Certain Silicon Metal – Notice of Initiation of Investigations

: Anti-Dumping

CBSA Launches SIMA Investigation into Silicon Metal Originating in Brazil, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Norway, Russia and Thailand 2017-02-23

On February 20, 2017 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) launched an anti-dumping investigation into whether or not certain silicon metal originating in or exported from: 
  • The Federative Republic of Brazil (Brazil),
  • the Republic of Kazakhstan (Kazakhstan),
  • Lao People’s Democratic Republic,
  • Malaysia,
  • the Kingdom of Norway (Norway),
  • the Russian Federation and
  • the Kingdom of Thailand (Thailand) 
…is being sold at unfair prices in Canada.
It will also investigate whether or not subsidies are being applied to certain silicon metal originating in or exported from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Norway and Thailand.
The investigations are the result of a complaint filed by Québec Silicon Limited Partnership and QSIP Canada ULC (collectively, “Quebec Silicon”), from Bécancour, Québec. The complainant alleges that as a result of price undercutting from the subject countries, Quebec Silicon faces lost revenue and market share, resulting in reduced production and employment.
The subject goods are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification number: 
  • 2804.69.00.00 
This HS code is for convenience of reference only.
Additional information about the investigations will be available in a Statement of Reasons that will be available within 15 days on the CBSA’s website.
For more information, see the Notice of Initiation of Investigations.
