On January 14th in case T‑507/13, the General Court rejected a challenge by European solar-panel producers to the price undertaking given by Chinese exporters wishing to be exempt from antidumping duties of up to 47.7%.
The court ruled that EU producers were not directly concerned by the acceptance of the undertaking and so had no standing to bring a challenge.
Duties as high as 64.9% were imposed in October 2013 on Chinese solar panels and photovoltaic cells.
In a separate development it is understood that EU producers have lodged a formal request with the European Commission asking for the level of the minimum price in the undertaking be reviewed so as to better reflect world prices. A decision on the request will be given in due course.
