PV Magazine will host a webinar titled "How US solar companies can manage their supply chain risk following a Customs WRO on Hoshine."

In late June, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection placed a Withhold Release Order (WRO) on products containing material from China’s largest metallurgical-grade silicon (mg-Si) manufacturer and the main provider of all major polysilicon producers based in the region: Hoshine Silicon Industry Co. The WRO means any importer that cannot prove to Customs their solar panels do not contain mg-Si from Hoshine can have their shipment excluded from entry into the U.S. Due to the tangled and blended nature of solar supply chains, almost no supplier today is equipped to prove this level of provenance.

ST&R's Elise Shibles is a panelist for this webinar. Registration is open to the public and free of charge. Learn more and register here.
