SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 7, 2012, the Department published the antidumping duty order on solar cells from the PRC.1 On June 26, 2014, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), the Department received a timely request for a new shipper review from Hengdian Group DMEGC Magnetics Co., Ltd. (‘‘DMEGC’’).2 On July 9, 2014, the Department received entry data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) related to DMEGC’s request for a new shipper review.3 We also requested entry documents from CBP in order to confirm certain information reported by DMEGC. The continuation of the new shipper review will be contingent upon confirmation of the information reported in the initiation request. DMEGC stated that it is the producer and exporter of the subject merchandise upon which its request for a new shipper review is based. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), DMEGC certified that it did not export solar cells to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’). In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), DMEGC certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any PRC exporter or producer who exported solar cells to the United States during the POI, including those not individually examined during the investigation.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:53 Jul 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 DMEGC also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC.4 In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), DMEGC submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped solar cells to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.5 The Department conducted a CBP database query and confirmed by examining the results that the sale of subject merchandise that DMEGC reported to the Department entered the United States during the POR specified by the Department’s regulations.6 Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(b), and based on the information on the record, the Department finds that DMEGC meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a new shipper review of its shipment(s) of solar cells from the PRC.7 However, if the information supplied by DMEGC is later found to be incorrect or insufficient during the course of this proceeding, the Department may rescind the review or apply facts available pursuant to section 776 of the Act, depending upon the facts on the record. The POR for the new shipper review of DMEGC is December 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014.8 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department will publish the notice of initiation of a new shipper review no later than the last day of the month following the anniversary or semiannual anniversary month of the order. The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this new shipper review no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the final results of this review no later than 90 days after the date the preliminary results are issued.9 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies (‘‘NME’’), to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate 4 See NSR Request, at Exhibit 1. 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). 7 See, generally, Memorandum to the File through Abdelali Elouaradia, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office IV ‘‘Initiation of Antidumping New Shipper Review of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, from the People’s Republic of China: Hengdian Group DMEGC Magnetics Co., Ltd., Initiation Checklist,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Initiation Checklist’’). 8 See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). 9 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. PO 00000 6 See Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 from the NME-wide entity rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to DMEGC which will include a separate rate section. The new shipper review of DMEGC will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that the exporter is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of solar cells. We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for certain entries of the subject merchandise from DMEGC in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because DMEGC exports and produces the subject merchandise, the sales of which form the basis of its new shipper review request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise which DMEGC exported and produced. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: July 18, 2014.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, Hubei 
Xingfa timely withdrew its request by the 90-day deadline, and no other 
party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. 
As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding the 
administrative review of sodium hexametaphosphate from the People's 
Republic of China for the period March 1, 2013, through February 28, 
2014, in its entirety.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries. Because the Department is rescinding this 
administrative review in its entirety, the entries subject to this 
administrative review shall be assessed antidumping duties at rates 
equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at 
the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to 
issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).
