Brazil extends anti-dumping duties on tyres from China

MEDELLIN, Colombia (ICIS)--Brazil’s Chamber of Foreign Trade (Camex) has approved additional anti-dumping duties on imports of passenger car tyres from China for a period of up to five years, the government agency said on Monday.

The duties apply to imports of Chinese-made 65-series and 75-series tyres of radial design, with 13-inch and 14-inch rims and 165, 175 and 185 bands, Camex said.

Chinese producers exporting to Brazil will be subject to surcharges ranging from $1.08/kg (€0.81/kg) to $2.17/kg, the agency said.

Brazil’s foreign trade secretariat (Secex) began an anti-dumping investigation following a request by the country’s tyre industry association (ANIP) in December 2011.

ANIP argued that a previous anti-dumping duty of $0.75/kilo, in effect since September 2009, was insufficient to protect domestic industry from the practice of dumping.

Tyres are a key end product for styrene butadiene rubber (SBR).
