NEW YORK — Four Chinese OTR tire manufacturers have followed through on their promise to appeal the U.S. Department of Commerce's revamped antidumping and countervailing duties against them for the 2014-15 review period.
Aeolus Tyre Co. Ltd., Guizhou Tyre Co. Ltd., Qingdao Free Trade Zone Full-World International Trading Co. Ltd. and Xuzhou Xugong Tyres Co. Ltd. all filed separate complaints before the U.S. Court of International Trade in New York May 4 and 5, requesting reversal and remand of the Commerce rulings.
All of the appeals were filed well within the 30-day deadline after the publication of the Commerce decisions in the Federal Register. The agency released the results of its countervailing duty review for calendar year 2014 on April 18, and the results of its antidumping duty review for Sept. 1, 2014, through Aug. 31, 2015, on April 21.
In those determinations, Commerce revised countervailing duties during the period to between 34.46 and 46.01 percent, and antidumping duties to between 33.08 and 105.31 percent.
