ADD determinations - Crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China, Taiwan 

July 28:  The U.S. Commerce Department announced its affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty (ADD) investigations of imports of certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products imported from Chian and Taiwan.

According to an ITA release [PDF 116 KB], Commerce preliminarily determined that certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China and Taiwan have been sold in the United States at dumping margins ranging from 26.33% to 165.04% for imports from China and 27.59% to 44.18% for imports from Taiwan.


As a result of the preliminary affirmative determinations, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require cash deposits based on these preliminary rates as adjusted for export and domestic subsidies found in the companion countervailing duty (CVD) investigation.

What’s next?

Commerce is scheduled to announce its final determinations on or about December 16, 2014.


If Commerce makes affirmative final determinations, and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) makes affirmative final determinations that imports of certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China and/or Taiwan materially injure, or threaten material injury to, the domestic industry, Commerce will issue AD orders.


The ITC will make its final injury determinations in January 2015.


If either Commerce’s or the ITC’s final determinations are negative, ADD orders will not be issued.
