SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China said on Thursday the current antidumping duties (ADDs) on bisphenol A (BPA) imports from Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan will be extended for another five years, with effect from 30 August this year.
Following a year-long review, the country’s Ministry of Commerce said the BPA imports from these countries are likely to continue hurting China’s domestic BPA industry if the ADDs are lifted.
China subsequently reduced its ADDs on BPA imports from LG Chemical to 4.7% from 6.4% on 15 December 2009 following a second review requested by the South Korean producer. LG Chemical in September 2008 requested the ministry to reassess the ADDs on its BPA imports into China.
