CITT initiates preliminary injury inquiry on photovoltaic modules and laminates from China

On December 8, 2014, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) advised that they are initiating a preliminary injury inquiry to determine whether the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of photovoltaic modules and laminates originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China have caused injury or retardation or are threatening to cause injury.

The subject goods are described as photovoltaic modules and laminates consisting of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, including laminates shipped or packaged with other components of photovoltaic modules, and thin film photovoltaic products produced from amorphous silicon (a-Si), cadmium telluride (CdTe), or copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS).

Any firm wishing to participate in the preliminary injury inquiry must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal no later than December 22, 2014. The notice of participation should be sent to:
