Chinese solar companies will be "entirely blocked" from the United States market if that nation's government imposes new duties on solar cell products made in the Chinese mainland and Taiwan, experts have warned. The US solar panel producer SolarWorld Industries America Inc petitioned the Department of Commerce and the US International Trade Commission before the end of last month, requesting that the agencies launch anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations against crystalline silicon photovoltaic products made in the mainland and Taiwan.
SolarWorld said the petition was meant to "close a loophole in trade remedies issued a year ago". Based on a final US ruling inanti-subsidy and anti-dumping duties were applied to panels using solar cells made in the mainland. As a result, many companies tried to avoid the duties by assembling panels from cells produced elsewhere, especially Taiwan.
According to Sun, about 70 percent of the companies that export to the US market are now using Taiwan-manufactured solar cells. I do not think it clever to continue the mistake by keeping blocking competition from China with even harsher charges.
Solar cell manufacturing in Taiwan is more integrated and focused, with four major players, said Ren Haoning, an energy analyst with China Investment Consulting. And it is natural for mainland module manufacturers to purchase Taiwan-made cells," he added.
SEIA President Rhone Resch said the organization opposed the escalation of the US-China solar trade conflict, saying that more litigation was the wrong approach and a blunt instrument incapable of resolving the complex competitiveness issues that exist between the US and Chinese solar industries. After going through trade disputes in the US and European Union markets, Chinese solar companies seem more prepared this time.
And most importantly, after going through the toughest conditions in the past two years, many of the survivors are returning to profitability," said Tony Liu, who manages a midsized original equipment manufacturer in Shanghai that focuses on solar panels.
Chinese solar exports to the US have fallen significantly since latewhen Washington approved anti-dumping and anti-subsidy tariffs on solar modules made of mainland-produced solar cells. More than Chinese companies have borne duties of about 31 percent since that ruling. Some pay duties exceeding percent. Shipments to what was once the Chinese industry's second-largest export destination have fallen in half to about 10 percent.
They may fall even further if new tariffs are imposed, analysts said. And as China promotes renewable energy to combat air pollution and continuously raises the target for solar capacity, more companies are shifting emphasis to the domestic market.
Chen Huiqing, deputy director of the legal department of the China Chamber of Commerce of Machinery and Electronic Products, said the chamber has been holding meetings and organizing lawyers to handle the latest petition in the US. But it's not time to make any public statement, since the US authorities haven't said whether they'll start an investigation, she added.

Guidance for the pharmaceutical industry on who can be a Marketing Authorisation Holder, named distributor, or local representative of veterinary medicines. The term Marketing Authorisation Holder includes holders of veterinary homeopathic registrations and veterinary medicinal products include veterinary homeopathic remedies.
A veterinary medicinal product may not be placed on the UK market unless it is subject of a valid marketing authorisation MA in the UK. The holder of the MA is responsible for the marketing of the product. The designation of a representative, eg. An applicant will need to demonstrate that it can meet the obligations of an MAH during the application process and before an MA is granted. Failure to provide the necessary information may result in your application being failed at validation.
A person wishing to be an MAH must be an EU resident and provide proof of residency when applying for a marketing authorisation. Charities wishing to be an MAH must provide proof that they are a registered charity with an EU address. We will accept a letter on company headed paper showing the address and registered charity number or EU equivalent as proof of establishment. For mutually recognised products, the variation only needs to be submitted to the RMS and CMS s affected by the change.
The procedure for making this change can differ between member states. Guidance on how each member state deals with this type of change is available on the HMA website under Guidance for marketing authorisation transfer — national requirements. Following initial authorisation of a mutually recognised product, the MAH may change in some member states resulting in more than one MAH being responsible for the same authorisation.
For further information see Guidance on post-authorisation activities after partial marketing authorisation transfer — partial MAH transfer.
A distributor may supply veterinary medicines wholesale, or be in possession of them for that purpose. The MAH is responsible for the marketing of the product. There may be more than one named distributor on an MA, but the details of the product including its name and Vm number remain the same regardless of who is distributing the product. The only difference on the labels will be the name and address of the named distributor and, possibly, the livery in which it is distributed in.
Note - if the name and address of a proposed named distributor is not provided with an application for a new MA, it will be assumed that the MAH is the distributor. If the MAH is also the distributor, and the MAH details change, you do not need to submit a separate variation to change the distributor; however, if the distributor is no longer going to be the same as the MAHyou must state this in your application.
Local representatives and named distributors perform different roles, although a single company may perform both roles for a specific MA. If you intend to include the name and address of a named distributor based outside of the UK on your labels, we strongly encourage you to also include the details of a local representative.
This is not a legislative requirement, but it is VMD policy and good practice to include a UK contact on the labels, so that users are able to contact someone easily to discuss any problems or concerns with the product.
The local representative may be indicated by name, telephone number and e-mail address optional only. Postal address may be added space permitting. To add or delete a local representative, or change the details of an existing local representative, you need to submit a Type IA variation category C.
You must submit a variation to make changes to a MAHnamed distributor or local representative details. Further information about how to apply for a variation can be found on Apply to change a marketing authorisation for an animal medicine. Details about timetables can be found on the Timetables for national applications page.The Exporters Development Programme is aimed at assisting local companies to start exporting.
The programme aims to address the key constraints that companies face before entering the export market. In the recently commissioned EC Export Strategy, constraints faced by exporters in the province include:. The Exporters Development Programme is designed to assist companies with such challenges. The programme targets those firms that are on the cusp of exporting, but require some additional incentive or support to enter and explore new markets.
When it comes to exporting manufacturing products from the province by districts and metropolitan areas, the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro is a major exporter of manufacturing products from the province. Inthe Nelson Mandela Bay Metro accounted for The Nelson Mandela Bay Metro is the most competitive metropole in the Eastern Cape when it comes to manufacturing exports, with transport equipment - motor vehicle parts and accessories - contributing The companies that will form part of the programme will come from different regions in the province.
An allocation of R has been made towards the programme. The emphasis of this Programme will then be to provide extensive, targeted and high-quality support to these identified companies, rather than to dilute the assistance provided by the ECDC across a larger number of more varied participants.

The military had promoted or moved them from their operational roles to instructor, staff, or command jobs. In the future, they would no longer lead people into combat.
He didn't have to think long. Starting a business, Niebauer says, is the closest civilian proxy he can imagine to a life in Special Forces. Serving in the Green Berets "was a very entrepreneurial experience from the standpoint of they give you some resources and general guidance, but it is really up to you to make what you want out of it," says Niebauer.
And I loved that. Fort Braggthe world's largest military base by population, covers more than square miles in central North Carolina. It is home base for U. Those entrepreneurs say the skill sets they developed working largely on their own, in unfamiliar terrain, and under fraught circumstances serve them well as small-business owners. Mike Birky got the idea for his business while serving overseas. A member of the 1st Special Forces Group, he was deployed chiefly in Asia to train host nations' soldiers and help build clinics, among other projects.
Understanding local cultures is critical for Special Forces, who must win hearts and minds of civil authorities and civilian populations. As part of that acculturation, Birky visited agricultural areas, including coffee farms, in places like East Timor and Sumatra. He observed workers handpicking, drying, and roasting the beans, and got to sample the fragrant product.
You wanted more of it. Drowning Creek exemplifies what distinguishes Special Forces, Birky says. Conventional troops will typically navigate the course in groups of five or Special Forces troops, by contrast, are taught to do it on their own. Birky himself now works alone: He soon bought out both partners.
Over the years, he has expanded the business, increasing the yield from 20 or 30 pounds of coffee a day to as many as 1, The company donates about 1, pounds a year to soldiers overseas. Cactus Creek now employs 11 people and owns 12, square feet of manufacturing and storage space, a number it intends to double in the next few years. Birky credits strategic planning skills he learned in Special Forces for much of that growth.
Another thing Birky took from his service is what he calls a win-win mentality. Most Special Forces soldiers are Type A personalities, he says. Their inclination is to go in with a hard-charging let's-get-this-done timeline. But local forces, operating under different cultures and expectations, might not appreciate that approach. In his experience, Special Forces sometimes had to shift their schedules and train much longer into the day or night to accomplish their mission.

But co-founder Mark Carey's military career resembles one. Over close to 22 years--most of it in Special Forces--Carey was, among other things, a medic, a Thai linguist, a procurement adviser, and commandant of Fort Bragg's sniper school. A bad experience working for a defense contractor disposed him toward entrepreneurship. Inhe partnered with Curtis Iovito, a Special Forces friend he'd met in a counterterrorism unit in Japan, to start a business.
Carey and Iovito created three business plans--for a firearms company, a firearms accessory company, and a knife company--and multiple variations on each. They then spent about a year researching all their options.In a similar mould to FinTech, which is short for financial technologies, RegTech regulatory technologyhas grown to become one of the most talked about innovations within the financial services sector.
As banks and other financial institutions grapple with the costs and complexities of mission-critical regulatory requirements, RegTech is now regarded as one of the largest and most important sectors within the FinTech space. RegTech companies not only help clients to be compliant with stringent new rules, however. They can also benefit companies in terms of time and resource efficiency and cost-saving, by way of innovations such as automation. They incorporate the latest technologies, such as big data analytics, Blockchain, artificial intelligence, the internet of things, machine learning and natural learning processing.
RegTechs generally work in collaboration with financial institutions and regulatory bodies, utilising low-cost emerging cloud computing and big data for sharing of information.
A bank that receives huge amounts of data may find it too complex, expensive, and time consuming to comb through. To celebrate companies and start-ups which are doing the best job in Regtech, FinTech Global, a London based FinTech publication, published the RegTech list of the most innovative in the RegTech space.
After a long process, a panel of experts with the Global Fintech Review assessed a group of candidates from across the world and chose the top The selected companies were recognised and commended for their innovative use of technology to generate efficiencies and performance enhancements across the compliance function within financial institutions, which spend tens of billions of dollars on the area each year.
An analysis of the top shows that RegTech leadership is closely tied to the most dominant financial markets. Ireland, Switzerland and Australia, which claim 21 companies between them on the RegTechhave already established themselves as RegTech hotspots. Other countries, large and small, are just beginning to make their mark in the industry: Brazil, Bermuda, South Africa, Cyprus, India and the United Arab Emirates are all represented on the list.

This list does not include third party elevator companies or commonly referred as generic elevator companies. For the list of these companies, refer to this page.
These are some other historic or small elevator and escalator companies. The table below contains three sub sections to distinguish between existing companies, non-existing companies, and companies whose fate remains unknown today; companies that are still in business are listed under the "Operating" section colored greencompanies that have ceased out or no longer in business are listed under the "Defunct" section colored redand companies whose fate remains unknown are listed under the "Fate unknown" section colored grey.
These are some elevator companies which are owned by a major elevator company or other corporations, or just elevator and escalator divisions belongs to another corporation. Some of them were founded after a major elevator company had a joint venture with a local elevator company. Chevalier has a long partnership with Toshiba. The reason for the acquisition, in most cases, is either because the company wanted to enter a particular elevator market or wanted to expand their business or presence to a particular country.
