On August 22, 2014, the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of Portland cement from Pakistan (Notice No. 675 of 2014, 22.08.2014).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 2523.29.
