Brussels – The European Commission has started anti-dumping investigation proceedings concerning imports of new and retreaded truck & bus tires from China.
The probe follows a complaint lodged 30 June by the ‘coalition against unfair tires imports’ on behalf of producers representing over 45 % of total EU production of these tire types.
The EC said information provided by the complainant indicated “significant” dumping margins on Chinese-made tires and that imports had increased both in terms of volumes and market share.
The evidence “shows that the volume and the prices of the imported product under investigation have had, among other consequences, a negative impact on the quantities sold and the market share held by the [EU] industry,” said the EC.
