Anti-dumping

The United States International Trade Commission determined (http://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2012/er0417kk2.htm) on April 17, 2012 that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain steel wheels from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce had determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. This brings to an end an investigation that began with a pair of petitions filed on March 30, 2011, in which two U.S. producers (Accuride Corporation and Hayes Lemmerz International) seek the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties against imports from China of certain steel wheels classified under items 8708.70.05, 8708.70.25, and 8708.70.60. In 2010 the United States imported $19.0 million worth of these products from China, and $52.9 million from the world.
The U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative decision on May 13, 2011 in its preliminary injury investigation, so the case proceeded to the U.S. Department of Commerce's preliminary AD and CVD investigations.
On August 30, 2011, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the CVD investigation. Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese producers/exporters have received countervailable subsidies ranging from 26.24 to 46.59 percent ad valorem. All other Chinese producers/exporters received a preliminary net subsidy rate of 40.30 percent ad valorem. As a result of this preliminary determination, Commerce instructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a cash deposit or bond based on these preliminary rates.
