Hanoi (VNA) – The Department of Commercial Defence (Decom) under Brazil’s Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services has initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty order on new rubber tyres for bicycles classified under NCM 4011.50.00 from Vietnam, India, and China.

Decom initiated anti-dumping duties against the product in December 2014, with duties imposed on Vietnam’s rubber bicycle tyres standing at 0.59-2.8 USD per kg. 

The department required exporters of relevant countries to respond to questionnaires indicating the information necessary to the investigation on Decom’s portal decomdigital.mdic.gov.br. They shall have a 30-day deadline for response, counting from the date of notification.

The deadline can be extended up to 30 days based on request of relevant sides, the Brazilian authority added. 

According to the Department of Trade Defence under Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, India will be the reference nation to calculate the product’s common value. In case Vietnam’s exporters and manufacturers disagree with this decision, they are allowed to state their opinions within 70 days from the beginning of the sunset review (with no extension).

Information and data submitted to Decom must be translated into Portuguese or one of the official working languages of the World Trade Organisation. –VNA
