BEIJING - The Ministry of Commerce (MOC) announced Wednesday that it will review anti-dumping measures on nonylphenol (NP) imported from India and Taiwan.
NP is used as a chemical intermediate. It is often a precursor to commercially important detergents and is widely used in the production of surfactant and paint.
The review will evaluate the possibilities for dumping and damages if the measures were lifted, said the MOC.
The MOC slapped five-year anti-dumping duties ranging from 4.08 percent to 20.38 percent on NP imports from India and Taiwan on March 28, 2007, after finding that the imports hurt the interests of domestic producers.
The review will start from Thursday at the request of applications submitted by the domestic industry on December 30, 2011, and will be finished within 12 months, the MOC said.
