We also adjusted the discount rates for both respondents based on our final determination that both mandatory respondents were creditworthy in certain years. Partial Rescission of Review We are rescinding this administrative review for 20 companies named in the Initiation Notice.9 In the Preliminary Results, we made a preliminary determination to rescind the review of companies for which all review requests were timely withdrawn.10 We received no comments with regard to this preliminary determination, and are accordingly rescinding the review for these companies in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d)(1). With respect to JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co., Ltd.; JingAo Solar Co., Ltd.; and Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co., Ltd. (collectively, the JA Solar Companies), the Preliminary Results stated that we preliminarily intended to rescind the review for these companies because they timely withdrew their request for review and no other party requested a review for these companies.11 This was incorrect, as petitioners also requested a review of the JA Solar Companies.12 However, we also noted that the JA Solar Companies reported that they made no exports or sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.13 We received no comments regarding whether to rescind the review of the JA Solar Companies or on what basis the review should be rescinded. As a result, we are rescinding the review with respect to the JA Solar Companies pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). All companies for which we are rescinding this administrative review are listed in Appendix II to this notice. For these companies, countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the rates of the cash deposits for estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 9 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 81 FR 6832 (February 9, 2016) (Initiation Notice). 10 See Preliminary Results. 11 Id. 12 See Letter to the Secretary from the petitioner, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Administrative Review,’’ (December 31, 2015). 13 See Department Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Administrative Review of the Countervailing Duty Order on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, from the People’s Republic of China; 2014,’’ dated concurrently with and adopted by the Preliminary Results (PDM) at 2–3.

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 to be countervailable, we find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution from a government or public entity that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.14 For a full description of the methodology underlying all of 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, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of Administrative Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated a countervailable subsidy rate for the two mandatory respondents, Canadian Solar and Trina Solar. For the non-selected companies subject to this review,15 we followed the Department’s practice, which is to base the subsidy rates on an average of the subsidy rates calculated for those companies selected for individual review, excluding de minimis rates or rates based entirely on adverse facts available.16 In this case, for the non-selected companies, we have calculated a rate by weight-averaging the calculated subsidy rates of the two mandatory respondents using their publicly-ranged sales data for exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. We find the countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/exporters under review to be as follows: Subsidy rate (percent ad valorem) Company Canadian Solar Manufacturing (Changshu) and its Cross-Owned Affiliates 17 ..................................................................................

Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled 
Into Modules, From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, and Partial Rescission of 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2014

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has completed its 
administrative review of the countervailing duty order (CVD) on 
crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into 
modules (solar cells), from the People's Republic of China (PRC) for 
the January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014, period of review (POR). 
We have determined that the mandatory respondents Canadian Solar 
Manufacturing (Changshu) Inc. and its cross-owned affiliates 
(collectively, Canadian Solar) and Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., 
Ltd. and its cross-owned affiliates (collectively, Trina Solar), 
received countervailable subsidies during the POR. The final net 
subsidy rates are listed below in the section, ``Final Results of 
Administrative Review.'' We are also rescinding the review for 20 
companies for which all review requests were timely withdrawn or for

Corrections to the Preliminary Results

    The Federal Register notice for the Preliminary Results incorrectly 
listed the case number for this review as ``C-570-971,'' instead of 
under the correct case number ``C-570-980.'' \7\ Accordingly, we now 
correct the Preliminary Results of this administrative review to be 
referenced under case number ``C-570-980.'' In addition, the 
Preliminary Results inadvertently referenced a non-selected company 
under review as ``Toenergy Technology,'' rather than its legal name, 
``Toenergy Technology Hangzhou Co., Ltd.'' \8\ We hereby correct the 
Preliminary Results to reference ``Toenergy Technology Hangzhou Co., 
Ltd,'' as a non-selected company under review.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in interested parties' briefs are addressed in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum accompanying this notice. A list of 
the issues raised by interested parties and to which we responded in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum is provided in Appendix I 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 
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 access directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and electronic versions of the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on case briefs, rebuttal briefs, and all supporting 
documentation, we made changes from the Preliminary Results. The 
Department has modified its creditworthiness findings for both 
mandatory respondents to find that the respondents were creditworthy 
during certain years. Additionally, the Department has adjusted 
Canadian Solar's inland freight charges when constructing the 
benchmarks for its purchases regarding the provision of inputs for LTAR 
programs and its discount rates for the Preferential Policy Lending 
program. We also adjusted the discount rates for both respondents based 
on our final determination that both mandatory respondents were 
creditworthy in certain years.

Partial Rescission of Review

    We are rescinding this administrative review for 20 companies named 
in the Initiation Notice.\9\ In the Preliminary Results, we made a 
preliminary determination to rescind the review of companies for which 
all review requests were timely withdrawn.\10\ We received no comments 
with regard to this preliminary determination, and are accordingly 
rescinding the review for these companies in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(d)(1). With respect to JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co., Ltd.; 
JingAo Solar Co., Ltd.; and Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co., Ltd. 
(collectively, the JA Solar Companies), the Preliminary Results stated 
that we preliminarily intended to rescind the review for these 
companies because they timely withdrew their request for review and no 
other party requested a review for these companies.\11\ This was 
incorrect, as petitioners also requested a review of the JA Solar 
Companies.\12\ However, we also noted that the JA Solar Companies 
reported that they made no exports or sales of subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR.\13\ We received no comments regarding 
whether to rescind the review of the JA Solar Companies or on what 
basis the review should be rescinded. As a result, we are rescinding 
the review with respect to the JA Solar Companies pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3).

warehouse, for consumption, during the POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(2).

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 to be countervailable, we find that there 
is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution from a government or 
public entity that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that 
the subsidy is specific.\14\ For a full description of the methodology 
underlying all of 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, see the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated a 
countervailable subsidy rate for the two mandatory respondents, 
Canadian Solar and Trina Solar. For the non-selected companies subject 
to this review,\15\ we followed the Department's practice, which is to 
base the subsidy rates on an average of the subsidy rates calculated 
for those companies selected for individual review, excluding de 
minimis rates or rates based entirely on adverse facts available.\16\ 
In this case, for the non-selected companies, we have calculated a rate 
by weight-averaging the calculated subsidy rates of the two mandatory 
respondents using their publicly-ranged sales data for exports of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. We find the 
countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/exporters under review 
to be as follows:
