MEXICO CITY (Scrap Register): Mexico's government said on Friday that it would impose anti-dumping duties on cold-rolled steel sheet from China after an anti-dumping investigation.
The government said that it was placing tariffs of 65.99% on imports from Baoshan Iron & Steel Co Ltd and 82.08% on those from Tangshan Iron and Steel Group Co Ltd.
It imposed a duty of 103.41% on imports from Beijing Shougang Cold Rolling Co, Shougang Jingtang United Iron & Steel Co and all other export companies.
Altos Hornos de Mexico, one of the Mexican companies whose complaints led to the investigation, said earlier this month that Mexico's efforts had been slow and insufficient given the growth of imports of steel products at dumping prices.
Earlier this month, Mexico imposed provisional import duties on hot-rolled steel from Germany, China and France.
