Anti-dumping

On February 22, 2012, the Mexican authorities decided, after having conducted an expiry review, to continue the anti-dumping duty on imports of carbon steel plates from Romania, Russia and Ukraine (Resolución final del examen de vigencia y de la revisión de oficio de las cuotas compensatorias impuestas sobre las importaciones de placa de acero en hoja al carbono..., 22.02.2012).
The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 7208.5101, 7208.5102, 7208.5103 and 7208.5201. The rate of the duty is 67.6% for all Romanian exporters, 36.8% for all Russian exporters and 60.1% for all Ukrainian exporters.
This definitive 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 March 13, 2012, for a period of five years (from September 22, 2010 onwards).

This duty follows an expiry review requested on August 16, 2010 by Altos Hornos de México S.A.B. de C.V. A review was then initiated by the Mexican Ministry of Economy on September 13, 2010 (Resolución por la que se declara el inicio de los procedimientos de vigencia y de la revisión de oficio de la cuota compensatoria impuesta a las importaciones de placa de acero en hoja al carbono..., 13.09.2010). The review started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on September 22, 2010.
In a preliminar resolution on November 15, 2011, the Mexican authorities announced the continuation of the review (Resolución preliminar de la revisión de oficio de las cuotas compensatorias sobre las importaciones de placa de acero en hoja al carbon..., 15.11.2011).

The original anti-dumping duty entered into force on September 22, 2005 (Resolución final de la investigación anti-dumping sobre las importaciones de placa de acero en hoja al carbono..., 08.09.2005).

On August 27th, 2015, the Mexican Ministry of Economy decided to initiate a second sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of carbon steel plates from Romania, Russia and Ukraine. This review follows the application lodged on August 14th, 2015 by Altos Hornos de México S.A.B. de C.V. The review started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on September 8th, 2015.
The existing anti-dumping measure remains in force during the review.
 
On 8 September 2016, following the conclusion the above sunset review, the Mexican Ministry of Economy extended the current definitive anti-dumping duty on carbon steel plates from Romania, Russia and Ukraine. As such, the rate of the duty is 67.6% for all Romanian exporters, 36.8% for all Russian exporters and 60.1% for all Ukrainian exporters. The duty enters into force on 22 September 2015 for a period of five years.
