On November 1, 2018, the U.S. Court of International Trade remanded the negative U.S. Court of International Trade injury determination on truck and bus tires from China. The USITC will now review the USCIT decision and the underlying record as it considers how to proceed. The court has given the Commission time to conduct the remand.
Effective enforcement of U.S. trade remedy laws is very important to the U.S. retread industry. Retreading commercial truck tires in the United States is a 3 billion dollar industry that has significant economic & environmental benefits to our nation. There are well over 100,000 U.S. jobs in retreading and related industries that are being threatened by the importation of non-retreadable truck and bus tires from China that are sold at below fair market value.
Retread Instead® is a coalition of retread industry supporters that was created to enhance the awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of retreading throughout North America. Retread Instead®supports imposing tariffs, antidumping duties (AD) and countervailing duties (CVD) on commercial Chinese truck and bus tires that are imported into the United States because China is a “non-market economy” that dumps low-quality non-retreadable truck tires into the U.S below fair market value thus undermining the retread industry.
