Anti-dumping

On 1 November 2012, the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) of the People's Republic of China initiated an anti-dumping investigation on solar-grade polysilicon from the EU.
The HS code in question is 2804.6190.

On 17 September 2012, on behalf of the Chinese domestic industry, four domestic Chinese companies formally submitted an application for the initiation of this anti-dumping investigation to the MOFCOM.
On 30 April, 2014, the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) of the People's Republic of China released the Notice NO.25 (2014), announcing the final determination of antidumping duties on Solar Grade Polysilicon (HS NO. 28046190 ) originating from the EU. The duty rate ranges from 14.3 to 42 percent. This measure will remain in effect for 2 years from 1 May, 2014.
 
On 1 May 2016, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the above good from the European Union (MOFCOM Announcement No. 16 of 2016). It follows the application lodged on 29 February 2016 by Jiangsu Zhongneng Polysilicon Technology Development Co. Ltd., Jiangxi LDK PV Silicon Technology Co., Ltd., China Silicon Corporation Ltd. and Chongqing Daqo New Energy Co., Ltd. on behalf of the industry of the subject good. The existing anti-dumping duty remains in force during the review period.

On 1 May 2017, the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China extended the antidumping duty on imports of the subject good from the European Union for a period of 18 months following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The rate of duty imposed on imports of the subject good remains at the same level as imposed by Announcement No. 25 of 2014.
