Anti-dumping

On 11 October 2011, the Government of Mexico initiated an anti-dumping investigation on bond paper, weighing 40 g/m² or more but not more than 150 g/m², in sheets with one side not exceeding 435 mm and the other side not exceeding 297 mm in the unfolded state, from Brazil.
This investigation was requested by Bio Pappel Printing S.A. de C.V., Grupo Papelero Scribe S.A. de C.V., Michoacana Industrial Papelera S.A. de C.V., and Pondercel S.A. de C.V. These Mexican enterprises account for 100% of Mexico's production of this type of paper.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following item of Mexico's Harmonized System: 4802.56.01 and 4823.9099.
In accordance with the Mexican legislation, 90 days after the initiation of the investigation the authorities must issue a preliminary determination: (a) adopting preliminary anti-dumping duties, (b) announcing the continuance of the investigation without imposing preliminary duties or (c) concluding the investigation due to lack of evidence.
In all cases, 210 days after the initiation of the procedures the Mexican authorities must issue a final determination. Through this decision, the Government will announce if this kind of products from Brazil will face final anti-dumping duties.
 
On 3 August 2012, the Government imposed provisional duties on imports of the subject product, with the dumping margin calculated as between 51.29 and 62.37%.
 
On 11 March 2013, the Government of Mexico adopted anti-dumping duties against imports of bond paper from Brazil. The measure consists of anti-dumping duties of 37.78% for all imports of bond paper from Brazil.

On 6 March 2018, the Mexican authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Brazil. This review follows the request lodged on 26 January 2018 by Bio Pappel Scribe, S.A. de C.V. and Pondercel, S.A. de C.V. The existing anti-dumping measure remains in force during the review. The Resolution was issued on 5 March 2018.
