South Africa's International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) had begun enforcing anti-dumping duties ranging from over 14% to 77% on Portland cement made in or imported from Pakistan.

The duties will last for a period of five years if no review on the duty rates is made by the relevant South African authorities.

As such, anti-dumping duties of 63.53% and 68.87% will be imposed on cement produced by Pakistan-headquartered Attock Cement and DG Khan Cement respectively, while similar duties of 77.15% and 14.29% will be applied to cement made by Bestway Cement and Lucky Cement respectively.

Also, a 62.69% anti-dumping duty will be enforced on Portland cement manufactured by other companies operating in Pakistan. The new anti-dumping duty rates for Portland cement made in or imported from Pakistan became effective on 18 December 2015
