The European Commission (EC) plans to bring back customs duties on some chemicals that were given tariff breaks when demand was high.
The EC's proposed move covers the following chemicals:
Hydrazine, hydroxylamine, alcohol-derived organic chemicals, laminated polymer strip, Terephthalate film and Man-made polypropylene filament.
No information was available on when the tariffs could be lifted. However, while some chemicals could see duties lifted, demand for others such as difluoroethane and naphthalene remains high and suspension of customs duties on them will remain.
