Anti-dumping

On August 30, 2012, 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 bicycle tires from China, India and Vietnam (Circular No. 42, 30.08.2012). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 4011.5000. The complaint was lodged by Industrial Levorin S.A. on May 14, 2012. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on September 3, 2012.

On February 18, 2014, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of bicycle tires from China, India and Vietnam (Resolution No. 5, 18.02.2014). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China ranges from USD 0.28 to USD 3.85 per kilogram, depending on the Chinese producer. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in India is USD 2.16 per kilogram, at the exception of the company Govind Rubber Limited whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 1.09 per kilogram. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Vietnam is USD 2.80 per kilogram, at the exception of the company Kenda Rubber (Vietnam) Co., Ltd. whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 0.59 per kilogram. Kevlar and/or polyurethane bicycle tires are not subject to this duty as they are high-performance products. 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 February 19, 2014, and is applicable for a period of five years.

On 19 February 2019, the Brazilian authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China, India and Viet Nam. This follows the application lodged on 19 October 2018 by Industrial Levorin S.A. and Neotec indústria e Comércio de Pneus Ltda. The duty will remain in force for the duration of the review.

On 19 February 2020, the Brazilian authorities extended the definitive duty on imports of the bicycle tires from China, India and Viet Nam following the conclusion of a sunset review. The rate of duty on imports from China is between USD 0.29 and 3.85 per kg depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from India is USD 1.09 or 1.30 per kg depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Viet Nam is 2.80%. The duty is in force for a period of five years.
