Dry Wall Tariff Final Decision

On December 5, 2016 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping with respect to certain gypsum board originating in or exported from the United States of America (US), imported into Canada for use or consumption in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the Western Canadian industry and will make an order or a finding by January 4, 2017.

Provisional duties will continue to apply on imports of subject goods from US until the date of the CITT’s order or finding. They were increased from the initial provisional ruling in September.
