Anti-dumping

On November 5, 2009, the Peruvian authorities decided, after having conducted an expiry review, to continue the anti-dumping duty on imports of sandals and flip flops from China (Resolution No. 181-2009/CFD-INDECOPI, 05.11.2009).
The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 6402.1900, 6402.2000, 6402.9100, 6402.9990, 6403.9190, 6403.9990, 6405.1000 and 6405.9000.
The amount of the duty imposed on sandals with uppers of rubber or plastic is USD 0.62 per pair. The amount of the duty imposed on sandals with uppers of leather or any other material is USD 2.83 per pair. The amount of the duty imposed on flip flops with uppers of rubber or plastic is USD 1.64 per pair. The amount of the duty imposed on flip flops with uppers of leather or any other material is USD 4.55 per pair. Those definitive anti-dumping duties entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal El Peruano, i.e. on November 9, 2009.
This duty follows a review requested on February 18, 2008 by the National Association of Small Importers of Sandals and Flip Flops (Asociación Nacional de Pequeños Importadores de Sandalias y Chalas - ANPISCH). A review was then initiated by the Peruvian National Institute of Antitrust and Intellectual Property Protection (Indecopi) on September 8, 2008 (Resolution No. 124-2008/CFD-INDECOPI, 08.09.2008). The review started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal El Peruano, i.e. on September 18, 2008.
The original anti-dumping duty imposed on sandals and flip flops from China was decided on January 21, 2000 (Resolution No. 001-2000/CDS-INDECOPI, 21.01.2000) and entered into force on the day of the second publication of the resolution in the Official Journal El Peruano, i.e. on January 31, 2000.
On October 1, 2014, the Peruvian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on November 5, 2009 by Resolution No. 181-2009/CFD-INDECOPI (Resolution No. 114-2014/CFD-INDECOPI, 01.10.2014). This follows the request lodged on March 7, 2014 by the Leather Shoe Corporation (Corporación de Cuero Calzado y Afines - CCCA), the companies Calzado Chosica S.A.C., Ingeniería del Plástico S.A.C. and North Beach S.A.C., as well as two private people. The review started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal El Peruano, i.e. on October 12, 2014. The existing anti-dumping duty remains in force during the review.
On December 17, 2014, the Peruvian authorities decided to initiate an ex officio review to determine, according to the current circumstances, whether or not to maintain (and, if maintained, whether or not to modify) the anti-dumping duty imposed on November 5, 2009 by Resolution No. 181-2009/CFD-INDECOPI (Resolution No. 137-2014/CFD-INDECOPI, 17.12.2014). The review started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal El Peruano, i.e. on January 8, 2015.

On 12 April 2016, the Peruvian authorities extended the above duty on sandals and flip flops with uppers of rubber or plastic from China for a period of three years. The duty on flip flops with uppers of natural leather and other materials, and soles of different materials is terminated. (Resolution No. 047-2016 / CDB-INDECOPI, 12.04.2016)
 
On 8 July 2016, the Peruvian authorities amended the above anti-dumping duty on imports of sandals and flip flops with uppers of rubber or plastic from China. The rate of duty remains the same, however units with a FOB price higher than USD 3.00 for flip flops with uppers of rubber or plastic and USD 3.10 for sandals with uppers of rubber or plastic.
