SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending the final results of the countervailing duty (CVD) administrative review of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (solar cells), from the People’s Republic of China (China) to correct two ministerial errors. The period of review (POR) is January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016. DATES: Applicable December 13, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gene H. Calvert, AD/CVD Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482–3586. AGENCY: Background In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), on August 28, 2019, Commerce published its final results in the administrative review of the CVD order on solar cells from China covering the POR.1 On September 9, 2019, Jinko Solar Co., Ltd, a mandatory respondent in this administrative review, timely submitted ministerial error allegations concerning the Final Results.2 No other parties 1 See 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 Rescission of Review, in Part; 2016, 84 FR 45125 (August 28, 2019) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (Final Results Decision Memorandum) (collectively, Final Results). 2 Jinko Solar Co., Ltd. filed its allegations on behalf of itself and certain affiliated companies: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submitted ministerial error allegations or commented on Jinko Solar’s allegations. Complaints were filed with the U.S. Court of International Trade (the Court) challenging the Final Results. The United States sought leave from the Court to address these ministerial error allegations. The Court granted the United States’ request and allowed until December 13, 2019 to publish any amended final results in the Federal Register. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the CVD order is solar cells from China, 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 Final Results Decision Memorandum.3 Ministerial Errors Section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial. As discussed in the Response to Ministerial Error Allegations, Commerce finds that the errors alleged by Jinko Solar regarding the calculations for the benchmarks used to calculate benefits with respect to the Provision of Electricity for Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR) Program and the Provision for Aluminum Extrusions for LTAR Program constitute ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f).4 In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the Final Results to correct these ministerial errors. Specifically, Commerce is amending the net subsidy rates for Jinko Solar and for the companies for which Jinko Solar Import and Export Co., Ltd.; JinkoSolar International Limited; and Zhejiang Jinko Solar Co., Ltd. (collectively, Jinko Solar). See Jinko Solar’s Letter, ‘‘Countervailing Duty Order on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled into Modules: Jinko’s Ministerial Error Comments,’’ dated September 9, 2019 (Ministerial Error Allegations). 3 See Final Results Decision Memorandum at 3– 4. 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, from the People’s Republic of China; 2016: Response to Ministerial Error Allegations in the Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Response to Ministerial Error Allegations).

Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled 
Into Modules, From the People's Republic of China: Amended Final 
Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2016

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending the final 
results of the countervailing duty (CVD) administrative review of 
crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into 
modules (solar cells), from the People's Republic of China (China) to 
correct two ministerial errors. The period of review (POR) is January 
1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.

DATES: Applicable December 13, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gene H. Calvert, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue 
NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-3586.

Background

    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), on August 28, 2019, 
Commerce published its final results in the administrative review of 
the CVD order on solar cells from China covering the POR.\1\ On 
September 9, 2019, Jinko Solar Co., Ltd, a mandatory respondent in this 
administrative review, timely submitted ministerial error allegations 
concerning the Final Results.\2\ No other parties submitted ministerial 
error allegations or commented on Jinko Solar's allegations. Complaints 
were filed with the U.S. Court of International Trade (the Court) 
challenging the Final Results. The United States sought leave from the 
Court to address these ministerial error allegations. The Court granted 
the United States' request and allowed until December 13, 2019 to 
publish any amended final results in the Federal Register.

Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review and Rescission 
of Review, in Part; 2016, 84 FR 45125 (August 28, 2019) and 
accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (Final Results Decision 
Memorandum) (collectively, Final Results).
    \2\ Jinko Solar Co., Ltd. filed its allegations on behalf of 
itself and certain affiliated companies: Jinko Solar Import and 
Export Co., Ltd.; JinkoSolar International Limited; and Zhejiang 
Jinko Solar Co., Ltd. (collectively, Jinko Solar). See Jinko Solar's 
Letter, ``Countervailing Duty Order on Crystalline Silicon 
Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled into Modules: Jinko's 
Ministerial Error Comments,'' dated September 9, 2019 (Ministerial 
Error Allegations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the CVD order is solar cells from China, 
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 Final Results Decision Memorandum.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Final Results Decision Memorandum at 3-4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Errors

    Section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a 
``ministerial error'' as an error in addition, subtraction, or other 
arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, 
duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional 
error which the Secretary considers ministerial. As discussed in the 
Response to Ministerial Error Allegations, Commerce finds that the 
errors alleged by Jinko Solar regarding the calculations for the 
benchmarks used to calculate benefits with respect to the Provision of 
Electricity for Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR) Program and the 
Provision for Aluminum Extrusions for LTAR Program constitute 
ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f).\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Countervailing Duty Administrative Review 
of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled 
Into Modules, from the People's Republic of China; 2016: Response to 
Ministerial Error Allegations in the Final Results,'' dated 
concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Response to 
Ministerial Error Allegations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), 
Commerce is amending the Final Results to correct these ministerial 
errors. Specifically, Commerce is amending the net subsidy rates for 
Jinko Solar and for the companies for which

[[Page 68103]]

a review was requested, but which were not selected as mandatory 
company respondents (i.e., the non-selected companies subject to this 
administrative review).\5\ Commerce notes that correcting these two 
ministerial errors has no impact on the subsidy rate calculated in the 
Final Results for the other mandatory respondent in this administrative 
review, Canadian Solar Inc. (Canadian Solar). The revised net subsidy 
rates are provided below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Consistent with the Final Results, for the non-selected 
companies, Commerce calculated an amended rate by weight-averaging 
the amended subsidy rate for Jinko Solar with the subsidy rate 
calculated in the Final Results for Canadian Solar (as noted above, 
correcting these ministerial errors has no impact on the subsidy 
rate calculated for Canadian Solar in the Final Results) using their 
publicly-ranged sales data for exports of subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results

    As a result of correcting the two ministerial errors, Commerce 
determines the countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/
exporters under review to be as follows:

Assessment Rates/Cash Deposits

    Normally, Commerce would issue appropriate assessment instructions 
to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 15 days after the date of 
publication of these amended final results of review, to liquidate 
shipments of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by the 
companies listed above entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016. 
However, between September 27, 2019 and October 28, 2019, the Court 
enjoined liquidation of certain entries that are subject to the Final 
Results.\8\ Accordingly, Commerce will not instruct CBP to assess 
countervailing duties on those enjoined entries pending resolution of 
the associated liquidation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The Court issued statutory injunctions under case numbers 
19-00182 (September 27, 2019), 19-00178 (October 4, 2019), and 19-
00183 (October 28, 2019).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of 
estimated countervailing duties, in the amounts shown above for the 
companies listed above, on shipments of subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after July 28, 2019, 
which is the date of the Final Results. For all non-reviewed firms, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to collect cash deposits at the most recent 
company-specific or all-others rate applicable to the company, as 
appropriate. These cash deposits, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.
