Brazil Issues Preliminary Affirmative Determination in AD Sunset Review of Footwear. SECEX has preliminarily determined that revoking the existing AD duty order on mainland Chinese footwear classified under NCM 6402 to 6405, except subheadings 6402.20.00, 6402.12.00, 6403.12.00 and 6403.20.00, would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. SECEX is therefore recommending the renewal of this order without any change to the current AD measures.

Canada Begins Review of AD Duty Order on Copper Pipe Fittings. The Canada Border Services Agency has initiated a re-investigation of the normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy of certain mainland Chinese copper pipe fittings classified under HTSCA 7412.10.0011, 7412.10.0019, 7412.10.0090, 7412.20.0011, 7412.20.0012, 7412.20.0019 and 7412.20.0090. Normal values established during this re-investigation will be effective for the subject goods released from the CBSA on or after the date of conclusion of the re-investigation. Normal values and amounts of subsidy currently in place will expire on that date. In addition, the normal values and amounts of subsidy determined as a result of the re-investigation will be applied to any entries of subject goods under appeal that have yet to be re-determined at the time of the conclusion of this re-investigation.
Exporters that wish to participate in this re-investigation are required to provide a complete and accurate submission by 26 October. An exporter will be considered co-operative if the requested information is submitted on time and the exporter permits verification of the data. Where an exporter of subject goods either does not provide sufficient information or permit verification of information submitted, AD duties will be assessed at a rate of 242 percent of the export price of the subject goods imported into Canada while CV duties will be assessed at a rate of 17.73 Renminbi per kilogramme.
