SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 9, 2020, Commerce published the final results of the 2017 administrative review of the CVD order on solar cells from China in the Federal Register.1 On December 2, 2020, LONGi Solar Technology Co. Ltd. (LONGi) submitted a ministerial error allegation stating that Commerce incorrectly identified it as ‘‘LERRI Solar Technology Co., Ltd.’’ (LERRI) when, according to LONGi, its name is ‘‘LONGi Solar Technology Co. Ltd. (a.k.a. LERRI Solar Technology Co., Ltd.).’’ On December 28, 2020, ministerial error allegations were timely submitted by JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co., Ltd.

(Risen Energy),3 and Trina Solar Co., Ltd. (formerly Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd.) (Trina Solar).4 JA Solar alleged that Commerce made certain errors when calculating its benefits regarding the Provision of Solar Grade Polysilicon for Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR) and the Provision of Land for LTAR programs. Risen Energy alleged that Commerce relied on incorrect inland freight costs when calculating its benefits for the Provision of Solar Glass for LTAR and the Provision of Aluminum Extrusions for LTAR programs. Finally, Trina Solar alleged that Commerce identified it incorrectly in the Final Results. No interested party commented on any of these allegations. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, and modules, laminates, and panels, consisting of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not partially or fully assembled into other products, including, but not limited to, modules, laminates, panels, and building integrated materials.5 Merchandise covered by the order is classifiable under subheading 8501.61.0000, 8507.20.80, 8541.40.6020, 8541.40.6030, and 8501.31.8000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Ministerial Errors jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Section 351.224(e) of Commerce’s regulations provides that Commerce will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any ministerial error by amending the final determination or the final results of the review. Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (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.’’ 3 See Risen Energy’s Letter, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells from the People’s Republic of China: Ministerial Error,’’ dated December 28, 2020. 4 See Trina Solar’s Letter, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Correction of Clerical Error in Final Results and Forthcoming Draft Customs,’’ dated December 28, 2020. 5 For a complete description of the scope of the order, see Final Results IDM. VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:04 Apr 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 We analyzed the ministerial error comments and determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (f), that we made the following ministerial errors: 6 (1) In the Final Results, we inadvertently did not include the sales from one of JA Solar’s certain crossowned affiliates when calculating its sales denominator for the Provision of Solar Grade Polysilicon for LTAR program. (2) We incorrectly calculated the benefit for certain of JA Solar’s crossowned affiliates with respect to the Provision of Land for LTAR Program by erroneously applying POR payments to separate land parcels instead of applying these payments to a single parcel; incorrectly relying on the land benchmark price instead of the benefit at the time of receipt to allocate benefits across the average useful life, including the POR and; incorrectly including a land parcel in JA Solar’s benefit calculation even though benefits from this land parcel were expensed prior to the POR. (3) As noted by Risen Energy, we applied an incorrect inland freight value when building Risen Energy’s benchmarks for the Provision of Solar Glass for LTAR and the Provision of Aluminum Extrusions for LTAR program. (4) We incorrectly referenced Trina Solar as ‘‘Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd.,’’ instead of as ‘‘Trina Solar Co., Ltd.’’ when listing the Non-Selected Companies Under Review. (5) Finally, we independently identified a ministerial error which was committed when we inadvertently did not include Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co., Ltd. as one of JA Solar’s cross-owned entities in the Final Results. We find that we did not commit a ministerial error by not including ‘‘LONGi Solar Technology Co., Ltd.’’ in the name that we used to identify LERRI, because a review was requested and initiated under the name LERRI and not under LONGi.7 Thus, our omission of LONGi was not a ministerial error.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 9, 2020, Commerce published the final results of the 
2017 administrative review of the CVD order on solar cells from China 
in the Federal Register.\1\ On December 2, 2020, LONGi Solar Technology 
Co. Ltd. (LONGi) submitted a ministerial error allegation stating that 
Commerce incorrectly identified it as ``LERRI Solar Technology Co., 
Ltd.'' (LERRI) when, according to LONGi, its name is ``LONGi Solar 
Technology Co. Ltd. (a.k.a. LERRI Solar Technology Co., Ltd.).'' On 
December 28, 2020, ministerial error allegations were timely submitted 
by JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co., Ltd. (JA Solar),\2\ Risen

