SIMA – Final Determinations Respecting Certain Photovoltaic Modules and Laminates

On June 3, 2015, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made final determinations of dumping and subsidy pursuant to paragraph 41(1)(a) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), in respect of certain photovoltaic modules and laminates originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).

The goods in question are usually classified under the Harmonized System (HS) classification number 8541.40.00.22. Note that this HS code is for convenience of reference only. Refer to the product definition for authoritative details regarding the subject goods.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by July 3, 2015.

Provisional duties will continue to apply on imports of subject goods from China until the date of the CITT's order or finding.

Additional information about these investigations is contained in a Statement of Reasons, which will be available within 15 days on the CBSA’s Web site:

NOTE: The margins of dumping reported in the table above are the margins determined by the CBSA for purposes of the final determination of dumping. These margins do not reflect the amount of anti-dumping duty to be levied on future importations of dumped goods. In the event of an injury finding by the CITT, normal values and amounts of subsidy have been provided to the exporters which provided sufficient information for future shipments to Canada and these normal values and amounts of subsidy would come into effect the day after an injury finding. Information regarding normal values of the subject goods and amounts of subsidy should be obtained from the exporter. Imports from exporters that did not provide sufficient information to the CBSA during the dumping and subsidy investigations and who are not listed in the table above will be subject to the All Other Exporters anti-dumping duty rate of 154.4%, expressed as a percentage of the export price, and countervailing duty rate of 0.34 RMB per Watt, pursuant to a ministerial specification. Please consult the SIMA Self-Assessment Guide for more detailed information explaining how to determine the amount of SIMA duties owing.
