Certain nitisinone capsules Decision

On December 20, 2018, pursuant to subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a preliminary determination of dumping of certain nitisinone capsules from Sweden.

The subject goods are usually imported under the following tariff classification numbers:

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) will conduct a full inquiry into the question of injury to the Canadian industry and will make an order or finding not later than 120 days after its receipt of the notice of the preliminary determination of dumping.

Pursuant to section 8 of SIMA, provisional duty is payable on subject goods that are released from the CBSA during the period commencing December 20, 2018, and ending on the earlier of the day the investigation is terminated, the day on which the CITT makes an order or finding, or the day an undertaking is accepted.

The amount of provisional duty payable is not greater than the estimated margin of dumping. The Customs Act applies with respect to the accounting and payment of provisional duty. Therefore, failure to pay duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Customs Act.


The Statement of Reasons regarding this decision will be issued within 15 days following the decision and will be available on the CBSA website or by contacting the SIMA Registry and Disclosure Unit by telephone at 613-948-4605 or by email at

Pursuant to section 42 of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), the Tribunal has initiated an inquiry (Inquiry No. NQ-2018-005) to determine whether the dumping of the above-mentioned goods has caused injury or retardation or is threatening to cause injury, and to determine such other matters as the Tribunal is required to determine under that section.

Each person or government wishing to participate in the inquiry and at the hearing as a party must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal on or before January 4, 2019. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the inquiry and at the hearing must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before January 4, 2019.

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal made a determination (File No. PR-2018-031) on December 19, 2018, with respect to a complaint filed by V Zero Corporation (V Zero), of Woodstock, Ontario, pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. 47 (4th Supp.), concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. M7594-186822/A) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC) on behalf of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The solicitation was for the provision of rifle plates.

V Zero alleged that PWGSC erred in determining that its proposal was non-compliant with the requirements of the solicitation.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was valid.
