On October 31, 2017, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) announced the remedy recommendations that it will forward to the President in its global safeguard investigation regarding imports of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells (whether or not partially or fully assembled into other products) [Inv. TA-201-075].

On September 22, 2017, the Commission determined that crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells (whether or not partially or fully assembled into other products) are being imported into the United States in such increased quantities as to be a substantial cause of serious injury to the domestic industry producing an article like or directly competitive with the imported article.

The Commissioners released statements regarding their remedy recommendations. However, full details on their recommendations will be included in the report to the President, which will contain its injury determination, remedy recommendations, certain additional findings, and the basis for them, to the President by November 13, 2017.

The President, not the Commission, will make the final decision whether to provide relief to the U.S. industry and the type and amount of relief.

The Commission’s public report to the President Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells (Whether or Not Partially or Fully Assembled into Other Products), Inv. No. TA-201-075, USITC Publication 4739, November 2017, will be available by December 4, 2017.
