US extends off-road tyre tariffs

On 6 January, six U.S. International Trade Commission commissioners unanimously voted not to revoke the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain off-the-road tyres produced in China. The ITC says the decision was taken to retain the orders as their repeal “would be likely to lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.”

The ITC’s action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, which requires the US Department of Commerce to revoke an antidumping or countervailing duty order, or terminate a suspension agreement, after five years unless the it and ITC determine that revoking the order or terminating the suspension agreement would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping or subsidies and of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
