Federal Court of Appeal

Jackett, C.J., Pratte, J.

and Hyde, D.J.

January 24, 1974.

Summary:

This case arose out of a hearing before the Tariff Board to determine the "value for duty" of imported goods under the Customs Act and the "normal value" of imported goods under the Anti-Dumping Act. During the hearing before the Tariff Board, the Board refused to review the regulations made by the Minister to be used to compute "value for duty" and "normal value". The taxpayer appealed from such ruling to the Federal Court of Appeal pursuant to s. 28(1) of the Federal Court Act, which gives the Federal Court of Appeal authority to review and set aside a decision or order of boards and tribunals. The Federal Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal.

The Federal Court of Appeal stated that such a ruling by the Tariff Board was not a "decision" but was only a "preliminary declaration" which was not reviewable by the Federal Court of Appeal pursuant to s. 28(1) of the Federal Court Act - see paragraphs 14 to 16.

The Federal Court of Appeal also stated that a ruling by the Tariff Board excluding certain evidence was a "preliminary declaration" by the Board and was not a "decision" within the meaning of s. 28(1) of the Federal Court Act - see paragraph 16.
