Marginal note:Orders by Governor in Council
72. (1) Subject to subsection (2), if at any time it appears to the satisfaction of the Governor in Council, as a result of an inquiry made by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal under subsection 19.011(2) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act or further to a complaint filed under subsection 23(1.04) of that Act, that goods that are entitled to the Canada–Israel Agreement Tariff are, as a result of that entitlement, being imported into Canada in such increased quantities and under such conditions as to alone constitute a principal cause of serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods, the Governor in Council may, on the recommendation of the Minister, by order,
(a) suspend, during the period that the order is in effect, any reduction of the rate of customs duty with respect to those goods that would otherwise be made after that time under the Canada–Israel Agreement Tariff; and

(i) the Most-Favoured-Nation Tariff rate of customs duty that is in effect in respect of those goods at the time the order is made, and
