MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s Secretariat of Economy is investigating an alleged evasion of anti-dumping duties on imports of rolled steel plates from Russia.

The investigation was opened following a request by Ternium Mexico SA de CV, according to a resolution published July 5 in Mexico’s official gazette, and targets material from 4.75- to 10-millimeters thick.

The case is very similar to an investigation opened at the end of May, involving boron-containing plate from Russia and Ukraine, although that covered plate up to 115-mm thick (amm.com, May 15).....
