BEIJING - China's Ministry of Commerce on Friday decided to launch an anti-dumping investigation on toluidine imported from the European Union starting Friday.
The investigation was initiated at the request of Jiangsu Huaihe Chemicals Co, Ltd, which filed an application on May 2 on behalf of Chinese toluidine producers, the ministry said in a statement posted on its website.
The ministry said the investigation would conclude before June 29, 2013, but it may be extended for another six months under special circumstances.
