China has started reviewing the anti-dumping measures it imposed in 2006 on catechol imported from Japan and the United States, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Wednesday.

The MOC will examine the possibility of continuing the anti-dumping measures and evaluate any possible damage that might result if the measures are discontinued, according to a statement on the MOC's website.

The Lianyungang Sanjili Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. filed an application for the re-examination of the measures on March 21 on behalf of China's catechol producers, the statement said, adding that the review should be completed before May 22, 2012.

China slapped a five-year anti-dumping duty of 4 percent to 46.81 percent on catechol imports from the United States and Japan on May 22, 2006.

Catechol is a chemical material that can be used as an antiseptic or photographic developer.
