SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is rescinding the changed circumstances reviews (CCRs) of the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on crystalline silicon photovoltaic products (solar products) from the People’s Republic of China (China) with respect to certain off-grid portable small panels. DATES: Applicable June 8, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark Hoadley, Enforcement and Compliance, AD/CVD Operations, Office VII, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3148. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Background On July 28, 2020, Commerce published a notice of initiation of CCRs, and consideration of revocation of the Orders, in part, with respect to certain off-grid portable small panels, pursuant to a request by Maodi Solar Technology (Dongguan) Co. Ltd. (Maodi Solar).1 On September 3, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the CCRs, preliminarily determining to revoke the Orders, in part, with respect to certain off-grid portable small panels.2 Commerce invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii).3 No party submitted comments on the Preliminary Results. On April 19, 2021, Commerce extended the deadline for the final 1 See Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Changed Circumstances Reviews, and Consideration of Revocation of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders in Part, 85 FR 45373 (July 28, 2020); see also Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order; and Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order, 80 FR 8592 (February 18, 2015) (Orders). 2 See Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews, and Intent to Revoke Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders in Part, 85 FR 54993 (September 3, 2020) (Preliminary Results). 3 See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 54996. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Jun 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 results of the CCRs by 45 days until June 2, 2021.4 On May 14, 2021, Maodi Solar informed Commerce that it ‘‘no longer wishes to pursue this action, and hereby withdraws its request for a finding of changed circumstances and partial revocation.’’ 5 No party submitted comments on Maodi Solar’s withdrawal of its CCR requests. Rescission of Reviews Although it does not specifically reference CCRs, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) provides that Commerce will rescind an administrative review if the party requesting the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Commerce’s practice has been to apply the 90-day deadline to requests for CCRs. However, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) also provides that Commerce may extend the 90-day time limit for withdrawing the request for an administrative review if we determine that it is reasonable to do so. In this case, Maodi Solar requested a rescission of this review on May 14, 2021, which is beyond 90 days from the date of initiation. However, we note that no party has objected to Maodi Solar’s rescission request. Additionally, Commerce has not expended significant resources conducting this review. Therefore, we determine that it is reasonable to extend the 90-day time limit in this instance. Consequently, Commerce has accepted Maodi Solar’s rescission request in this case as timely and is now rescinding the CCRs. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to suspend entries of subject merchandise at the appropriate cash deposit rate for all entries of solar products from China. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Deadline for Final Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews, and Revocation of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders in Part,’’ dated April 19, 2021. 5 See Maodi Solar’s Letter, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the Peoples’ Republic of China; Withdrawal of Request for Changed Circumstances Review,’’ dated May 14, 2021.

This effort was approved by the NIST Office of the Associate Director for Laboratory Programs, providing time for this work to be conducted. As COVID–19 conditions persist, populations around the U.S. and the world have and will continue to experience heat waves, floods, hurricanes, fire, and drought during the period of virus transmission and into the period of recovery (e.g., Phillips et al., 2020). There were 22 $1 billion extreme weather events in 2020. SMEs in areas vulnerable to natural hazards and disasters are particularly noteworthy in the context of COVID–19. The goal of this longitudinal effort is to inform NIST research and recommendations as well as provide Federal partners (e.g., FEMA, NOAA, and SBA) with insights into how SMEs think about disaster readiness during the pandemic, both the transmission and recovery periods. The first and second waves of data collection took place during summer 2020 and fall 2020/winter 2021, respectively and were approved under the NIST Generic Clearance #0693–0078. A third wave of data collection is proposed in order to address the research goals as SMEs begin to recover from the pandemic. This effort addresses the gap in research on the experiences of SMEs dealing with complex events generally and those that arise during a pandemic, specifically. This longitudinal study accounts for SME vulnerabilities, which may further amplify the impacts of a singular or complex event. Proposed respondents to this data collection have already registered their interest in participation in the data collection (during Wave 2). The proposed collection is critical to understand the resilience of SMEs, which in turn allows NIST to refine recommendations relevant to SMEs.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coastal Ocean Program (COP), now known as the Competitive Research Program (CRP) under the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, provides direct financial assistance through grants and cooperative agreements for research supporting the management of coastal ecosystems and the NOAA RESTORE Science Program (RSP). The statutory authority for COP is Public Law 102– 567 Section 201 (Coastal Ocean Program). NOAA was authorized to establish and administer the Restore Science Program, in consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, by the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies (RESTORE) of the Gulf States Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112– 141, Section 1604). Identified in the RESTORE Act as the Gulf Coast Ecosystem restoration Science, Observation, Monitoring, and Technology Program, the Program is commonly known as the NOAA RESTORE Science Program. In addition to standard government application requirements, applicants for financial assistance are required to submit a project summary form, current and pending form, and a key contacts form for both programs. CRP recipients are required to file annual progress reports and a project final report using CRP formats. The RSP are required to file semi-annual progress reports, a final report, and a Gantt chart showing project milestones using RSP formats. All of these requirements are needed for better evaluation of proposals and monitoring of awards. Revisions to the approved annual and final reports for CRP include the request for publication digital object identifiers (DOIs). Additional information requested for RSP semi-annual and final reports include end-user details. II. Method of Collection Respondents have a choice of either electronic or paper forms. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0384. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (revision/extension of a currently approved collection).
