North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Article 1904 Binational Panel Review: Notice of No Further Proceedings, 16587-16588 [2021-06464]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 59 / Tuesday, March 30, 2021 / Notices Proposed Partial Revocation of the Solar Cells Order SOURCE Global proposes that the Solar Cells Orders be revoked, in part, with respect to certain off-grid small portable CSPV panels as described below: (1). Off-grid CSPV panels in rigid form with a glass cover, with each of the following physical characteristics, whether or not assembled into a fully completed off-grid hydropanel whose function is conversion of water vapor into liquid water: (A) A total power output of no more than 80 watts per panel; (B) A surface area of less than 5,000 square centimeters (cm2) per panel; (C) Do not include a built-in inverter; (D) Do not have a frame around the edges of the panel; (E) Include a clear glass back panel; and (F) Must include a permanently connected wire that terminates in a two-port rectangular connector. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Initiation of CCRs, and Consideration of Revocation of the Solar Cells Orders, in Part Pursuant to section 751(b) of the Act, Commerce will conduct a CCR upon receipt of a request from an interested party 8 that shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of an order. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.216(d), Commerce determines that the information submitted by SOURCE Global, and the domestic producer’s affirmative statement of no interest in the Solar Cells Orders with respect to the products described by SOURCE Global, constitute a sufficient basis to conduct CCRs of the Solar Cells Orders. Section 782(h)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) provide that Commerce may revoke an order (in whole or in part) if it determines that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of interest in the order, in whole or in part. In addition, in the event that Commerce determines an expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits Commerce to combine the notices of initiation and preliminary results. In its administrative practice, Commerce has interpreted ‘‘substantially all’’ to mean producers accounting for at least 85 percent of the total U.S. production of the domestic like product covered by the order.9 8 SOURCE Global reported in its December 4, 2020, request for changed circumstances reviews that it is an importer of certain off-grid small portable CSPV panels. As such, SOURCE Global is an interested party within the meaning of section 771(9)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)(29)(ii). 9 See, e.g., Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:59 Mar 29, 2021 Jkt 253001 Domestic producer SPMOR stated that it does not object to the scope modification proposed by SOURCE Global. However, because SPMOR did not indicate whether it accounts for substantially all of the U.S. production of the domestic like product covered by the orders, we are not combining this notice of initiation with a preliminary determination, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii). Rather, we will provide interested parties with an opportunity to address the issue of domestic industry support with respect to the partial revocation of the Solar Cells Orders, as explained below. After examining comments, if any, concerning domestic industry support, we will issue the preliminary results of these CCRs. Public Comment Interested parties are invited to provide comments and/or factual information regarding these CCRs, including comments on industry support and the proposed partial revocation language. Comments and factual information may be submitted to Commerce no later than ten days after the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal comments and rebuttal factual information may be filed with Commerce no later than seven days after the comments and/or factual information are filed.10 All submissions must be filed electronically using Enforcement and Compliance’s AD and CVD Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).11 An electronically filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS, by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on the due dates set forth in this notice. Note that Commerce has temporarily modified certain of its requirements for serving documents containing business proprietary information until further notice.12 Preliminary and Final Results of the CCRs Commerce intends to publish in the Federal Register a notice of the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, and Intent To Revoke Order in Part, 77 FR 42276 (July 18, 2012), unchanged in Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, and Determination To Revoke Order, in Part, 77 FR 53176 (August 31, 2012). 10 Submissions of rebuttal factual information must comply with 19 CFR 351.301(b)(2). 11 See generally 19 CFR 351.303. 12 See Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 29615 (May 18, 2020); and Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 10, 2020).
