The Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced the launch of an inquiry regarding exclusion requests concerning certain heavy plate and stainless steel wire, which are subject to safeguard measures enacted in the Order Imposing a Surtax on the Importation of Certain Steel Goods.

Subject countries are all countries except the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel, Korea, Colombia, Honduras, Panama, Peru and all countries benefitting from the General Preferential Tariff (GPT).

In carrying out its mandate, the Tribunal is to determine if there is at least one domestic source of supply for such goods, or if there is a firm and commercially viable plan to produce such goods domestically. If the Tribunal determines that there is no domestic source of supply or firm and commercially viable plan to produce such goods domestically, the Tribunal will, in accordance with the direction provided in the Exclusions Inquiry Order, recommend the exclusion of the goods from the application of safeguard measures. The Tribunal must report to the Minister of Finance by July 15, 2019.
