Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Truck and Bus Tires. The International Trade Administration has initiated antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of truck and bus tires form China. The alleged dumping margins range from 19.91 percent to 22.57 percent.

The tires included in the scope of these investigations are new pneumatic tires of rubber with a truck or bus size designation and may be tube-type, tubeless, radial or non-radial. Covered tires are included whether or not mounted on wheels or rims, whether mounted on wheels or rims in China or a third country, and whether or not accompanied by other parts such as wheels, rims, axle parts, bolts, nuts, etc. Subject imports are normally classified in HTSUS subheadings 4011.20.1015 and 4011.20.5020 but may also enter under subheadings 4011.99.4520, 4011.99.4590, 4011.99.8520, 4011.99.8590, 8708.70.4530, 8708.70.6030, and 8708.70.6060.

The following tires are excluded from the scope of these investigations: truck and bus tires that enter attached to a vehicle; pneumatic tires of rubber that are not new, including recycled and retreaded tires; and non-pneumatic tires, such as solid rubber tires.

Pasta. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on pasta from Italy for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013, the ITA has determined a net subsidy rate of 2.12 percent for DeMatteis Agroalimentare S.p.A. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 23.

The ITA has also calculated a de minimis net subsidy rate for La Molisana S.p.A.; as a result, CV duties will not be assessed on entries of subject goods from this company during the period of review and no CV cash deposits will be required for subject goods from this company that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 23.

Finally, the ITA is rescinding this review with respect to La Molisana Industrie Alimentari S.p.A, which ceased operations prior to the period of review.
