Anti-dumping

On December 31, 2013, SolarWorld Industries America Inc. (the U.S. subsidiary of a German firm) filed petitions seeking the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China and Taiwan. With the Department of Commerce having determined that these products are sold in the United States at less than fair value and are subsidized by the government of China, and the U.S. International Trade Commission having reached a final affirmative injury determination on January 21, 2015, AD orders will be imposed on imports from both sources and a CVD order will be imposed on imports from China.

Anti-dumping

On February 8, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells and modules from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
