The Department of Commerce has issued correction to its preliminary anti-dumping duty determination for truck tires produced in China.
The DOC is correcting two “significant ministerial errors,” leading to greater tariffs for every manufacturing and importer.
Due to an error made in the calculation of estimated weighted-average for Prinx Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co. (PCT), the tiremaker’s anti-dumping rate grew from 20.87% to 30.36%.
Since the DOC used PCT’s initial tariff for all other “non-selected respondents” during its first announcement, rates from non-selected respondents is also increased to 30.36%.
The DOC is still working on final determinations in both its anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases in respect to truck tires from China. The DOC is scheduled to announce its final determination on or about Nov. 10, 2016 in the CVD case and Jan. 17, 2017 in the anti-dumping case.
