Import duties confirmed on Chinese solar components

The European Commission yesterday announced the introduction of provisional duties on imports of wafers, solar cells and modules from Chinese companies on the EU market. The Commission will introduce tariffs in two phases, starting with a rate of 11, 8 per cent for the first two months and then continuing with a rate of 47.6 per cent for the next four months. According to information provided by the European Commission, the duties will serve to alleviate the damage caused by dumping on the industry European solar applied by Chinese groups. The rates will be valid for a period of 6 months starting from June 6 and will not have retroactive effect. The Commission pointed out that the duties are much lower than the 88 percent rate at which Chinese manufacturers have dumped on the European market. Although the Commission has recognized that the Chinese companies have actually put in place policies of dumping, it has also reiterated its commitment to maintaining a dialogue with companies and with the Chamber of Commerce in China, with the aim of finding an amicable solution to the dispute. The Commission itself, moreover, has also openly stated that the provisional duties "may be suspended," and that negotiated solutions can be found. The European Union is expected to issue a final judgment as to the duties by 5 December.
