The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) announced recommendations that it will forward to the U.S. president in the ITC’s global safeguard investigation regarding imports of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells (whether or not partially or fully assembled into other products). The recommendations include a combination of quotas, duty rates (up to 35%) as well as the possibility of selling import licenses.
As noted in an ITC release, the determination reached was that crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells (whether or not partially or fully assembled into other products) are being imported into the United States “…in such increased quantities as to be a substantial cause of serious injury to the domestic industry producing an article like or directly competitive with the imported article.” The ITC will forward its report containing its injury determination, remedy recommendations, certain additional findings, and the basis for them, to the president by November 13, 2017. The report will be publicly released in December 2017.
