD-2013-002) of its order made on December 7, 2012, in Expiry Review No. RR-2011-002 (the order) in respect of the dumping of bicycles, assembled or unassembled, with wheel diameters of 16 inches (40.64 cm) and greater, originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei and the People’s Republic of China, excluding bicycles with an FOB Chinese Taipei or the People’s Republic of China selling price exceeding CAN$225 and excluding bicycles with foldable frames and stems.

The Tribunal received requests for an interim review of the order from Outdoor Gear Canada (Interim Review No. RD-2013-001) and Trek Bicycle Corporation (Interim Review No. RD-2013-002), importers of bicycles. In accordance with rule 6.1 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Rules (the Rules), the Tribunal has combined the two proceedings. However, the Tribunal is conducting the interim review on its own initiative in light of evidence that domestic production of bicycles has ceased.

The purpose of this interim review is to determine if the order should be rescinded on the basis that there is no longer any domestic production of bicycles.

Each person or government wishing to participate in the interim review must file a notice of participation with the Secretary on or before noon on August 26, 2013. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the interim review must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Secretary on or before noon on August 26, 2013.

On August 27, 2013, the Tribunal will distribute the public information to all parties that have filed notices of participation and the confidential information to counsel who have filed a declaration and undertaking with the Secretary.

In accordance with paragraph 25(c) of the Rules, the Tribunal will conduct the interim review by way of written submissions. Interested parties are invited to file written submissions with the Tribunal no later than noon on September 5, 2013. In their submissions, parties should address the issue of whether there is still production of bicycles in Canada. Each person or government that files a submission in response to the notice of commencement of interim review will be given an opportunity to respond in writing to the representations of other persons or governments. Persons or governments wishing to respond to the submissions must do so no later than noon on September 12, 2013. All submissions must be filed with the Tribunal in 10 copies.

Submissions should be based exclusively on public information. However, relevant confidential information may be filed, if necessary, along with a comprehensive public summary or public edited version of the confidential information. Confidential submissions will be made available to counsel who have filed the relevant declarations and undertakings.

Parties are required to serve each other. Public submissions are to be served on counsel and those parties who are not represented by counsel. Confidential submissions are to be served only on counsel who have access to the confidential record and who have filed an undertaking with the Tribunal. This information will be included in the List of Participants which will be distributed to counsel and parties no later than noon on August 27, 2013. Submissions are to be served in accordance with the directions below:

  1. Submissions that contain information that is confidential to your company/government or your client may be served by electronic means provided you are willing to accept the associated risks.
  2. Submissions that contain third-party confidential information, meaning confidential information belonging to a company/ government that is not your own or that is not represented by you must be served by courier. Service must be effected so that said submissions arrive on the stated due dates as set out above.

Please note that proof of service must be filed with the Tribunal at the same time as the required copies are served on the Tribunal. Please see the Tribunal’s Guideline on the Designation, Protection, Use and Transmission of Confidential Information found at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca/publicat/ConfInfo_e.asp for additional information.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding this notice should be addressed to the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, 333 Laurier Avenue W, 15th Floor, 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 at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca/apps/index_e.asp. The information is fully encrypted from the sender to the Tribunal.

However, parties must still file paper copies when instructed to do so. 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 these proceedings, 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 decision will be posted on its Web site and distributed to the parties and interested persons, as well as to organizations and persons that have registered to receive decisions of the Tribunal.

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