BEIJING, Jan. 22 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Commerce said Tuesday it has decided to impose anti-dumping duties on ortho dichlorobenzene (ODCB) imported from Japan and India as of Wednesday.
The domestic industry has been subject to substantial damages due to the dumping of these products, the ministry said in a final ruling after anti-dumping investigations into the imports.
From Wednesday, duties will be collected at rates ranging from 31.9 percent to 70.4 percent for a five-year period, the ministry said on its website.
After receiving complaints from the domestic industry, the ministry launched the anti-dumping investigations in January 2018, and a preliminary ruling was unveiled in October 2018.
ODCB can be used for producing chemical products that are widely used in making pesticides, medicine and dyes.
