Ternium/Hylsa and Mueller Comercial Suffer Import Duty Rate Increase After Refusing to Participate in Antidumping Duty Review of Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from Mexico:  Ternium/Hylsa's U.S. Antidumping Duty Rate to Jump from 10.38% to 48.33%, Mueller Comercial also to Suffers Increase from 32.62% to 48.33%

On December 7, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published the Preliminary Results of its antidumping duty administrative review of certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico.  Because of lack of cooperation in the review, the Department of Commerce determined that Ternium Mexico (f.k.a. Hylsa) and Mueller Comercial were dumping circular welded non-alloy steel pipe in the United States.  The Department of Commerce used facts available with an inference adverse to Ternium and Mueller to assign a 48.33% antidumping duty rate.  If these results do not change in the Final Determination, the Department of Commerce will instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate entries of circular welded non-alloy steel pipe produced by Ternium and Mueller at this rate.

IMPORTERS - watch for the final results and liquidation instructions and liquidations carefully.  If there are any errors in the instructions, you must sue the Department of Commerce within 2 years.  If the U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not liquidate your entries within 6 months of publication of the final, by law the merchandise liquidates as entered.  In this case, that would mean you would not be liable for the increase in antidumping duties.

Current Rates:

Ternium Mexico, S.A. de C.V.(fka Hylsa S.A. de C.V.) -- 10.38%
Tuberia Nacional S.A. de C.V. -- 2.92%
