The U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) found that U.S. producers are being seriously injured or are threatened with serious injury by imports of silicon photovoltaic cells and modules. The case now moves quickly to the remedy phase at the ITC. Prehearing briefs on remedy must be filed by the parties by September 27, a hearing on remedy will be held on October 3, and post-hearing briefs will be filed on October 10. The ITC is scheduled to vote on remedy on October 31 and will send it recommendations to the President by November 13. The President then will have 60 days to accept or modify the recommendations of the ITC.
