India proposes a five-year safeguard tax on photovoltaic EVA film imported from China

According to the news released by the General Trade Department of India (DGTR) on February 21, it is recommended to impose a guaranteed tax on EVA film for PV modules imported from China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, and Thailand for a period of five years.

In fact, since April 2018, India has been investigating EVA films imported from China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Thailand. Later, it was discovered that only South Korea imported EVA raw materials, so South Korea was excluded. It is.

India’s DGTR believes that the purpose of the safeguards tax is to eliminate damage to Indian domestic industries caused by unfair trade practices such as dumping, and to re-establish an open and fair competition order in the Indian market. The implementation of the safeguards tax does not limit imports from any country, nor does it affect the supply of products to consumers.
