Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico: Notice of NAFTA Panel Decision Not In Harmony With Final Results of Sunset Administrative Review
On July 19, 2007, a Bi-National Panel (``Panel'') constituted under the North American Free Trade Agreement (``NAFTA'') affirmed the Department of Commerce's (``the Department's'') redetermination on remand of the final results of the sunset review on oil country tubular goods from Mexico. See In the Matter of: Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico; Final Results of Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, USA-MEX-2001-1904-03 (July 19, 2007) (``NAFTA Final Decision''). The Panel issued its Notice of Final Panel Action in the above-referenced matter on July 30, 2007. This case arises out of the Department's determination in the final results of the first sunset review covering entries for the five years after August 11, 1995. See Oil Country Tubular Goods (``OCTG'') from Mexico: Final Results of Sunset Review of Antidumping Order, 66 FR 14131 (March 9, 2001) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (``Final Results''). Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (``Timken''), the Department is notifying the public that the NAFTA Final Decision and the Notice of Final Panel Action are not in harmony with the Department's Final Results.
