KOLKATA (ICIS)--India has extended the antidumping duties (ADDs) that apply on rubber chemicals imports from China by a year to May 2014, after a five-year implementation, a government official said on Friday.

“The extension … was necessary since the sunset review of the ADD which commenced in April 2013 was yet to be completed,” the official from the Directorate General of Antidumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) said.

The ADDs ranging from Indian rupees (Rs) 13.05-60.59/kg ($0.22-$1.00/kg) apply to rubber chemicals such as mercapto benzothiazole (MBT), cyclohexl benzothiazole sulphenamide (CBS), trimethyl dihydroquinoline (TDQ), n-cyclohexylthio pthalimide (PVI), tetramethylthiuram disulfide (TMT) and N-1,3-dimethyl butyl.

The DGAD official said that the one-year ADD extension on Chinese rubber chemical imports could be revised or scrapped before they expire in May 2014, subject to completion of the agency’s review.

India slapped the five-year ADDs on chemical rubber imports from both China and South Korea in 2008.

It is yet unclear whether the one-year extension would apply to material procured from South Korea.
