Minimum Import Price Group

SolarPower Europe operates an information dissemination service for members interested in the latest developments of the trade case between China and the European Union impacting solar cells and modules.

Since 2013 the import of solar modules and cells from China has been governed by the minimum import price (MIP). The Commission has proposed an extension of the trade measures until September 2018 and we are working to make sure the measures are removed no later than this date.

The Commission is also currently reviewing the MIP mechanism and is set to unveil a new system as of September 2017. This will govern the import of modules and cells from China into the EU until September 2018.

You can find more information about the cases here. 

Members interested in these issues can sign up to receive real time information on developments in the case. If you would like to receive emails on the MIP and associated topics please contact Kristina at k.thoring@solarpowereurope.org who can add you to the mailing list.
