The United States has notified the World Trade Organization that it is considering imposing emergency tariffs on imported solar cells.

The tariffs would apply only to crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not they are partially or fully assembled into other products, and would apply to imports from any country.

The U.S. International Trade Commission will make a determination on the safeguard investigation, initiated on behalf of U.S. solar panel manufacturer Suniva, by Sept. 22. If it decides to impose tariffs, the ITC will deliver its proposal to the president by Nov. 13
