Truck and Bus Tires From the People's Republic of China: 
Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On November 1, 2018 the U.S. Court of International Trade 
(CIT) remanded the International Trade Commission's (ITC) final 
negative injury determination on truck and bus tires from the People's 
Republic of China (China). On January 30, 2019, the ITC filed its final 
remand determination, finding material injury to an industry in the 
United States by reason of imports of truck and bus tires from China. 
Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce 
(Commerce) and the ITC, Commerce is issuing an antidumping duty order 
on truck and bus tires from China. Therefore, Commerce will direct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation and collect 
cash deposits on entries of truck and bus tires from China at the ad 
valorem rates listed below.

DATES: Applicable February 15, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yang Jin Chun or Andre Gziryan, AD/CVD

Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue

respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on January 27, 
2017, Commerce published affirmative final determinations of sales at 
less than fair value and critical circumstances in the investigation of 
truck and bus tires from China.\1\ On March 13, 2017, the ITC notified 
Commerce of its final determination that an industry in the United 
States is not materially injured or threatened with material injury 
within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A) of the Act by reason of 
imports of truck and bus tires from China at less than fair value.\2\ 
Accordingly, Commerce instructed CBP to liquidate entries of subject 
merchandise without regard to antidumping duties.\3\ On November 1, 
2018, the CIT remanded the ITC's final negative determination.\4\ On 
January 30, 2019, upon remand, the ITC issued its final determination, 
in which the ITC found that an industry in the United States is 
materially injured by reason of imports of truck and bus tires from 
China. However, in its final determination upon remand, the ITC found 
that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of 
subject merchandise from China that are subject to Commerce's final 
affirmative critical circumstances finding.

(Ct. Int'l Trade Nov. 1, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On February 8, 2019, pursuant to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 
Federal Circuit's (CAFC) opinion in Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers 
Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374, 1381 (Fed. Cir. 2010), the 
ITC notified Commerce of this determination upon remand.\5\ In Diamond 
Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition, the CAFC clarified that the same 
procedures for issuance of an order and collection of cash deposits 
apply when a material injury determination is made upon remand, and 
that the ITC should provide notice to Commerce of its remand 
determination at the time that it is issued, notwithstanding the 
pendency of ongoing litigation.\6\ Moreover, the CAFC held that 
Commerce's duty to publish an order is triggered by the ITC's 
notification of its affirmative injury determination, rather than the 
date of the publication of the notice of such determination.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See the Letter from the ITC to Commerce dated February 8, 
2019.
    \6\ See Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition, 626 F.3d at 
1381-82.
    \7\ Id. at 1379, n.2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this antidumping duty order are truck and 
bus tires. For a complete description for the scope of the order, see 
the ``Scope of the Order'' in the Appendix of this notice.

Antidumping Duty Order

    As stated above, upon remand, the ITC issued its final affirmative 
determination. In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act and Diamond 
Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. 
Cir. 2010), the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination in its 
investigation, in which it found that an industry in the United States 
is materially injured by reason of imports of truck and bus tires from 
China.\8\ Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, 
we are publishing this antidumping duty order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, 
Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by 
Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal 
value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed 
export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of truck and 
bus tires from China. These antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of truck and bus tires from China entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective 
date of this antidumping duty order.

[[Page 4437]]

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, effective the 
publication date of this order, we will instruct CBP to suspend 
liquidation on all entries of truck and bus tires from China. These 
instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits at rates equal 
to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins indicated below. 
Accordingly, effective the publication date of this order, CBP will 
require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated 
duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit at rates equal to 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins adjusted for domestic 
pass-through subsidies and export subsidies found in the amended final 
determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation of 
this merchandise imported from China.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Final Determinations, 82 FR at 8604. See also Truck and 
Bus Tires from the People's Republic of China: Amended Final 
Determination and Countervailing Duty Order (Countervailing Duty 
Order), signed concurrently with this notice. In the Final 
Determination, we explained that the countervailing duty rate 
attributable to domestic pass-through subsidies and export subsidies 
is 27.59 percent and, if the ITC makes an affirmative final 
determination, the adjusted cash deposit rate will be zero percent 
for Prinx Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co., Ltd. (PCT), the non-
selected separate rate respondents, and the China-wide Entity. See 
Final Determinations, 82 FR at 8604. The amended final determination 
of the concurrent countervailing duty investigation has changed the 
countervailing duty rate attributable to domestic pass-through 
subsidies and export subsidies to 19.74 percent. See Countervailing 
Duty Order at 3, n.9, and the Memorandum, ``Truck and Bus Tires from 
the People's Republic of China: Amended Cash Deposit Rate for the 
China-Wide Entity'' dated concurrently with this notice. We deducted 
this 19.74 percentage point from the calculate margins for PCT, the 
non-selected separate rate respondents, and the China-wide entity. 
This amended countervailing duty rate changes the adjusted cash 
deposit rate for China-wide entity from zero percent to 2.83 percent 
but the adjusted cash deposit rates for PCT and the non-selected 
separate rate respondents remain at zero percent.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Critical Circumstances