[[Page 17357]]

Energy Co., Ltd. (Risen Energy),\3\ and Trina Solar Co., Ltd. (formerly 
Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd.) (Trina Solar).\4\ JA Solar 
alleged that Commerce made certain errors when calculating its benefits 
regarding the Provision of Solar Grade Polysilicon for Less Than 
Adequate Remuneration (LTAR) and the Provision of Land for LTAR 
programs. Risen Energy alleged that Commerce relied on incorrect inland 
freight costs when calculating its benefits for the Provision of Solar 
Glass for LTAR and the Provision of Aluminum Extrusions for LTAR 
programs. Finally, Trina Solar alleged that Commerce identified it 
incorrectly in the Final Results. No interested party commented on any 
of these allegations.

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

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is crystalline silicon 
photovoltaic cells, and modules, laminates, and panels, consisting of 
crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not partially or 
fully assembled into other products, including, but not limited to, 
modules, laminates, panels, and building integrated materials.\5\ 
Merchandise covered by the order is classifiable under subheading 
8501.61.0000, 8507.20.80, 8541.40.6020, 8541.40.6030, and 8501.31.8000 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). 
Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a complete description of the scope of the order, see 
Final Results IDM.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Errors

    Section 351.224(e) of Commerce's regulations provides that Commerce 
will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any 
ministerial error by amending the final determination or the final 
results of the review. Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (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.''
    We analyzed the ministerial error comments and determined, in 
accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and 
(f), that we made the following ministerial errors: \6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Memorandum, ``Countervailing Duty Administrative Review 
of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled 
Into Modules, from the People's Republic of China: Allegations of 
Ministerial Errors in the Final Results,'' dated concurrently with, 
and hereby adopted by, this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1) In the Final Results, we inadvertently did not include the 
sales from one of JA Solar's certain cross-owned affiliates when 
calculating its sales denominator for the Provision of Solar Grade 
Polysilicon for LTAR program.
    (2) We incorrectly calculated the benefit for certain of JA Solar's 
cross-owned affiliates with respect to the Provision of Land for LTAR 
Program by erroneously applying POR payments to separate land parcels 
instead of applying these payments to a single parcel; incorrectly 
relying on the land benchmark price instead of the benefit at the time 
of receipt to allocate benefits across the average useful life, 
including the POR and; incorrectly including a land parcel in JA 
Solar's benefit calculation even though benefits from this land parcel 
were expensed prior to the POR.
    (3) As noted by Risen Energy, we applied an incorrect inland 
freight value when building Risen Energy's benchmarks for the Provision 
of Solar Glass for LTAR and the Provision of Aluminum Extrusions for 
LTAR program.
    (4) We incorrectly referenced Trina Solar as ``Trina Solar Energy 
Co., Ltd.,'' instead of as ``Trina Solar Co., Ltd.'' when listing the 
Non-Selected Companies Under Review.
    (5) Finally, we independently identified a ministerial error which 
was committed when we inadvertently did not include Shanghai JA Solar 
Technology Co., Ltd. as one of JA Solar's cross-owned entities in the 
Final Results.
    We find that we did not commit a ministerial error by not including 
``LONGi Solar Technology Co., Ltd.'' in the name that we used to 
identify LERRI, because a review was requested and initiated under the 
name LERRI and not under LONGi.\7\ Thus, our omission of LONGi was not 
a ministerial error.

    \7\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 9297 (March 14, 2019).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results of Review

    As a result of correcting the ministerial errors as alleged by JA 
Solar and Risen Energy, we determine that the following countervailable 
subsidy rates exist for the POR:
