BEIJING - The Ministry of Commerce said Friday that it has started reviewing anti-dumping measures on sulfamethoxazole, an antibiotic imported from India.

The review will evaluate the possibilities for dumping and damages if the tariffs are lifted, the ministry said in a statement on its website.

The review started Friday at the request of applications submitted by domestic industry players on March 30, 2012, and will be finished within 12 months, according to the statement.

The ministry slapped five-year anti-dumping duties ranging from 10.1 percent to 37.7 percent on sulfamethoxazole imports from India on June 15, 2007, after finding that the imports hurt the interests of domestic producers.

During the review period, China will continue to impose anti-dumping duties on SMZ imports from India, according to the statement.
