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:
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.
