China to keep halogenated rubber anti-dumping duty until probe is over

BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s commerce ministry said on Wednesday it will continue to impose anti-dumping duties on imports of halogenated rubber originating in the United States, the European Union and Singapore from Sunday.

The tariffs will remain in place until the conclusion of a final anti-dumping investigation into the rubber that is scheduled to end on Aug. 20, 2024, the ministry said in an announcement posted on its website.

The tariff rate on rubber imported from the United States will remain at 75.5%, from the EU at 27.4%-71.9%, and from Singapore at 23.1%-45.2%, it said.
