AD/CV Petitions on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells from China
Petitioner: SolarWorld Industries America Inc.
Scope of Subject Merchandise: Petitioners identify the alleged dumped and subsidized product as crystaline silicon photovoltaic (CSPV) cells, whether or not individually or partially or fully assembled into other products, including, but not limited to, modules, laminates, panels and building integrated panels. The petition covers CSPV cells of thickness equal to or greater than 20 micrometers, having a heterogeneous, homogeneous or patterned p/n junction, heterojunction, metal-insulator-semiconductor junction or charge-induced junction. The junction may be formed by any means, including but not limited to dopan diffusion, ion implantation, epitaxial growth, or any other deposition or growth of semiconductors, insulators or metals, or bonding of dissimilar materials. The merchandise may be partially or fully processed.
CSPV cells are classified under HTSUS subheadings 8501.61.0000, 8507.20.80, 8541.40.6020 and 8541.40.6030.
Next Steps: The International Trade Commission and Department of Commerce follow strict statutory deadlines in antidumping and countervailing investigations. If your company is affected by this case it is important to act quickly to protect your interests.
