Anti-dumping

On June 7, 2013, 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 tires used on buses and trucks, of radial construction (rims 20", 22" and 22.5"), designed to be used with or without tube, from Chinese Taipei, Japan, Korea, Russia, South Africa and Thailand (Circular No. 28, 07.06.2013). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 4011.2090. The complaint was lodged by the National Association of the Tyre Industry (Associação Nacional da Indústria de Pneumáticos - ANIP) on July 31, 2012. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on June 10, 2013.

On May 28, 2014, the Brazilian authorities decided to extend for up to six months, from June 10, 2014, the investigation period to determine the existence of dumping in exports of truck tires from Chinese Taipei, Japan, Korea, Russia, South Africa and Thailand (Circular No. 25, 28.05.2014). Circular No. 25 was published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on May 29, 2014.

On June 18, 2014, the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade made a preliminary determination of dumping against imports of truck tires from Chinese Taipei, Japan, Korea, Russia, South Africa and Thailand (Circular No. 35, 18.06.2014). However, no provisional duty was imposed. Circular No. 35 was published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on June 20, 2014.

On November 21, 2014, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of truck tires originating in Chinese Taipei, Japan, South Korea, Russia, South Africa and Thailand (Resolution No. 107, 21.11.2014). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Chinese Taipei is USD 723.62 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Japan is USD 4,058.74 per metric ton, at the exception of the company Sumitomo Rubber Industries (price commitment). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in South Korea is USD 2,031.31 per metric ton, at the exception of the companies Kumho Tires Co. Inc. and Hankook Tire Co., Ltd. whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 317.11 per metric ton and USD 1,794.73 per metric ton respectively. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Russia is USD 2,933.96 per metric ton, at the exception of the company OAO Cordiant whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 1,097.13 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in South Africa is USD 1,751.93 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Thailand is USD 550.52 per metric ton. 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 November 24, 2014, and is applicable for a period of five years.

On 22 November 2019, the Brazilian authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Chinese Taipei, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia, South Africa and Thailand. This follows the application lodged on 24 July 2019 by Associação Nacional da Indústria de Pneumáticos - ANIP.
