Cobra Anchors Co. Ltd. v. President, Canada Border Services Agency, CITT Appeal NO. AP-2008-006

Reading Time 1 minute read


This was an appeal before the Canadian International Trade Tribunal from decisions of the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) with respect to the application of anti-dumping duties to certain anchor kits. The issue in this appeal is whether anchor kits imported into Canada by Cobra were ”fasteners” subject to the Tribunal findings in Certain Fasteners 2 (the subject goods) and therefore subject to the imposition of anti-dumping duties. The appeal was allowed. Cobra Anchors Co. Ltd. was advised by a team from Fasken Martineau led by Peter Kirby.
