US ITC retains antidumping duties on Chinese OTR tires

As reported in Rubber News, last week the US International Trade Commission decided to retain antidumping and countervailing duties against Chinese off-the-road tires that have been in place since 2008. Meanwhile, the same Chinese companies affected by the duties continue to press forward with a claim that the 2012 law allowing countervailing duties to be levied against Chinese goods is unconstitutional.

In 2008, the ITC, responding to a case brought by Titan Tire Corp. and the United Steelworkers union, ruled, first, that Chinese importers were selling OTR tires at below fair market value and, second, that these imports were causing material injury to the US. In response, the ITC instituted both antidumping and countervailing duties. The ITC is required to review the duties annually to determine if revoking them would cause the recurrence of material injury to US industries.
