Date: 2012-05-25
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``Department'') preliminarily determines that crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (``solar cells''), from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (``LTFV''), as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). The estimated margins of sales at LTFV are shown in the ``Preliminary Determination'' section of this notice.
Final Withdrawal of Regulations Pertaining to Imports of Cotton Woven Fabric and Short Supply Procedures
Document Number: 2012-12791
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-05-25
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
Import Administration (``IA'') issues this final rule withdrawing regulations pertaining to imports of cotton woven fabric and short supply procedures. Both sets of regulations are obsolete: The tariff quota on cotton woven fabric expired in 2009, and the short supply voluntary restraints have not affected U.S. trade for over 19 years. The removal of these regulations will simplify research into the trade laws and eliminate confusion for both United States importers and foreign exporters.
