U.S. finds dumping of Chinese truck, bus tire imports

The U.S. Commerce Department found that dumping occurred by Prinx Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co., Ltd. at a preliminary dumping margin of 20.87 percent, while other Chinese producers and exporters of these tires received a dumping margin of 22.57 percent.

   The U.S. Commerce Department has determined that truck and bus tires from China are dumped on the U.S. market at less than fair market value.
   The department found that dumping has occurred by Prinx Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co., Ltd. at a preliminary dumping margin of 20.87 percent, while other Chinese producers and exporters of these tires received a dumping margin of 22.57 percent.
   Commerce said it will now instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to impose retroactively provisional measures on all entries of truck and bus tires effective 90 days prior to publication of the preliminary determination in the Federal Register.
   The petitioner for this investigation is the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union of Pennsylvania.
   Commerce estimated that in 2015, imports of truck and bus tires from China were valued at about $1.07 billion.
   The department said it’s scheduled to announce its final determination for this investigation by Jan. 17, 2017.
   If Commerce makes an affirmative final determination and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) also finds that these tires from China harm domestic industry, then Commerce will issue an antidumping order. If either Commerce’s or the ITC’s final determination is negative, no antidumping order will be issued.
   The ITC is scheduled to make its final injury determination in this investigation by March 2017.
