SUMMARY: On December 22, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the third administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (solar cells) from the People’s AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 29034 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 122 / Tuesday, June 27, 2017 / Notices Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2014, through November 30, 2015. The review covers two mandatory respondents: (1) Canadian Solar International Limited, which we have treated as a single entity with five affiliated companies identified below, and (2) the collapsed entity Trina Solar, consisting of Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd., and Trina Solar (Changzhou) Science and Technology Co., Ltd., which we have continued to treat as a single entity with four additional affiliated companies identified below. We received comments from interested parties on our Preliminary Results. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to the margin calculations for the Final Results of this administrative review. The final weighted-average dumping margins are listed below in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice. DATES: Effective June 27, 2017.

However, we have reexamined the record and determined that we made an error in the Preliminary Results by not recognizing that Shenzhen Glory Industries Co., Ltd. (Shenzhen Glory) timely filed a noshipment certification.9 We have reviewed Shenzhen Glory’s no shipment certification and have found that Shenzhen Glory had no shipments during this POR. In addition, we found that Hangzhou Sunny Energy Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (Sunny), a company we preliminarily determined had no shipments during the POR, had a reviewable sale/entry of subject merchandise during the POR. Therefore, for these Final Results, we find that a total of seven companies had no shipments during the POR.10 As noted 5 In these final results of review, the Department has continued to treat the following six companies as a single entity: Canadian Solar International Limited/Canadian Solar Manufacturing (Changshu), Inc./Canadian Solar Manufacturing (Luoyang), Inc./ CSI Cells Co., Ltd./CSI–GCL Solar Manufacturing (YanCheng) Co., Ltd./CSI Solar Power (China) Inc. (collectively, Canadian Solar). See Preliminary Results, 81 FR at 93888, 93889 and PDM at 6 7. 6 In these final results of review, the Department has continued to treat the following six companies as a single entity: Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd./Trina Solar (Changzhou) Science & Technology Co., Ltd./Yancheng Trina Solar Energy Technology Co., Ltd./Changzhou Trina Solar Yabang Energy Co., Ltd./Turpan Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd./Hubei Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd. (collectively, Trina). See Preliminary Results, 81 FR at 93888, 93889 and PDM at 6–7. 7 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at comments 4, 7, 8, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, and 24. 8 See Preliminary Results, 81 FR at 93888, 93889. 9 See Shenzhen Glory’s February 24, 2016 Notice of No Sales Letter. 10 Those companies are: BYD (Shangluo) Industrial Co., Ltd., Canadian Solar Inc., Dongguan Sunworth Solar Energy Co., Ltd., Jiangsu High Hope Int’l Group, Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd/Luoyang Suntech Power Co., Ltd., Zhongli Talesun Solar Co. Ltd, and Shenzhen Glory. On January 6, 2017, the Department placed on the record certain factual information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regarding the no shipments claims and provided interested parties with an opportunity to comment on the information. See Department Letter re: Release of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Information Relating to No Shipment Claims Made in the 2014–2015 Administrative Review of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells from the People’s Republic of China, dated January 6, 2017. Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. commented on the information, arguing that none of the new information on the record contradicts the Department’s preliminary decision regarding its no shipment claim. No other parties commented on the information. See Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd.’s January 13, 2017 Comments on CBP Information. E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 122 / Tuesday, June 27, 2017 / Notices in the ‘‘Assessment’’ section below, the Department will issue appropriate instructions with respect to these companies to CBP based on our Final Results.11 In addition, these companies will maintain their rate from the most recent segment in which they participated. Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Canadian Solar, Trina, and 24 other companies/ company groups demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates, but that Jiangsu Sunlink PV Technology Co., Ltd., Ningbo Hisheen Electrical Co., Ltd., and Shenzhen Glory had not demonstrated their entitlement to separate rates status because they did not file either a separate rate application or certification with the Department.12 However, as noted above, for these Final Results, the Department has determined that Shenzhen Glory timely filed a no shipments claim and record information supports its claim. Additionally, as explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, the Department has determined that Sunny is eligible for separate rate status, but that Ningbo Qixin Solar Electrical Appliance Co., Ltd. (Ningbo Qixin) did not meet the requirements for obtaining a separate rate. Therefore, for these Final Results, 29035 the Department finds that Jiangsu Sunlink PV Technology Co., Ltd., Ningbo Hisheen Electrical Co., Ltd., and Ningbo Qixin are not eligible for separate rate status and thus, are part of the PRC-wide entity. The Department assigned a dumping margin to the separate rate companies that it did not individually examine, but which demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate, based on the mandatory respondents’ dumping margins.13 Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR: Weighted-average dumping margins (percent) Exporter Canadian Solar International Limited/Canadian Solar Manufacturing (Changshu), Inc./Canadian Solar Manufacturing (Luoyang)Inc./CSI Cells Co., Ltd./CSI–GCL Solar Manufacturing (YanCheng) Co., Ltd./CSI Solar Power (China) Inc ........

