Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico: Termination of Suspension Agreement

The Department of Commerce (DOC) announced they are terminating the 2013 Suspension Agreement on Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico, resulting in reinstatement of antidumping duties (AD).

Commerce (DOC) will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of entries of fresh tomatoes from Mexico that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after May 7, 2019.  Preliminary dumping rates range from 4.16% to 188.45%.

Their antidumping (AD) investigation will continue.  If the DOC and International Trade Commission (ITC) both issue affirmative final determination, with injury to U.S. companies found, an antidumping duty (AD) order will be issued.

Negotiations will continue regarding a possible revised agreement.
