Anti-dumping

On June 28, 2017 the Timken Company filed an antidumping petition against tapered roller bearings (provided for in subheadings 8482.20, 8482.91, and 8482.99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States) imported from Korea. The U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative preliminary injury determination on for August 11, 2017.

On January 30, 2018, the Department of Commerce preliminarily found that mandatory respondents Schaeffler Korea Corporation and Bearing Art Corporation were dumping at preliminary margins of 21.23 percent and 45.53 percent, respectively. Commerce established a preliminary dumping margin of 33.42 percent for all other producers and exporters of certain tapered roller bearings from Korea. As a result of the preliminary affirmative determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require cash deposits based on these preliminary rates.

On June 22, 2018 the Department of Commerce determined that imports of certain tapered roller bearings (TRBs) from the Republic of Korea for the period of investigation (POI) of April 1, 2016 through March 31, 2017, are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value.

The case ended on July 13, 2018 when the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of tapered roller bearings from Korea that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the USITC’s negative determination, no antidumping duty order will be issued.
