The Japanese Ministry of Finance (MOF) published a report issued by the Council on Customs, Tariff, Foreign Exchange and other Transactions stating that it would be appropriate to impose a 30.8% anti-dumping duty on dipotassium carbonate originating in South Korea. On March 19, the Suga Cabinet approved a cabinet ordinance imposing a provisional anti-dumping duty. A 30.8% anti-dumping duty will be levied in addition to the 3.9% WTO tariff rate for four months — from the day following the publication of the cabinet ordinance on March 24 (from March 25) until July 24.

In 2019, Japan imported a total of 6,565 tons of dipotassium carbonate, of which South Korea accounted for 80.5% (5,293 tons). Sales by domestic producers AGC Inc. and Nippon Soda Co., Ltd. dropped 16% from 2018 to 2019. As a result, an industry group formed by the two companies applied for the imposition of an anti-dumping duty on April 30, 2020. The MOF and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) initiated an investigation in response on June 29, 2020.
