Anti-dumping

On May 14, 2008, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of tires of radial construction (20', 22' and 22.5' diameter) used for buses and trucks from China (Circular No. 27, 14.05.2008).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 4011.2090.
The complaint was lodged by the National Association of the Tyre Industry (Associação Nacional da Indústria de Pneumáticos - ANIP) on January 9, 2008. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on May 16, 2008.
 
On December 18, 2008, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of tires of radial construction (20', 22' and 22.5' diameter) used for buses and trucks from China (Resolução No. 79, 18.12.2008). The amount of the duty in USD per kilogram is 1.33 for all Chinese exporters.
This provisional duty entered into force on December 19, 2008 for a period of six months.
 
On June 9, 2009, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of tires of radial construction (20', 22' and 22.5' diameter) used for buses and trucks from China (Resolução No. 33, 09.06.2009). The amount of this definitive duty in USD per kilogram ranges from 1.12 to 2.59 depending on the Chinese exporter.
This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on June 18, 2009 for a period of five years.
 
On June 16, 2014, the Brazilian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolução No. 33 dated June 9, 2009 on imports of tires of radial construction (20', 22' and 22.5' diameter) used for buses and trucks from China (Circular No. 32, 16.06.2014).
This sunset review started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on June 17, 2014. It follows a request lodged on January 31, 2014 by the National Association of the Tyre Industry (Associação Nacional da Indústria de Pneumáticos - ANIP).
 
On April 10, 2015, the Brazilian authorities decided to extend for up to two months, from April 17, 2015, the investigation period to conclude the sunset review initiated on June 16, 2014 (Circular No. 24, 10.04.2015). Circular No. 24 was published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on April 13, 2015.
 
On April 29th, 2015, the Brazilian authorities decided upon the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of truck tires originating in China (Resolution No. 32, 29.04.2015). The amount of the duty still ranges from USD 1.12 to USD 2.59 per kilogram, depending on the company. This definitive duty entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on May 4th, 2015, and is applicable for a period of five years.
