China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC)announced Wednesday it is to review the anti-dumping measures imposed five years ago on trichloroethylene (TCE) imported from Russia and Japan.

The MOC would also examine the possibility of a recurrence or continuity of dumping actions and damages if the anti-dumping measures came to an end, said a statement on the MOC website.

China began to levy tariffs on TCE imported from Russia and Japan on July 22, 2005, after finding the imports damaged the domestic industry.

China required TCE exporters in Russia and Japan to pay a 159-percent anti-dumping tax, except for Russia-based Usoliekhimprom LLC, which was given a 3-percent anti-dumping tax, said the statement.

The examination would begin on July 22 in response to applications by China's domestic TEC producers on May 21 and the review normally would conclude within 12 months, it said.

Trichloroethylene is widely used as cleaning agent in the production of home electronic appliances.
