U.S. Continues AD/CVD Investigation of PV Products from Four Southeast Asian Countries

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) has found "reasonable indications" of substantial injury to the domestic industry in a preliminary finding in an investigation of solar cells and modules imported into the United States from four Southeast Asian countries (Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam), the USITC said in a petition filed in May 2024 by the U.S. Solar Manufacturing Trade Council (AASMTC). The finding was in response to a May 2024 petition filed by the American Solar Manufacturing Trade Council (AASMTC). As a result, the United States Government has decided to continue investigating companies that ship cells and modules to the United States through the above-mentioned countries in order to avoid paying anti-dumping and countervailing duties (AD/CVD).

The USITC plans to issue a preliminary determination on countervailing on or about July 18, 2024, and a preliminary antidumping determination will be published on or about October 1, 2024.On July 5, 2024, the USITC will issue a report containing its views on the preliminary determinations as well as information gathered during the course of the investigation.

If evidence of damage is eventually found, the U.S. may retroactively impose anti-dumping/countervailing duties. This creates uncertainty for the U.S.-based industry, which could even freeze import operations until guilt is established, according to a LinkedIn post by Christian Roselund of the Clean Energy Association (CEA).