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-)specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate importer- (or customer)-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, the Department calculated importer- (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to the importer- (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to the importer- (or customer).16 Where the Department calculated an importer- (or customer)-specific weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to the importer- (or customer) by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will direct CBP to assess importer- (or customer)-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.17 Where an importer- (or customer)specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation. Where either the respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.18 For merchandise whose sale/entry was not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter’s cash deposit rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate.

Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) is December 1, 
2014, through November 30, 2015. The review covers two mandatory 
respondents: (1) Canadian Solar International Limited, which we have 
treated as a single entity with five affiliated companies identified 
below, and (2) the collapsed entity Trina Solar, consisting of 
Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd., and Trina Solar (Changzhou) 
Science and Technology Co., Ltd., which we have continued to treat as a 
single entity with four additional affiliated companies identified 
below. We received comments from interested parties on our Preliminary 
Results. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made 
changes to the margin calculations for the Final Results of this 
administrative review. The final weighted-average dumping margins are 
listed below in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.

DATES: Effective June 27, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 22, 2016, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the preliminary results of the 2014-2015 administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on solar cells from the PRC.\1\ For 
events subsequent to the Preliminary Results, see the Department's 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.\2\ On March 30, 2017, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), the Department extended the deadline for issuing the final 
results by 60 days.\3\ The deadline for the final results is June 20, 
2017.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by parties 
in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues that 
parties raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, follows as an appendix to this notice. The Issues and 
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 https://access.trade.gov and to all parties in the 
Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The paper copy and electronic version of 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we made 
revisions to our preliminary calculations of the weighted-average 
dumping margins for mandatory respondents, Canadian Solar \5\ and 
Trina.6 7
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In these final results of review, the Department has 
continued to treat the following six companies as a single entity: 
Canadian Solar International Limited/Canadian Solar Manufacturing 
(Changshu), Inc./Canadian Solar Manufacturing (Luoyang), Inc./CSI 
Cells Co., Ltd./CSI-GCL Solar Manufacturing (YanCheng) Co., Ltd./CSI 
Solar Power (China) Inc. (collectively, Canadian Solar). See 
Preliminary Results, 81 FR at 93888, 93889 and PDM at 6 7.
    \6\ In these final results of review, the Department has 
continued to treat the following six companies as a single entity: 
Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd./Trina Solar (Changzhou) 
Science & Technology Co., Ltd./Yancheng Trina Solar Energy 
Technology Co., Ltd./Changzhou Trina Solar Yabang Energy Co., Ltd./
Turpan Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd./Hubei Trina Solar Energy Co., 
Ltd. (collectively, Trina). See Preliminary Results, 81 FR at 93888, 
93889 and PDM at 6-7.
    \7\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at comments 4, 7, 8, 16, 
17, 20, 21, 22, and 24.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that seven companies had no 
shipments during the POR.\8\ Consistent with the Department's 
assessment practice in NME cases, we completed the review with respect 
to the above-named companies. However, we have reexamined the record 
and determined that we made an error in the Preliminary Results by not 
recognizing that Shenzhen Glory Industries Co., Ltd. (Shenzhen Glory) 
timely filed a no-shipment certification.\9\ We have reviewed Shenzhen 
Glory's no shipment certification and have found that Shenzhen Glory 
had no shipments during this POR. In addition, we found that Hangzhou 
Sunny Energy Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (Sunny), a company we 
preliminarily determined had no shipments during the POR, had a 
reviewable sale/entry of subject merchandise during the POR. Therefore, 
for these Final Results, we find that a total of seven companies had no 
shipments during the POR.\10\ As noted

