The European Commission is reportedly reimbursing some of the importers of leather shoes from China and Vietnam who were affected by the previous anti-dumping duties, following a decision by the European Court of Justice on Feb. 2, 2012 in favor of four Chinese shoe manufacturers who had filed a suit against the European Union. According to a report, companies importing shoes from Brosman Footwear, Seasonable Footwear, Lung Pao Footwear and Raisin Footwear have been able to get a reimbursement for all punitive tariff duties paid dating no more than three years back from the decision of the European Court of Justice. The European Court of Justice decided in November 2012 that companies importing shoes from Zhejiang Aokang Shoes are also able to get a reimbursement for all punitive tariff duties paid dating no more than three years back from Nov. 15, 2012. In order to get a uniform regulation with regards to the reimbursement of punitive tariff duties for all affected importers of leather shoes from China and Vietnam, the European Union currently plans to reinvestigate its regulations.
