BEIJING -- China on Wednesday started to review anti-dumping measures it imposed on chloroprene rubber imported from a Japanese company, the Ministry of Commerce said.

The move came after the ministry received complaints that Japan Electric Chemical Co increased dumping activities and flouted the country's anti-dumping measures, according to a statement on the ministry's website.

China's domestic chloroprene rubber producers filed an application for a reexamination of anti-dumping measures against the Japanese company's products, the statement said.

In May 2005 the ministry imposed anti-dumping duties ranging from 2 percent to 151 percent on imported chloroprene rubber from Japan, the United States and the European Union with a term of 5 years.

In 2011, the ministry extended the anti-dumping duties for another five years.

Chloroprene rubber, commonly known as Neoprene, is mostly used in manufacturing electrical cables and other types of cables, as well as waterproof products.
