The US Department of Commerce preliminarily determined that a Mexican producer of light-walled rectangular steel pipe and tube made sales at less-than-fair-value (LTFV) to the US.
In an order scheduled for publication on Dec 23, Commerce determined that Regiomontana de Perfiles y Tubos (Regiopytsa) made sales at LTFV during the period of review, August 1, 2018, through July 31, 2019. Accordingly, it has assigned a weighted-average dumping margin of 5.44pc to the exporter, along with five other Mexican producers. An all-others rate of 3.76pc will be considered for other exporters of this material imported from Mexico.
The other companies that were assigned the 5.44pc antidumping (AD) duty include Aceros Cuatro Caminos, Fabricaciones y Servicios de Mexico, Grupo Estructuras y Perfiles, Perfiles LM, and Productos Laminados de Monterrey.
On publication of the final results of this review, Commerce will instruct US Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits equivalent to the AD margins assigned.
