SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday that it will extend its antidumping and antisubsidy investigations on solar grade polysilicon imports from the EU by six months to 1 May 2014.

The extension was made because the case is “quite complicated and special”, according to the ministry.

China launched antidumping and antisubsidy probes on EU material on 1 November 2012 and was supposed to complete the investigations in one year.

The European Commission on 8 November 2012 initiated an antisubsidy investigation on imports of solar panels originating from China but has not imposed any provisional measures.

The Commission said in August that definite findings are due at the end of this year.
