Steel Exporters' Association is Planning to Take Legal Support From a Law Firm

Steel Exporters' Association (ÇİB hereafter) is a professional establishment that represents most of the steel exporters of Türkiye. ÇİB is assisting its members to increase national exports at the Steel industry and organizing, supervising export activities of members and taking necessary precautions on these activities. ÇİB negotiates with official authorities for solving problems at every level of export process, ensuring the decisions to be taken and realising organisations for that goal.

In May 10th 2023, The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has concluded a re-investigation of the normal values and export prices of certain concrete reinforcing bar (rebar) originating in or exported from the Republic of  Türkiye, in accordance with the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) (RN1 2022 RI). As part of the re-investigation, the CBSA formed the opinion that a particular market situation exists with respect to the rebar market in Türkiye, which does not permit a proper comparison with the sales of the goods to the importer in Canada.

The re-investigation was initiated on September 8, 2022, as part of the CBSA's ongoing enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal's (CITT) order issued October 14, 2020 in Expiry Review No. RR-2019-003.

At this point, ÇİB is planning to take legal support from a law firm for anti-dumping investigation and also on probable cases finalize this investigations process in a positive way and therefore; would like to receive “a proposal” about the defence of Türkiye.

The offer should set out a general strategy, information about which cases defended previously and the associated budget. The associated budget should be on “per hour& flat- fee” bases, and total expected budget. Please make sure that your proposal covers injury determination stage fees for ÇİB and hearings if necessary.

Because of our limited time, the deadline for the proposal is 26th May 2023.
