Anti-dumping

On September 27, 2012, the Mexican Ministry of Economy decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of flat cold-rolled products of iron or non-alloy steel from South Korea (Resolución por la que se acepta la solicitud de parte interesada y se declara el inicio de la investigación anti-dumping sobre las importaciones de lámina rolada en frío..., 27.09.2012). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7209.1601, 7209.1701, 7209.1801, 7225.5002, 7225.5003, 7225.5004, 7225.5099 and 9802.0013. The complaint was lodged on July 6, 2012 by Ternium México S.A. de C.V. The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on October 2, 2012.
 
On May 21, 2013, the Mexican authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of flat cold-rolled products of iron or non-alloy steel from South Korea (Resolución preliminar de la investigación anti-dumping sobre las importaciones de lámina rolada en frío..., 21.05.2013). The rate of this provisional duty ranges from 6.45% to 60.40%, depending on the Korean exporter. This provisional anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on June 4, 2013.
 
On December 20, 2013, the Mexican authorities accepted the price commitments of the Korean exporters POSCO and Hyundai and therefore decided to suspend the imposition of the above provisional anti-dumping duty and investigation (Resolución por la que se aceptan los compromisos de las exportadoras Posco y Hyundai Hysco Co. Ltd. y se suspende el procedimiento de la investigación anti-dumping sobre las importaciones de lámina rolada en frío, 20.12.2013). The Resolution entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on December 27, 2013.
