On 22 December 2009, Argentina opened an anti-dumping investigation on imports of brand-new rubber tires from the People's Republic of China. Brazil has been selected as the surrogate country in order to determine the normal value of the product.
On 22 June 2011, the Government of Argentina imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on imports of new rubber tires used in travel cars (including racing and family cars), buses or trucks, and new rubber tires used in farming or forestation machines or vehicles (N.C.M. 4011.10.00, 4011.20.90, 4011.61.00, 4011.92.10 and 4011.92.90), originating in China. The final ad valorem anti-dumping duties range from 23% (tires for travel cars) to 10% (tires for farming or forestation machines or vehicles).
The measure will be in force for 2 years, and provided for a grace period of 6 months for tires of a certain a diameter.
On 22 June 2013, the above measure was terminated as the imposition period ended.
