SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China will extend antidumping duties on chloroprene rubber imports from the US, EU and Japan for another five years, the Ministry of Commerce said on Monday.

The ministry made the decision after a one-year probe, which found that the dumping activities would continue if duties are terminated, the ministry said.

With effect from 10 May, an antidumping duty of 151% will be levied on chloroprene rubber imports from the US, while imports from the EU will have an antidumping duty rate of 11-151%, the Ministry of Commerce said. Cargoes from Japan will be subject to an antidumping duty of 9.9-43.9%, the ministry added.

China has been imposing antidumping duties on chloroprene rubber imports since 2005.
