On June 6, 2013, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of acetone from South Korea. The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2914.1100.
