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.

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).
