The anti-dumping investigation initiated on February 3, 2009, upon request of Prottsa, S.A. de C.V. On March 5, 2010, the Mexican Ministry of Economy issued its preliminary determination agreeing to continue the investigation without imposing preliminary duties to Chinese imports of this product.

The existing anti-dumping measure remains in force during the review.
On 4 November 2015, the Mexican authorities concluded the sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of certain steel nuts from China and decided to retrospectively terminate the definitive duty on 4 August 2015.
