CHINAi, begins one year expiry review anti-dumping measures on PVC

The decision is a result of requests for an expiry review from several local companies, who claimed that if the anti-dumping measures were terminated, the dumping behavior and injury to the PVC industry in China's mainland might reoccur. The companies asked that Mofcom maintain the anti-dumping measures.

The review began on 29 Sept. and will end before 28 Sept. 2015. It will investigate the likeliness of the continuation or recurrence of the dumping and injuries if the measures were terminated.
