China's Ministry of Commerce announced Thursday that it will launch an expiry review of anti-dumping measures aimed at toluidine, an organic chemical imported from the European Union (EU).

China in 2013 imposed anti-dumping duties on toluidine imported from the EU, with rates ranging from 19.6 to 36.9 percent. In 2019, China opted to extend these duties for another five years, according to a statement from the ministry.

Toluidine is widely used in the production of dyes, medicines and farm chemicals.

The expiry review, requested by domestic toluidine producers, will determine if terminating anti-dumping measures will lead to continued dumping and harm, the statement said.

The Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council said it will maintain the anti-dumping duties during the review, with scope and rates remaining unchanged.

Currently, the rates are 19.6 percent for toluidine imports from LANXESS Deutschland, GmbH, and 36.9 percent for those from other EU companies, the statement said. 

Toluidine imports from Britain will be exempt from anti-dumping measures starting June 28, according to the statement.
