On January 29, 2016 the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union filed a petition requesting the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of truck and bus tires from China. The first step in the investigation is the U.S. International Trade Commission's preliminary injury investigation. On March 11, 2016, the commission reached an affirmative determination in that phase of the investigation.
On June 28, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the countervailing duty investigation.
On August 29, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the anti-dumping duty investigation.
On January 23, 2017, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations in the anti-dumping duty and countervailing duty investigations.
On February 22, 2017, 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 truck and bus tires from China. As a result of the USITC's negative determination, Commerce will not issue anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from China.
