Washington — The US Commerce Department has revised down anti-dumping duties levied on certain off-the-road tires imported from China.
The recalculation to 13.92 percent, from 12.91 percent followed a ‘remand’ from the US Court of International Trade in August 2010, ordering the agency to recalculate duties on OTR tires.
The duties in question were originally levied in September 2008, according to a 22 July Federal Register notice.
The new anti-dumping duties are effective retroactively to 23 March 2015, and apply to 31 Chinese OTR tire manufacturers and exporters that were listed as “separate rate” companies in the investigation.
Titan Tire Corp. and the United Steelworkers union filed with the International Trade Commission for anti-dumping and countervailing duty relief in 2007.
