Expiry Review No.: RR-2004-002
Certain women's boots

On August 18, 2004, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal), pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiated an expiry review of its order made on May 1, 2000, in Review No. RR-99-003, concerning women's leather and non-leather boots originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China. As a result, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation on August 19, 2004, to determine whether the expiry of the order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods.

The investigation has now been completed and today, pursuant to paragraph 76.03(7)(a) of SIMA, the President of the CBSA (the President) has determined that the expiry of the order is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the goods from the People's Republic of China.

A Statement of Reasons that contains additional details concerning the determination made by the President will be issued within fifteen days. The Statement of Reasons will be posted at the following web site:

The Tribunal will now conduct an inquiry to determine whether the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury or retardation to Canadian industry, and will make orders by April 29, 2005.
