China extends anti-dumping on catechol from US and Japan

BEIJING, CHINA: The Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOC) will continue to impose anti-dumping measures against catechol imports from the United States and Japan for another five years starting from 22 May 2012. If such measures cease to be implemented, the dumping of imported catechol from the US and Japan may continue to occur in China and cause damage to the domestic catechol industry, said MOC in a statement.

The MOC handed down the ruling after a one-year review of the previous anti-dumping measures, which were imposed in 2006 and were set to expire on 22 May 2012. During the review period, the MOC examined the possibility of continuing the anti-dumping measures and evaluated any possible damage that might result if the measures were discontinued. China implemented a five-year anti-dumping duty of 4 per cent to 46.81 per cent on catechol imports from US and Japan on 22 May 2012.
