Effective May 15, 2014, Brazil’s Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade has shelved the dumping investigation into the imports from China of rubber inner tubes for bicycle tires classified under MERCOSUR’s Common Nomenclature Code (NCM) 4013.20.00. The investigation was initiated in SECEX Circular No. 58, on October 4, 2013. However, according to SECEX Circular No. 21, which was recently published in the Brazilian Official Gazette, there was no evidence to support the analysis of harm to Brazilian industry.
