U.S. to continue AD, CVD probes against Chinese PV products


14:25, December 03, 2011

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2 (Xinhua) -- A U.S. federal trade panel determined Friday that the U.S. solar industry was materially injured by imports of solar cells from China.

All the six commissioners of the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) voted in the affirmative in the case, which was filed by a group of U.S. photovoltaic (PV) companies.

These companies alleged that Chinese PV products were subsidized by the Chinese government and sold in the U.S. market at less than fair value.

The USITC's move cleared the way for the U.S. Commerce Department to continue anti-dumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations on imports of crystalline silicon PV cells and modules from China.

The department initiated AD and CVD investigations of imports of solar cells from China on Nov. 8 and intended to impose duties of up to 249.96 percent.

The U.S. government is expected to make its preliminary CVD determination and preliminary AD duty determination respectively in January and March next year.
