On August 25, 2009, Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (hereinafter referred to as the “Ministry of Commerce”) issued Announcement No 53 of 2009, deciding to continue to impose anti-dumping duties against imports of pyrocatechol originated in EU; i.e. such anti-dumping measures were extended for five years as of August 26, 2009 and will expire on August 25, 2014.
In accordance with the provisions of Article 48 of Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Anti-dumping, the period for levy of the anti-dumping duties and the period for fulfillment of price undertaking shall not exceed five years. However, the period for levy of the anti-dumping duties may be extended as appropriate if, as a result of the review, it is determined that the termination of the duties would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and injury.
As of the issuance of the Announcement, any natural person, legal person or relevant organization in or on behalf of the domestic industry may, at least 60 days prior to the expiration of such anti-dumping measures, apply for expiry review in written form to the Ministry of Commerce. The application shall include an express statement on request for expiry review, and sufficient evidence proving that the termination of the anti-dumping measures may cause the continuance or reoccurrence of dumping and injury.
If neither the natural person, legal person or relevant organization in or on behalf of the domestic industry applies for such review in accordance with the Announcement, nor the Ministry of Commerce actively initiates such expiry review before the expiration of such anti-dumping measures, the aforesaid anti-dumping measures will expire on August 26, 2014.
