Singapore has joined the pile of countries going to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to demand a consultation with the US over its 30% solar import tariffs, according to a WTO filing from Friday 9 February.
In its filing, the Singapore delegation stated that it wanted to exchange views on the US safeguard measures and wants to hold the consultations as soon as possible, preferably with representatives of the US' investigating authorities.
The EU also requested a consultation with the US last week. Neither Singapore nor the EU have explicitly accused the US of breaking WTO rules.
Taiwan, South Korea and China had already taken similar steps through the WTO on the US PV tariffs. However, both South Korea and China have also explicitly mentioned a demand for compensation in their WTO filings.
