China drops duties on EU polysilicon


October 31 (Solar) – China’s Ministry of Commerce (Mofcom) said today the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on solar-grade polysilicon imported from the EU will no longer be in force with effect from November 1, 2018.

The punitive measures were first introduced in May 2014, several months after the EU imposed anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on Chinese photovoltaic (PV) product imports to the bloc. In both cases the initial implementation period was two years, but in both cases the tariffs remained in place much longer after expiry reviews requested by affected parties on both sides.

Mofcom in March 2018 invited domestic polysilicon producers to apply for a new expiry review, but it received no such applications so the anti-dumping and countervailing measures will not be extended. From the start of September 2018, solar imports from China are no longer subject to duties in the EU, after the European Commission (EC) made a similar decision.
