Anniversary Month: month

Rates:

PRC-wide Rate for Brake Drums-86.02%
PRC-wide Rate for Brake Rotors-43.32%

Scope:

The products covered by these two
investigations are (1) certain brake
drums and (2) certain brake rotors.

Brake Drums

Brake drums are made of gray cast
iron, whether finished, semifinished, or
unfinished, ranging in diameter from 8
to 16 inches (20.32 to 40.64 centimeters)
and in weight from 8 to 45 pounds (3.63
to 20.41 kilograms). The size parameters
(weight and dimension) of the brake
drums limit their use to the following
types of motor vehicles: automobiles,
all-terrain vehicles, vans and recreational vehicles under ‘‘one ton
and a half,’’ and light trucks designated
as ‘‘one ton and a half.’’

Finished brake drums are those that
are ready for sale and installation
without any further operations. Semifinished drums are those on which the surface is not entirely smooth, and has undergone some drilling. Unfinished
drums are those which have undergone
some grinding or turning.

These brake drums are for motor
vehicles, and do not contain in the
casting a logo of an original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) which produces
vehicles sold in the United States (e.g.,
General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Honda,
Toyota, Volvo). Brake drums covered in
this investigation are not certified by
OEM producers of vehicles sold in the
United States. The scope also includes
composite brake drums that are made of
  gray cast iron, which contain a steel plate, but otherwise meet the above
criteria.

Brake drums are classifiable under
subheading 8708.39.5010 of the
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the
United States (HTSUS). Although the
HTSUS subheading is provided for
convenience and Customs purposes, our
written description of the scope of this
investigation is dispositive.

Brake Rotors

Brake rotors are made of gray cast
iron, whether finished, semifinished, or
unfinished, ranging in diameter from 8
to 16 inches (20.32 to 40.64 centimeters)
and in weight from 8 to 45 pounds (3.63
to 20.41 kilograms). The size parameters
(weight and dimension) of the brake
rotors limit their use to the following
types of motor vehicles: automobiles,
all-terrain vehicles, vans and
recreational vehicles under ‘‘one ton
and a half,’’ and light trucks designated
as ‘‘one ton and a half.’’

Finished brake rotors are those that
are ready for sale and installation
without any further operations. Semifinished rotors are those on which the surface is not entirely smooth, and has undergone some drilling. Unfinished
rotors are those which have undergone
some grinding or turning.

These brake rotors are for motor
vehicles, and do not contain in the
casting a logo of an original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) which produces
vehicles sold in the United States (e.g.,
General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Honda,
Toyota, Volvo). Brake rotors covered in
this investigation are not certified by
OEM producers of vehicles sold in the
United States. The scope also includes
composite brake rotors that are made of
gray cast iron, which contain a steel
plate, but otherwise meet the above
criteria.

Brake rotors are classifiable under
subheading 8708.39.5010 of the HTSUS.
Although the HTSUS subheading is
provided for convenience and Customs
purposes, our written description of the
scope of this investigation is dispositive.
