China mulls ADD extension on TDI imports

SHANGHAI (ICIS news)--China will launch a one-year probe into toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) imports from Japan, South Korea and the US from 22 November, in line with the formal expiry of the existing anti-dumping duties (ADD) measure, the Ministry of Commerce said on Friday on its website.

The investigation was aimed at determining how imports hurt the domestic TDI industry and whether there are reasonable grounds for an official extension of the duty.

Domestic TDI producers lodged an application for the probe on 1 September and said the dumping of TDI imports from the above countries would harm the domestic TDI industry after the ADD policy expires.

During the investigation period, China would still impose the ADD on TDI imports from Japan, South Korea and the US.

China levied the ADD on TDI imports from Japan, South Korea and the US from 22 November 2003 to 22 November 2008.
