On November 29, 2010, the Government of Peru eliminated the anti-dumping duties applicable to imports of Portland cement from Mexico.
The anti-dumping investigation was initiated on September 7, 2006 upon request of Compañía Minera Agregados Calcáreos S.A. On June 5, 2007, the Peruvian authorities adopted an anti-dumping duty against imports of the product from Mexico classified under the following tariff code of Peru's Harmonized System: 2523.21.00.00. The measure consisted of a minimum import price of US$63 dollars per ton. The anti-dumping duty was later reduced to US$62 dollars per ton.
The elimination of this anti-dumping duty is a result of several judicial proceedings initiated by the Mexican producer and exporter CEMEX against the application of this measure.
