China reviews anti-dumping measures on methyl ethyl ketone imports

BEIJING, CHINA: The Chinese mainland will launch a review of anti-dumping measures against methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) imported from Japan and Taiwan starting on 28 November 2012, the Ministry of Commerce announced in an online statement.

The decision came after the ministry received applications from Chinese mainland producers to ask for maintaining existing anti-dumping measures on MEK imports. These measures were due to be terminated on 29 November 2012.

The Chinese mainland started to levy tariffs ranging from 9.6 per cent to 66.45 per cent on MEK imported from Japan, Taiwan and Singapore for five years on 22 November 2007, after finding that the imports had brought losses to local manufacturers. The statement said the MOC will announce the results of its review before 21 November 2013.
