he Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) has announced that its findings made on December 8, 200, concerning the dumping of waterproof footwear and bottoms of plastic or rubber, including moulded clogs, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China will expire on December 6, 2010. Anti-dumping duty of 49% will no longer be payable.

The CITT determined that an expiry review is not warranted because there were no submissions requesting or opposing the initiation of an expiry review.

Under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), findings of injury or threat of injury and the associated special protection in the form of anti-dumping and countervailing duties expire 5 years from the date of the last order or finding, unless an expiry review has been initiated before that date. This order was continued for a further 5 years on December 7, 2005.