    In its final affirmative determination upon remand, the ITC found 
no critical circumstances on imports of truck and bus tires from China. 
Accordingly, Commerce will not instruct CBP to suspend entries pursuant 
to section 733(e)(2) of the Act.

Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins

    The estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Weighted-
            Exporter                     Producer         average margin
                                                             (percent)

Interested parties can find a list of antidumping duty orders currently

    This order is published in accordance with sections 736(a) of the

    Dated: February 12, 2019.

Appendix

Scope of the Order

    The scope of the order covers truck and bus tires. Truck and bus 
tires are new pneumatic tires, of rubber, with a truck or bus size 
designation. Truck and bus tires covered by this order may be tube-
type, tubeless, radial, or non-radial.
    Subject tires have, at the time of importation, the symbol 
``DOT'' on the sidewall, certifying that the tire conforms to 
applicable motor vehicle safety standards. Subject tires may also 
have one of the following suffixes in their tire size designation, 
which also appear on the sidewall of the tire:
    TR--Identifies tires for service on trucks or buses to 
differentiate them from similarly sized passenger car and light 
truck tires; and
    HC--Identifies a 17.5 inch rim diameter code for use on low 
platform trailers.
    All tires with a ``TR'' or ``HC'' suffix in their size 
designations are covered by this order regardless of their intended 
use.
    In addition, all tires that lack one of the above suffix 
markings are included in the scope, regardless of their intended 
use, as long as the tire is of a size that is among the numerical 
size designations listed in the ``Truck-Bus'' section of the Tire 
and Rim Association Year Book, as updated annually, unless the tire 
falls within one of the specific exclusions set out below.
    Truck and bus tires, whether or not mounted on wheels or rims, 
are included in the scope. However, if a subject tire is imported 
mounted on a wheel or rim, only the tire is covered by the scope. 
Subject merchandise includes truck and bus tires produced in the 
subject country whether mounted on wheels or rims in the subject 
country or in a third country. Truck and bus tires are covered 
whether or not they are accompanied by other parts, e.g., a wheel, 
rim, axle parts, bolts, nuts, etc. Truck and bus tires that enter 
attached to a vehicle are not covered by the scope.
    Specifically excluded from the scope of this order are the 
following types of tires: (1) Pneumatic tires, of rubber, that are 
not new, including recycled and retreaded tires; (2) non-pneumatic 
tires, such as solid rubber tires; and (3) tires that exhibit each 
of the following physical characteristics: (a) The designation 
``MH'' is molded into the tire's sidewall as part of the size 
designation; (b) the tire incorporates a warning, prominently molded 
on the sidewall, that the tire is for ``Mobile Home Use Only;'' and 
(c) the tire is of bias construction as evidenced by the fact that 
the construction code included in the size designation molded into 
the tire's sidewall is not the letter ``R.''
    The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 
4011.20.1015 and 4011.20.5020. Tires meeting the scope description 
may also enter under the following HTSUS subheadings: 4011.69.0020, 
4011.69.0090, 4011.70.00, 4011.90.80, 4011.99.4520, 4011.99.4590, 
4011.99.8520, 4011.99.8590, 8708.70.4530, 8708.70.6030, 
8708.70.6060, and 8716.90.5059.
    While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for 
customs purposes, the written description of the subject merchandise 
is dispositive.
