Canada's CBSA Concluded Reivestigation of Antidumping Duties on Waterproof Footwear

On February, 23, 2010, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) concluded a reinvestigation of normal values and export prices regarding certain waterproof footwear and bottoms made of plastic or rubber from the People's Republic of China.

For the purpose of this reinvestigation the subject goods are defined as:

“Waterproof footwear and bottoms of plastic or rubber, including moulded clogs, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China, excluding ski-boots, skating boots and all footwear subject to the order made in the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Review No. RR 97-001, excluding:

  • fully waterproof polyvinyl chloride injection-moulded footwear consisting of a one-piece construction where the entire surface, other than the sole portion, is coated with an adhesive and flocked with small particles of suede, suede dust or suede powder, whether or not trimmed with other materials and however fastened; and

  • women's waterproof footwear consisting of a polyvinyl chloride or polyurethane injection-moulded sole of non-boat-like construction and a polyurethane or nylon upper that is treated and affixed to the sole in a manner that makes the boot fully waterproof, whether or not trimmed with other materials and however fastened.”

Responses were received from six exporters. Specific normal values for future shipments have been determined for the following exporters:



C-Robert Enterprise Co. Ltd.

Chu-Shun Shoe Factory

Genfort Shoes Ltd.

Mudanjiang Baiyue Shoe-making Co. Ltd.

Quanzhou Huxia Shoes and Garment Co. Ltd.

Importers can verify the normal values by writing the CBSA.

The dumping margin applicable to all other  exporters (the "All Others Rate") is 49% of the export price.

These normal values/dumping margins will be applicable to subject goods released from CBSA on or after February 23, 2010.
