USW receives Dept of Commerce deadline extension for Chinese antidumping decision
The USW has petitioned for and received an extension from the US Department of Commerce, pushing back to November the deadline for completion of the preliminary determination on its antidumping and countervailing duty complaint targeting China-made consumer tyres imported into the US, Tire Review reports.
The extension moves the due date for a preliminary determination by the Commerce Department from 17 September back to 21 November. The complaint is a response to the reported doubling of the US market share of China-made tyres between 2011 and 2013. China has contended that this not only contradicts international trade rules and national law, but any new antidumping or countervailing duties that emerge from current investigations will also fail to achieve their intended result.
