International Trade Administration

North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Article 1904 
Binational Panel Reviews: Notice of Termination of Panel Review

AGENCY: NAFTA Secretariat, United States Section, International Trade 
Administration, Department of Commerce.

ACTION: On August 9, 2012, a Motion to Terminate Panel Review of the 
final results of the U.S. Department of Commerce's 2009-2010 
Antidumping Administrative Review of Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and 
Tube from Mexico (Secretariat File No. USA-MEX-2012-1904-01).


SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Notice of Motion requesting termination of the 
panel review by a participant and consented to by all the participants, 
the panel review is terminated as of August 9, 2012. A panel has not 
been appointed to this panel review. Pursuant to Rule 71(2) of the 
Rules of Procedure for Article 1904 Binational Panel Review, this panel 
review is terminated.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ellen Bohon, United States Secretary, 
NAFTA Secretariat, Suite 2061, 14th and Constitution Avenue, 
Washington, DC 20230, (202) 482-5438.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Chapter 19 of the North American Free Trade 
Agreement (``Agreement'') established a mechanism to replace domestic 
judicial review of final determinations in antidumping and 
countervailing duty cases involving imports from a NAFTA country with 
review by independent binational panels. When a Request for Panel 
Review is filed, a panel is established to act in place of national 
courts to review expeditiously the final determination to determine 
whether it conforms with the antidumping or countervailing duty law of 
the country that made the determination.
    Under Article 1904 of the Agreement, which came into force on 
January 1, 1994, the Government of the United States, the Government of 
Canada, and the Government of Mexico established Rules of Procedure for 
Article 1904 Binational Panel Reviews (``Rules''). These Rules were 
published in the Federal Register on February 23, 1994 (59 FR 8686). 
The panel review in this matter was requested and terminated pursuant 
to these Rules.

    Dated: August 13, 2012.
Ellen Bohon,
United States Secretary, NAFTA Secretariat.
