Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on case briefs, rebuttal briefs, and all supporting documentation, we made changes from the Preliminary Results. For Heze, the Department has corrected the average useful life range from 9 to 10 years. The Department also found the Export Buyer’s Credit Program to be countervailable and applied an adverse inference in a postpreliminary decision memorandum.8 However, the Department has adjusted the adverse inference rate in these final results. Methodology The Department conducted this 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 find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.9 The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full description of the methodology underlying the Department’s conclusions, including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. Partial Rescission of Administrative Review As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department timely received a noshipment response from Kangtai. The Department stated its intention to rescind the review with respect to this company. The Department inquired with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) whether Kangtai had shipped merchandise to the United States during the POR, and CBP provided no evidence to contradict the claims of no shipments made by this company. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding the administrative review on Kangtai, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). 8 See Memorandum from Gary Taverman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations to Ronald Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ‘‘Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Chlorinated Isocyanurates from the People’s Republic of China: Post-Preliminary Results Decision Memorandum’’ (May 31, 2017). 9 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.

    The Department conducted this 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 find that there is a 
subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives 
rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is 
specific.\9\ The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full 
description of the methodology underlying the Department's conclusions, 
including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts 
available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.

    \9\ 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.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department timely received 
a no-shipment response from Kangtai. The Department stated its 
intention to rescind the review with respect to this company. The 
Department inquired with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
whether Kangtai had shipped merchandise to the United States during the 
POR, and CBP provided no evidence to contradict the claims of no 
shipments made by this company. Accordingly, the Department is 
rescinding the administrative review on Kangtai, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3).

Final Results of Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we determine the 
following net subsidy rates for the 2014 administrative review:
