Taroff Rates on Off-The-Road Tires Imported from China to Raise Again

d

The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) is once again revising the tariff rates charged to importers of off-the-road tires from China.

The change comes as a result of the DOC’s review of OTR tires brought into the U.S. in 2014. The DOC had published revised rates in April. Afterwards, Titan Tire Corp., the United Steelworkers union and Xuzhou Xugong Tyres Co. Ltd. all filed allegations of “ministerial” or mathematical errors in the calculations.

The DOC agrees it did make an error regarding “the selection of a synthetic rubber benchmark” in its calculations.

As a result, the subsidy rates are changing for Guizhou Tyre Co. Ltd., Xuzhou Xugong and the 44 companies that weren’t selected as mandatory respondents in the investigation. After substantial increases in April, the rates are all increasing again.

Manufacturer/exporter Subsidy rate
Guizhou 37.57
Xuzhou 57.13
Other non-selected companies 47.35

In addition to these changes, some tire companies — including Guizhou and Xuzhou, as well as Tianjin United Tire & Rubber International Co. Ltd. — also are pursuing an appeal in the U.S. Court of International Trade. With that appeal pending, a judge has ordered that the tire makers in the appeals case not be subject to these higher rates “pending resolution of the associated litigation.”

The notice is set to be published in the Federal Register on Aug. 25, 2017.

Tariffs on Imported Steel Affect Tire Industry

doclogo

The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) is investigating the national security implications of steel imports, and the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) has testified consumers, as well as the U.S. military, depend on tires and the availability of certain imported steel is critical.

The USTMA, the new name for the Rubber Manufacturers Association, has asked that specific types of tire cord-quality steel wire rod, tire cord and bead wire be excluded from the DOC tariff investigation since domestic suppliers cannot meet volume and quality needs for this vital tire component.

“Tire manufacturing is vital to the U.S. economy,” testified Tracey Norberg, USTMA senior vice president and general counsel. “Tires manufactured by USTMA members safely transport millions of Americans and millions of tons of goods each day throughout the United States. In addition, the U.S. military depends on the tire manufacturing industry to supply tires to protect our national security.”

Virtually all of the steel wire rod used to manufacture high tensile tire cord and bead wire that is consumed in U.S. tire manufacturing plants is sourced from foreign suppliers due to the stringent performance and quality requirements of tire manufacturing, as well as quality and supply limitations of domestic steel wire rod suppliers.

“A disruption in tire manufacturing in the U.S. would harm the U.S. economy, since consistent tire supply is critical to the nation’s shipping and commerce needs, and (it would) threaten national security, since the U.S. military relies on the tire industry to provide high performing and durable tires to aid in our national defense,” Norberg said.

President Donald Trump in April ordered the DOC to investigate whether steel imports were a threat to U.S. national security. While anti-dumping and countervailing investigations are common, The Washington Post reported that investigations studying the connection to national security are quite rare.

Norberg said the production process used by domestic steel mills is unable to manufacture tire cord-quality steel wire rod necessary to make tires for military and civilian applications by domestic tire producers. Tire manufacturers use this steel wire in a tire’s steel belts and in the bead.

“Tariffs or quotas on these products would significantly disrupt the production of tires in the United States, due to quality and supply limitations in domestically producing tire cord-quality steel wire rod to replace imported products,” Norberg said.

Some Tariffs Increase, While Others Decrease

China_flag_map

 

The latest annual reviews of tariffs on off-the-road tires from China have resulted in changes to how much tire makers and importers will pay on the tires they import into the U.S.

In the anti-dumping investigation for the period September 2014-August 2015, the Department of Commerce (DOC) says the rate for Xuzhou Xugong Tyres Co. Ltd., (also known as Armour Rubber Co. Ltd. or Xuzhou Hanbang Tyre Co. Ltd.) should be 33.08% — that’s nearly half of what the company was assessed after the previous year’s review; then it was 65.33%.

And because Xugong was one of the primary companies the DOC investigated (the agency calls them a ‘mandatory respondent’), the drop in its rate lowers the rate of these nine other companies to the same 33.08%:

Shiyan Desizheng Industry & Trade Co. Ltd.

Qingdao Jinhaoyang International Co. Ltd.

Sailun Jinyu Group Co. Ltd.

Weifang Jintongda Tyre Co. Ltd.

Zhongce Rubber Group Co. Ltd.

Weihai Zhongwei Rubber Co. Ltd.

Qingdao Qihang Tyre Co.

Qingdao Free Trade Zone Full-World International Trading Co. Ltd., and

Trelleborg Wheel Systems (Xingtai) China Co. Ltd.

One thing that hasn’t changed is that the bulk of companies who were assessed the country-wide rate will continue to pay 105.31%.

Subsidy rates go up

As for the countervailing investigation — which covers subsidies from a foreign government that a company receives — the latest review is prompting substantial rate increases.

For Guizhou Tyre Co. Ltd., the rate is increasing from 2.52% to 34.46%. For companies not selected for an individual review the new rate of 40.24% is almost eight-times higher than the previous 5.65%.

The good news for these companies is that their rates could have been even higher. When the DOC published preliminary countervailing rates in October 2016, Guizhou’s rate was to be 38.19%, and the “others” category rate was to be 54.20%. (It’s not uncommon for the DOC to make revisions after companies provide additional data for consideration.)

Why a review?

Companies who are assessed tariffs have the right to request a review of the data once a year. The government publishes a notice in the Federal Register each month of the investigations that had been finalized in that same month in previous years, and companies have a certain amount of time to request an administrative review. Sometimes no one makes a request. In the case of the anti-dumping investigation on OTR tires from China, the 2016 review was the seventh review.

Tariffs on OTR tires from China were imposed beginning in 2008, and they were renewed in 2013. Tariffs are imposed on five-year cycles, and the next mandatory review of these tariffs is in 2018.

Titan responds

After the higher subsidy rates were published in the Federal Register this week, Titan International Inc. released a statement which included messages from Chairman Morry Taylor and CEO and President Paul Reitz.

Taylor says, “We thank the government agencies involved for their diligence in pursuing these reviews. These results confirm that imports of OTR tires from China continue to be subsidized and dumped and harm U.S. producers of OTR tires in the U.S. marketplace. I believe Titan will see a positive impact in our aftermarket business as a result of these determinations.On behalf of our shareholders and workers, we are pleased that the U.S. government’s investigations have confirmed what we are seeing in the U.S. marketplace.”

Reitz says, “These results confirm our belief that the levels of government subsidization had significantly increased and that the amount of dumping has continued. The continued monitoring by the DOC of these orders and the imposition of accurate amounts of countervailing and antidumping duties is an important step in restoring conditions of fair trade. We will continue to work with the DOC to insure that any and all subsidization and dumping by Chinese producers is met by appropriate duty levels. We have been fighting and will continue to fight against the unfair trade practices of any U.S. trading partners.”

Double Coin Fights to Lower Tariff Imposed

g

 

The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) has admitted errors in its tariff calculations on two truck and bus tire manufacturers in China, and as a result has lowered the rates Double Coin Holdings Ltd. and Guizhou Tyre Co. Ltd. — and all companies — will pay.

In all, the DOC made seven errors.

Both companies submitted complaints alleging the errors after the DOC announced its final tariff rates on Jan. 23.

After fixing these errors, the DOC says Double Coin’s tariff rate is decreasing from 38.61% to 20.98%. The rate for Guizhou is dropping slightly, from 65.46% to 63.34%.

Making adjustments to those specific companies also affects the rate charged to all other companies — from 52.04% to 42.16%.

The details

Here’s what happened with the Double Coin calculation. The first mistake was a basic subtraction error. The second error was in applying a currency exchange rate to an amount that had already been converted.

The Guizhou calculations are a bit more complex. One mistake stemmed from how the intercompany sales from one Guizhou subsidy were accounted for. Another error came in linking to the wrong table of data. The wrong benchmark for electricity rates at two facilities was used in calculations. The DOC also admitted it used a 2004 sales figure in a calculation compared to benefits received in 2015. And in the fifth and final error connected to Guizhou calculations, the DOC says it should have entered the actual price paid for land in one table, but instead entered benchmark prices.

No Tariffs Will Be Assigned on Medium Truck and Bus Tires from China

ctNo tariffs will be assessed on truck and bus tires manufactured in China and imported into the U.S. The International Trade Commission (ITC) has upended the tariff investigation by voting today against imposing tariffs on these products.
The ITC doesn’t immediately publish an explanation of its vote, but instead issues a single sentence that it has “made a negative determination.”

The result is that the tariff investigation on truck and bus tires from China is over, and no tariffs will be assessed.

The vote

After it’s initial one-sentence announcement this morning, the ITC has provided one more detail on its decision. The five-member commission voted 2-3.

Commissioners Rhonda Schmidtlein and Irving Williamson voted in the affirmative (which was a vote to impose the tariffs,) and commissioners David Johanson, Meredith Broadbent and F. Scott Kieff voted in the negative.

A sixth member of the commission, Dean Pinkert, did not participate in the case. Pinkert also recused himself from the separate investigation studying tariffs on off-the-road tires earlier this year.

The report

Weeks after an ITC vote, the commission provides insight into its decision. That report will be available by March 15, 2017, here.

Chinese Truck Tire Tariffs Even Higher Than Before

China_flag_mapThe U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) has more than doubled some of the tariff rates it says are necessary to offset the subsidies and dumping of Chinese-made truck and bus tires imported into the U.S.
The DOC conducts its tariff investigations in two stages. Evidence during the preliminary stage resulted in preliminary subsidy rates ranging from 17.06% to 23.38%; but in the final investigation those rates jumped to 38.61% to 65.46%.

And that’s just half of the equation.

The preliminary anti-dumping tariff, after a re-calculation, was set at 30.36% for all tire manufacturers. In the final stage that rate has actually decreased, and is either 9% or 22.57%, depending on the manufacturer.

The details

Here’s how it breaks down:

The final subsidy rates:

Tire company Countervailing tariff
Double Coin Holdings Ltd. 38.61%
Guizhou Tyre Co. Ltd. 65.46%
All Others 52.04%
The final dumping margins:

Tire company Anti-dumping tariff
Prinx Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co. Ltd. 9%
Non-selected separate rate respondents* 9%
China-wide rate 22.57%
*Non-selected separate rate respondents — Following the preliminary decision, we listed the companies the DOC lumped in this category here.

What happens next

The DOC is one half of the tariff-decision making team. The International Trade Commission (ITC) conducts its own investigation of every tariff petition — this one was filed by the United Steelworkers — and the ITC is scheduled to make its final determinations March 6, 2017.

If the ITC agrees with the DOC that the domestic truck and bus tire market is being injured by like products made in China, the DOC will formally instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect tariffs on the imported products. If the ITC doesn’t see it the same way and says the U.S. production market isn’t being harmed by those imports, the investigations are terminated and no tariffs are collected.

Another wrinkle

Typically, the DOC sets these tariff rates, publishes the rates in the Federal Register, and once published, the customs office begins collecting the tariffs. But as sometimes happens when these cases, by the time the final rates are set, the clock has expired on the provisional preliminary decision. That’s what happened with the anti-dumping rates in this case. As a result, for the time being, no dumping tariff will be collected until the ITC makes its final determination in March, and that determination says truck and bus tires from China are being dumped in the U.S.

The higher subsidy rates will be collected like usual, however — as soon as they’re published in the Federal Register.

Who Will Pay a Lower Rate in the Truck Tire Tariffs?

M-Tariffs-containership-15

 

When the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) said its preliminary investigation found evidence of truck and bus tire makers in China dumping tires in the U.S., the agency didn’t specify which tire manufacturers would pay which tariff rate. We’ve now got that information.

On Aug. 29, 2016, the DOC revealed companies would fall into one of two anti-dumping tariff rates: either 20.87% or 22.57%.

The 20.87% rate is levied against imports from companies the DOC refers to as “non-selected respondents eligible for a separate rate.”

The 22.57% rate is for “all other manufacturers in China.” This rate is higher because in all but one instance (Double Coin), the companies didn’t respond to the government’s request for information. (Double Coin is being penalized with the higher rate because it is 72% owned by a government-owned company. Its parent company, Shanghai Huayi Company is fully owned by Shanghai State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, and the DOC says it determined there is “de facto control” over the tire manufacturer.)

Here’s the lengthy list of manufacturers who will pay 20.87% anti-dumping tariff. Keep in mind this tariff is then combined with the previously-approved countervailing duty.

The companies are listed by exporter. Tire producers are listed in parenthesis behind the appropriate exporter’s name. In some cases, a producer is listed multiple times because its products are exported by multiple companies. (Searching for a particular tire company?

DOC Changes To Higher Tariffs on Truck Tires Imported From China

The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) has admitted to a miscalculation in its preliminary anti-dumping tariff rate for truck and bus tires imported from China. As a result, the rates for every manufacturer and importer are increasing to 30.36%, which is nearly 10 points higher than the initial calculation.
d
The DOC has recalculated its preliminary anti-dumping tariff rate to account for two errors that affected the initial figure.

