SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China will terminate its antidumping (ADD) duty on methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) imported from Japan, Taiwan and Singapore from 22 November 2012, the country's Ministry of Commerce announced on Thursday.

The ADD will be lifted after five years of implementation.

On 22 November 2007, China has started imposing ADD ranging from 9.6%-66.4% for Japan MEK producers and a 25% duty on Taiwanese producers. For Singapore MEK producers, a 17.0% ADD rate is in effect in China, according to the ministry.

Requests for extension will be entertained within 60 days before the ADD expires in November.
