GDLSK ended 2018 and started 2019 with complete victories before the Court of International Trade (CIT) for its clients in appeals of the fifth and sixth administrative reviews of the antidumping duty (AD) order on off-the-road tires (OTR) from China.
In the sixth review, the CIT on December 21, 2018, ordered the Department of Commerce (DOC) to reduce the AD margin of GDLSK client Qingdao Qihang Tyre Co., Ltd. from 78.86% to 13.83%. GDLSK convinced the CIT that DOC erroneously: (1) adjusted U.S. prices based on Chinese value-added tax (VAT); (2) valued reclaimed rubber; and (3) valued inland freight: https://www.cit.uscourts.gov/sites/cit/files/18-176.pdf
In the fifth review, the CIT on January 16, 2019, ordered DOC to reconsider the AD margin assigned to GDLSK client Guizhou Tyre Co., Ltd. Although DOC has not yet recalculated the AD margin, GDLSK convinced the CIT that DOC erroneously: (1) adjusted U.S. prices based on Chinese VAT; and (2) valued brokerage, handling, and ocean freight costs: https://www.cit.uscourts.gov/sites/cit/files/19-07.pdf
If your company is dissatisfied with its results in an administrative review, GDLSK can vigorously pursue reduction of your AD margin through CIT appeal. For more information about these OTR victories, contact GDLSK attorneys Ned Marshak or Brandon Petelin.
