Certain Upholstered domestic seating from China and Vietnam CBSA Notice of preliminary determinations

On May 5, 2021, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made preliminary determinations of dumping and subsidizing under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) of certain upholstered domestic seating originating in or exported from China and Vietnam.

The subject goods are typically classified under the following HS tariff classification numbers:

 HS classification  

MFN duty rate











Please note that the SIMA provisional duties are in addition to any standard MFN duties payable based on the HS Code.

Provisional duties will be payable on the subject goods that are Customs released on or after May 5, 2021 (includes goods which were in-transit to Canada prior to this date). Where amounts of dumping and/or subsidy are considered insignificant, the investigations will continue but provisional duties will not be payable.

The full CBSA Notice of preliminary determinations showing the estimated margins of dumping, estimated amounts of subsidy and total provisional duties owing by exporter can be found in the following Appendix.

The complete product definition of the subject goods can be found in Appendix 1 of the original CBSA notice link.

The Statement of Reasons is also available for additional information about the investigations.

The investigations are continuing and the CBSA must make final determinations or terminate the investigations by August 3, 2021.

Email for subjectivity opinions and duty assessment questions can be sent to:

Prior to submitting a subjectivity opinion request, please review the ‘detailed product information’. Each request must be supported with essential information including, but not limited to, pictures, mill certificates, measurements, origin of the goods, etc. in relation to the specific product in question.

Failure to provide sufficient information will result in a rejection of the request by the CBSA.

Schenker is here to assist you with any questions you may have and provide support with this process. We can analyze your imports to see if the goods you have imported may be part of the subject list.
