Needs and Uses: This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has issued regulations under authority of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Convention Implementation Act (WCPFCIA; 16 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.) to carry out the obligations of the United States under the Convention on the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (Convention), including implementing the decisions of the Commission for the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (Commission). The regulations include a requirement for the owners and operators of U.S. vessels that fish for highly migratory species on the high seas in the Convention Area to carry and operate near real-time satellite-based position-fixing transmitters (‘‘VMS units’’) at all times except when the vessel is in port. As part of this requirement, vessel owners and operators must transmit: (1) ‘‘on/off reports’’ to NMFS whenever the VMS unit is turned off while the vessel is in port, (2) ‘‘activation reports’’ to NMFS prior to the first use of a VMS unit, and (3) automatic ‘‘position reports’’ from the VMS unit to NOAA and the Commission as part of a vessel monitoring system (VMS) operated by the Commission (50 CFR 300.45). Under this information collection, it is expected that vessel owners and operators would also need to purchase, install, and occasionally maintain the VMS units. The information collected from the vessel position reports is used by NOAA and the Commission to help ensure compliance with domestic laws and the Commission’s conservation and management measures, and are necessary in order to the United Stated to satisfy its obligations under the Convention.

of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2013; and Partial 
Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting the 
second administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on 
crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into 
modules (solar cells), from the People's Republic of China (PRC). The 
period of review (POR) is January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013. 
We preliminarily determine that JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co., Ltd. 
and its cross-owned affiliates, including JingAo Solar Co., Ltd. and 
Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co., Ltd., (collectively, JA Solar) 
received countervailable subsidies during the POR. Interested parties 
are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective date: January 8, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cynthia Baker or Gene Calvert, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade

6251, and (202) 482-3586, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the CVD order is crystalline silicon 
photovoltaic cells, and modules, laminates, and panels, consisting of 
crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not partially or 
fully assembled into other products, including, but not limited to, 
modules, laminates, panels, and building integrated materials. A full 
description of the scope of the order is contained in the Department 
memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Crystalline Silicon 
Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, from the 
People's Republic of China; 2013,'' dated concurrently with this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum) and hereby adopted by this notice.
    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on 
file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and 
in the Central Records Unit, located in Room B8024 of the main 
Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://www.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act). For each of the subsidy programs found 
countervailable, we preliminarily find that there is a subsidy, (i.e., 
a financial contribution from an authority that

[[Page 909]]

gives rise to a benefit to the recipient) and that the subsidy is 
specific.\1\ For a full description of the methodology underlying all 
of the Department's conclusions, including our reliance, in part, on 
adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, 
see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum 
is provided at Appendix I to this notice.

Partial 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 parties that 
requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation. For those companies named in 
the Initiation Notice \2\ for which all review requests were timely 
withdrawn, we are rescinding this administrative review in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). These companies are listed at Appendix II to 
this notice. For these companies, countervailing duties shall be 
assessed at rates equal to the rates of cash deposits for estimated 
countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2013, through 
December 31, 2013, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 6041 (February 4, 2015) (Initiation 
Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Companies Not Selected for Individual Review

    There are two companies for which a review was requested and not 
rescinded, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents: 
Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd. (Trina Solar) and Wuxi Suntech 
Power Co., Ltd. (Suntech).\3\ Because JA Solar is the sole mandatory 
respondent, we assigned to Trina Solar and Suntech, the rate calculated 
for JA Solar.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ We note that untimely requests for withdrawal of review were 
also submitted on behalf of Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co., Ltd., 
and JingAo Solar Co., Ltd. However, we have preliminarily determined 
that these companies are cross-owned with the mandatory respondent, 
JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co., Ltd., under 19 CFR 
351.525(b)(6)(vi), and are, thereby, subject to the review. See 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act, we intend to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of our analysis of issues raised in any 
written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication 
of this notice.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
countervailing duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Instructions

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the Department also 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties, in the amounts shown above for each of the 
respective companies shown above, on shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication of the final results of this review. For all non-
reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash 
deposits at the most-recent company-specific or all others rate 
applicable to the company, as appropriate. These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.
