The Customs Practice has learnt that the European Court of Justice has recently annulled part of an Anti Dumping measure relating to footwear imported from certain Chinese manufacturers.

Importers of footwear from China and Vietnam may be interested to learn that where they have paid Anti Dumping Duties (ADD), it may be possible in some cases to recover the ADD paid.

What does this mean?

This allows importers to reclaim ADD they have paid, on relevant import consignments. The three year time limit on duty reclaims applies, unless claims have already been lodged which cover earlier periods. Any footwear importer who has paid ADD on supplies from the following manufacturers may be entitled to a duty reclaim.
  • Brosmann Footwear (HK) Ltd
  • Seasonal Footwear (Zhongshan) Ltd
  • Lung Pao Footwear (Guangzhou) Ltd
  • Risen Footwear (HK) Co Ltd
The Customs Practice can help

Any importers who would like assistance in compiling and submitting the necessary duty reclaims should contact us on 01635 521 624 or by e-mail at