The change stems from two fine details that were used to establish the rate for Prinx Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co. Ltd. One is related to using a per-kilogram basis instead of a per-piece basis in the calculation; another refers to not using a weight average when reconstructing control numbers.
The result is what the DOC calls a significant ministerial error, which it defines as a mathematical or clerical error that “would result in a change of at least five absolute percentage points, but not less than 25% of the weighted average dumping margin.”

As it relates to this anti-dumping tariff, the recalculated rate for Prinx Chengshan is 30.36%, up from 20.87%.

Keep in mind, the anti-dumping rate is only half of the tariff equation.

There are two ongoing investigations related to truck and bus tires from China, and the two rates are combined and levied on all shipments. These anti-dumping tariffs are added to the countervailing tariffs, which are imposed to account for subsidies the companies are receiving from the Chinese government. The countervailing tariffs vary slightly by producer: 17.06% for Double Coin Holdings Ltd.; 23.38% for Guizhou Tyre Co Ltd.; and 20.22% for all other importers.

But the net effect is that most truck and bus tires from China will be assessed a 50.58% tariff.
(Double Coin’s combined rate is 47.42% and Guizhou Tyre’s combined rate is 53.74%.)

These figures represent the preliminary phase of both tariff investigations. The DOC continues to investigate and is scheduled to make its final ruling Nov. 9, and the International Trade Commission is scheduled to hold a final hearing on the investigation Jan. 24, 2017.

DOC Finds No Evidence of Dumping in Preliminary Investigation of India Made OTR Tires

doclogo

There is no evidence that off-the-road tire makers in India have sold products in the U.S. at less-than-fair-market prices, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) says. As a result, OTR tire manufacturers in that country will not be charged anti-dumping tariffs.

That doesn’t mean the DOC’s investigation comes to an end, however. This finding, issued on Aug. 12, 2016, ends the preliminary stage, and the DOC will continue to collect evidence in the coming months before it issues its final determination on Jan. 4, 2017. If the DOC’s review of data reveals OTR tires from India have been dumped in the U.S., it could still impose tariffs.

The DOC has based its review on data provided by two tire manufacturers in India: ATC Tires Private Ltd. (a part of Alliance Tire Group) and Balkrishna Industries Ltd. Neither company has sold tires at less than fair value, the DOC said.

This negative finding also doesn’t cancel an earlier preliminary determination by the DOC that OTR tire makers in India, as well as Sri Lanka, are benefitting from subsidies from those foreign governments and should be subject to countervailing tariffs.

United Steelworkers Union Happy With DOC 40% Tariff on China Built Tires

health-safety-environment

The United Steelworkers (USW) union is praising the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (DOC) preliminary anti-dumping (AD) determination of tariffs of at least 20% on truck and bus tire imports from China.

The DOC issued its preliminary determination on Aug. 29. Importers will need to start posting cash deposits or bonds to offset dumping by Chinese tire producers at margins ranging from 20.87% to 22.57%. Preliminary countervailing duty margins were announced June 28 with margins of 17.06 to 23.38%.

When combined, the AD and CVD margins are nearly 40% on the truck and bus tire imports from China. The final USDOC rulings are expected in January 2017 with a final U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determination next March.

The USW filed the initial petition on Jan. 29, 2016, that began the trade investigation.

In a statement issued by the USW, Leo Gerard, international president, said: “The government investigators and our trade counsel have been diligent in handling this massive trade case involving more than $1 billion value of truck and bus tire imports from China in 2015, increasing market share each of the last three years at the expense of American producers and USW tire production workers.”

He added, “Unfair truck tire imports from China have denied our domestic industry the opportunity to share in job increases during a period of robust demand growth.”

The chair of the union’s national rubber tire bargaining conference, USW International Secretary-Treasurer Stan Johnson, said: “Again and again China has been shown to benefit from massive subsidies and to engage in widespread dumping in order to gain market share at the expense of American jobs. Chinese truck tire imports have grown from 6.3 million in 2012 to 8.9 million in 2015 with an increased share of consumption of more than 36% by 2014.”

The USW represents 6,000 workers at five facilities in the U.S. that account for more than two-thirds of domestic capacity to produce truck and bus tires. The tire production facilities are operated by Bridgestone-Firestone, Goodyear and Sumitomo, and they are located in LaVergne and Warren County, Tenn., Buffalo, N.Y., Danville, Va., and Topeka, Kan.
