Anti-dumping

On January 8, 2016 a coalition composed of the Titan Tire Corporation and the United Steel, Paper, and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union seeking the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on pneumatic off-the-road tires imported from India, China, and Sri Lanka. The first step in this investigation was the preliminary injury determination in the U.S. International Trade Commission. On February 19, 2016, the commission reached affirmative determinations with respect to India and Sri Lanka, but also found that imports of these products from China are negligible.
 
On June 14, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determinations in the countervailing duty investigations of imports from India and Sri Lanka.
On August 12, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its negative preliminary determination in the anti-dumping duty investigation of imports from India.
 
On January 4, 2017, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations in the countervailing duty investigations of imports from India and Sri Lanka and its negative final determination in the anti-dumping duty investigation of imports from India.
 
On February 3, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of these imports. As a result of the USITC's affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue an anti-dumping duty order on imports of these products from India and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from India and Sri Lanka.