[[Page 29035]]

in the ``Assessment'' section below, the Department will issue 
appropriate instructions with respect to these companies to CBP based 
on our Final Results.\11\ In addition, these companies will maintain 
their rate from the most recent segment in which they participated.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Preliminary Results, 81 FR at 93888, 93889.
    \9\ See Shenzhen Glory's February 24, 2016 Notice of No Sales 
Letter.
    \10\ Those companies are: BYD (Shangluo) Industrial Co., Ltd., 
Canadian Solar Inc., Dongguan Sunworth Solar Energy Co., Ltd., 
Jiangsu High Hope Int'l Group, Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd/Luoyang 
Suntech Power Co., Ltd., Zhongli Talesun Solar Co. Ltd, and Shenzhen 
Glory. On January 6, 2017, the Department placed on the record 
certain factual information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) regarding the no shipments claims and provided interested 
parties with an opportunity to comment on the information. See 
Department Letter re: Release of U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
Information Relating to No Shipment Claims Made in the 2014-2015 
Administrative Review of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells from 
the People's Republic of China, dated January 6, 2017. Wuxi Suntech 
Power Co., Ltd. commented on the information, arguing that none of 
the new information on the record contradicts the Department's 
preliminary decision regarding its no shipment claim. No other 
parties commented on the information. See Wuxi Suntech Power Co., 
Ltd.'s January 13, 2017 Comments on CBP Information.
    \11\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties); see also the ``Assessment'' section of this 
notice, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Canadian 
Solar, Trina, and 24 other companies/company groups demonstrated their 
eligibility for separate rates, but that Jiangsu Sunlink PV Technology 
Co., Ltd., Ningbo Hisheen Electrical Co., Ltd., and Shenzhen Glory had 
not demonstrated their entitlement to separate rates status because 
they did not file either a separate rate application or certification 
with the Department.\12\ However, as noted above, for these Final 
Results, the Department has determined that Shenzhen Glory timely filed 
a no shipments claim and record information supports its claim. 
Additionally, as explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, the 
Department has determined that Sunny is eligible for separate rate 
status, but that Ningbo Qixin Solar Electrical Appliance Co., Ltd. 
(Ningbo Qixin) did not meet the requirements for obtaining a separate 
rate. Therefore, for these Final Results, the Department finds that 
Jiangsu Sunlink PV Technology Co., Ltd., Ningbo Hisheen Electrical Co., 
Ltd., and Ningbo Qixin are not eligible for separate rate status and 
thus, are part of the PRC-wide entity. The Department assigned a 
dumping margin to the separate rate companies that it did not 
individually examine, but which demonstrated their eligibility for a 
separate rate, based on the mandatory respondents' dumping margins.\13\

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the POR:

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

    Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity and the 
Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an exporter 
conditionally subject to administrative reviews,\14\ we did not conduct 
a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the weighted-average dumping 
margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 238.95 percent) is not subject to 
change as a result of this review.\15\

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

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days

[[Page 29036]]

after the publication date of these Final Results of review. In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or 
customer-)specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this 
review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department 
will calculate importer- (or customer)-specific assessment rates for 
merchandise subject to this review. Where the respondent reported 
reliable entered values, the Department calculated importer- (or 
customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins 
calculated for all U.S. sales to the importer- (or customer) and 
dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to the 
importer- (or customer).\16\ Where the Department calculated an 
importer- (or customer)-specific weighted-average dumping margin by 
dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to the 
importer- (or customer) by the total sales quantity associated with 
those transactions, the Department will direct CBP to assess importer- 
(or customer)-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit 
rates.\17\ Where an importer- (or customer)-specific ad valorem or per-
unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP 
to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation. Where 
either the respondent's weighted average dumping margin is zero or de 
minimis, or an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem or per-unit 
rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\18\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For merchandise whose sale/entry was not reported in the U.S. sales 
database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this 
review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., 
at the individually-examined exporter's cash deposit rate), the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide 
rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\19\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the Final Results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of 
this notice in the Federal Register, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate listed for each exporter in the table in 
the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice, except if the 
rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then the cash 
deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated PRC and non-
PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate previously established for the 
PRC-wide entity (i.e., 238.95 percent); and (4) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these Final 
Results within five days of publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders (APO)

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to APO of 
their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305, 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 of the Final Results of this antidumping duty 
administrative review is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(5).
