SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China has started expiry review on anti-dumping measure for methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) cargoes imported from Taiwan and Japan, China Commerce Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

The ministry will announce the final review decision before 21 November 2013. During the one-year review period, the ministry will investigate whether the anti-dumping duties (ADDs) need to be extended, it added.

China Commerce Ministry imposed ADDs for MEK cargoes imported from Japan at between 9.6% and 66.4% and for the cargoes imported from Taiwan at 25% on 21 November 2007, which was to last for five years, according to earlier statement from the ministry.
