The currently applied antidumping duties on footwear with leather uppers from China and Vietnam are set to expire at the end of March 2011. This information is officially confirmed by a notice of impending expiry published by the Commission in the EU Official Journal.

The expiry of these antidumping duties coincides with a Commission announcement to monitor for one year the evolution of the relevant imports of footwear (from China, Vietnam and Macao), "with a view to facilitate swift appropriate action should the situation so require".

Reportedly, the Commission had to concede the one-year monitoring in order to facilitate the European shoes manufacturers' decision to withdraw their request for further extension of the duties.
