Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews, and Revocation of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, in Part, 71615-71617 [2021-27326]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 240 / Friday, December 17, 2021 / Notices to the application of Supermel’s G&A and interest expenses.6 For a detailed discussion of the aforementioned ministerial error allegation, as well as Commerce’s analysis of Supermel’s comments, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(g)(1), Commerce’s failure to apply Supermel’s G&A and interest expenses is significant because its correction results in a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the estimated weightedaverage dumping margin calculated in the Preliminary Determination (i.e., a change from an estimated weightedaverage dumping margin of 29.61 percent to 10.52 percent). Therefore, we are correcting the ministerial error and amending our Preliminary Determination accordingly.7 Amended Preliminary Determination We are amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the correction of a significant ministerial error made in the margin calculation for Supermel in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e). In addition, because the preliminary allothers rate was based, in part, on the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Supermel, we are also amending the all-others rate.8 As a result of the correction of the ministerial error, the revised estimated weightedaverage dumping margin for Supermel and the revised all-others rate are as follows: Estimated weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter/producer jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 Apia´rio Diamante Comercial Exportadora Ltda/Apia´rio Diamante Produc¸a˜o e Comercial de Mel Ltda 9 .........

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews and Revocation of the 
Orders, in Part

    In its comments, SOURCE Global agreed with, and supported, 
Commerce's Preliminary Results and requested that Commerce apply the 
revocation to the earliest possible date.\6\ Because no party submitted 
comments opposing the preliminary results of these CCRs, and the record 
contains no other information or evidence that calls into question the 
Preliminary Results, Commerce determines, pursuant to sections 
751(d)(1) and 782(h) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.222(g), that there are 
changed circumstances that warrant revocation of the Orders, in part. 
Specifically, because the producers accounting for substantially all of 
the production of the domestic like product to which the Orders pertain 
have not expressed interest in maintaining the relief provided by the 
Orders with respect to the off-grid small portable CSPV panels, as 
described below, Commerce is revoking the Orders, in part, with respect 
to the following off-grid small portable CSPV panels:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Application of the Final Results of Reviews

    SOURCE Global requested that Commerce apply the final results of 
these reviews to ``all unliquidated entries of the merchandise covered 
by the revocation that are not covered by the final results of an 
administrative review or automatic liquidation instruction.'' \8\ 
Section 751(d)(3) of the Act provides that ``{a{time}  determination 
under this section to revoke an order . . . shall apply with respect to 
unliquidated entries of the subject merchandise which are entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date 
determined by the administering authority.'' Commerce's general 
practice is to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
liquidate without regard to antidumping and countervailing duties, and 
to refund any estimated antidumping and countervailing duties on, all 
unliquidated entries of the merchandise covered by a revocation that 
are not covered by the final results of an administrative review or 
automatic liquidation.\9\

    Consistent with this practice, we are applying the final results of 
these CCRs to all unliquidated entries of the merchandise covered by 
the revocations which have been entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after December 1, 2020, for the AD Order, and 
January 1, 2020, for the CVD Order. These are the beginning dates of 
the earliest periods of review not covered by the final results of an 
administrative review or automatic liquidation instructions (i.e., 
December 1, 2020 through November 30, 2021 for the AD Order and January 
1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 for the CVD Order).

Instructions to CBP

    Because we determine that there are changed circumstances that 
warrant the revocation of the Orders, in part, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate without regard to antidumping and countervailing duties, and 
to refund any estimated antidumping and countervailing duties on, all 
unliquidated entries of the merchandise covered by this partial 
revocation on or after December 1, 2020, for purposes of the AD Order 
and January 1, 2020, for purposes of the CVD Order.
    Commerce intends to issue instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 
days after the date of publication of these final results of CCRs in 
the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of 
International Trade, the instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate 
relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for a 
statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication).

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion 
to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of CCRs in 
accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.216, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), and 19 CFR 351.222.
