On October 19th, 2015, the Pakistani National Tariff Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of wire rod originating in China (Notice ADC No. 39/2015/NTC/WR).

The provisional measure was not imposed due to the already imposed regulatory duty of 30%, which entered into force on 21 March 2016. For more information on the regulatory duty, see related measure.
On 21 September 2017, the Pakistani National Tariff Commission terminated the antidumping investigation on imports of wire rod originating in China without the imposition of definitive duties.
