The CBSA recently made preliminary determinations under subsection 38(1) of the Special Import Measures Act (Canada) (“SIMA”), that China and Vietnam had been dumping and subsidizing upholstered domestic seating (“UDS”) entering the Canadian market. We will review the specifics of this case and also provide links to all the present SIMA Actions presently in force.
This webinar will discuss the recent action taken by the CBSA as well as the CBSA’s administration of SIMA. In general, the SIMA investigative process takes about 260 days from the time the CBSA receives a complaint until the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) makes a finding. This webinar will detail the steps that will be taken during this investigative process to determine whether countervailing and/or antidumping duties should be applied.
Join the conversation regarding SIMA in order to optimize duty and tax minimization strategies and reduce customs valuation regulatory risk.
