ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On May 28th, 2015, the European Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of solar panels (crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules and key components) from Chinese Taipei and Malaysia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/832).
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive countervailing duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1239/2013 dated December 2nd, 2013 on imports of solar panels from China might be circumvented (see measure 5807).
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS codes: ex 8501.3100, ex 8501.3200, ex 8501.3300, ex 8501.3400, ex 8501.6120, ex 8501.6180, ex 8501.6200, ex 8501.6300, ex 8501.6400 and ex 8541.4090.
The complaint was lodged on April 15th, 2015 by SolarWorld AG, an EU producer of the subject good.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/832 also makes imports of solar panels from Chinese Taipei and Malaysia subject to registration for a period of nine months.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/832 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 132) on May 29th, 2015.
On 13 February 2016, the European Commission decided upon the extension of the countervailing measure imposed on imports of solar panels (crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules and key components) in China to imports of the same products originating in Chinese Taipei and Malaysia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2016/184). The rate of the duty is 11.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price.
On 4 March 2017, the European Commission extended the definitive countervailing duty on imports of subject good from China following the conclusion of the above sunset review, see related measure. The conclusions of this sunset review is additionally extended to imports of the same products originating from Chinese Taipei and Malaysia. The rate of duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Malaysia and Chinese Taipei is 11.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. The duty is in force for a period of 18 months.
