CHANGES TO CANADA'S ANTI-DUMPING AND COUNTERVAILING DUTY LAWS FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM
AbstractThe Special Import Measures Act (or SIMA) is the cornerstone of Canada's Antidumping and countervailing duty system. The Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act is also an important component of this system. On April 15, 2000, an Act to Amend the Special Import Measures Act and the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act and related amendments to the Special Import Measures Regulations and the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Rules, entered into force. This package of amendments, which implements recommendations contained in the December 1996 Parliamentary Report on the Special Import Measures Act, introduced significant changes to the SIMA system that are aimed at improving the efficiency, transparency and fairness of Canadian anti-dumping and countervailing duty proceedings. This paper explains and assesses these changes.
