The Ministry of Commerce (MOC) of China will review the current anti-dumping duties for imports of solar-grade polysilicon from South Korea following a call by domestic producers.
As officially announced on Tuesday, the review will cover the whole of 2015 to determine whether existing rates need adjustment. According to domestic producers, Korean polysilicon dumping has increased, MOC said.
At the start of 2014 China presented final anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties for five years on imports of the raw material from South Korea and the USA. The rates for the eastern neighbour were set at between 2.4% and 48.7%. Polysilicon imported from the European Union (EU) is also subject to duties.
