See ‘‘Amendment to the PRC CVD Final Determination’’ section below for further discussion. On April 28, 2016, the ITC notified the Department of its final determinations pursuant to sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of subsidized imports of PET resin from India and the PRC, and its determination that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from India 3 that are subject to the Department’s affirmative critical circumstances finding, in part.4 Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders is polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin having an intrinsic viscosity of at least 0.70, but not more than 0.88, deciliters per gram. The scope includes blends of virgin PET resin and recycled PET resin containing 50 percent or more virgin PET resin content by weight, provided such blends meet the intrinsic viscosity requirements above. The scope includes all PET resin meeting the above specifications regardless of additives introduced in the manufacturing process. The merchandise subject to these orders is properly classified under subheading 3907.60.00.30 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these orders is dispositive. Amendment to the PRC Final Determination As discussed above, after analyzing the comments received, we determined, in accordance with section 705(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in certain calculations for the PRC Final Determination, with respect to Xingyu. This amended final CVD determination corrects these errors and revises the ad valorem subsidy rate for Xingyu.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 14, 2016, the Department published its final 
determinations in the countervailing duty investigations of PET resin 
from India and the PRC.\1\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 14, 2016, the Department received a timely allegation from 
DAK Americas, LLC, M&G Chemicals, and Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, 
America (Petitioners), that the Department made ministerial errors in 
the final determination in the CVD investigation of PET resin from the 
PRC.\2\ The Department analyzed Petitioners' comments and determined 
that ministerial errors exist, as defined by section 705(e) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.224(f). See ``Amendment to the PRC CVD Final 
Determination'' section below for further discussion.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Letter from Petitioners, ``Investigation of Certain 
Polyethylene Terephthalate Resin from the People's Republic of 
China--Petitioners' Ministerial Error Comments,'' dated March 14, 
2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On April 28, 2016, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determinations pursuant to sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), that an industry in the United 
States is materially injured by reason of subsidized imports of PET 
resin from India and the PRC, and its determination that critical 
circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject 
merchandise from India \3\ that are subject to the Department's 
affirmative critical circumstances finding, in part.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ No critical circumstances were alleged with respect to 
imports of subject merchandise from China.
    \4\ See ITC Notification Letter to the Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, referencing ITC 
Investigation Nos. 701-TA-531-532 and 731-TA-1270-1273 (April 28, 
2016) (ITC Notification).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is polyethylene 
terephthalate (PET) resin having an intrinsic viscosity of at least 
0.70, but not more than 0.88, deciliters per gram. The scope includes 
blends of virgin PET resin and recycled PET resin containing 50 percent 
or more virgin PET resin content by weight, provided such blends meet 
the intrinsic viscosity requirements above. The scope includes all PET 
resin meeting the above specifications regardless of additives 
introduced in the manufacturing process.
    The merchandise subject to these orders is properly classified 
under subheading 3907.60.00.30 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of these orders is dispositive.

Amendment to the PRC Final Determination

    As discussed above, after analyzing the comments received, we 
determined, in accordance with section 705(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in certain calculations for 
the PRC Final Determination, with respect to Xingyu. This amended final 
CVD determination corrects these errors and revises the ad valorem 
subsidy rate for Xingyu. The amended ad valorem subsidy rate for Xingyu 
is 7.53 percent. The ad valorem subsidy rate for Xingyu was used to 
calculate the subsidy rate for all-other producers/exporters from the 
PRC, and, as such, the amended ad valorem subsidy rate for all-other 
producers/exporters in the PRC is 27.55 percent.\5\

Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations,

Countervailing Duty Orders

    In accordance with sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the Act, 
the ITC has notified the Department of its final determinations that 
the industry in the United States producing PET resin is materially 
injured by reason of subsidized imports of PET resin from India and the 
PRC, and that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to 
imports of subject merchandise from India that are subject to the 
Department's affirmative critical circumstances finding, in part. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 705(c)(2) of the Act, we are 
publishing these countervailing duty orders.
    As a result of the ITC's final determinations, in accordance with 
section 706(a) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the 
Department, countervailing duties on unliquidated entries of PET resin 
from India and the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after August 14, 2015, the date on which the 
Department published its preliminary countervailing duty determinations 
in the Federal Register,\6\ and before December 12, 2015, the effective 
date on which the Department instructed CBP to discontinue the 
suspension of liquidation in accordance with section 703(d) of the Act. 
Section 703(d) of the Act states that the suspension of liquidation 
pursuant to a preliminary determination may not remain in effect for 
more than four months. Therefore, entries of PET resin made on or after 
December 12, 2015, and prior to the date of publication of the ITC's 
final

[[Page 27979]]

determination in the Federal Register are not liable for the assessment 
of countervailing duties due to the Department's discontinuation, 
effective December 12, 2015, of the suspension of liquidation.
