Notice of Re-investigation

Waterproof Footwear and Bottoms of Rubber and Plastic
Canada Border Services Agency, Case description:

Update on 6 December 2010:

Inception date: 28 May 2009 | Removal date: 26 Sep 2009
Still in force


On 6 December 2010 Canada decided to terminate the anti-dumping duties concerning imports ofwaterproof footwear originating in China.
On May 28, 2009 Canada imposed a preliminary anti-dumping duty in the form of ad valorem duty of 49% for Viet Nam and 52.30% for China. The investigation was ongoing since February 27, 2009. On August 26, 2009 the Canada Border Services Agency issued a positive final determination of dumping. The Canadian International Trade Tribunal is continuing to investigate the injury to the domestic industry. The decision is supposed to be taken until September 25, 2009 and until then the provisional duty remains in place.
On September 25, 2009 the Canadian International Trade Tribunal found that dumping which occured had not been and is not threatening to be injurious to the domestic industry. The duty will therefore not be collected. 
On October 21, 2009 the Canada Border Services Agency initiated a reinvestigation of the normal values and export prices for products made in China.
